BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — Today TJ Cox, former Democratic representative for California’s 21st Congressional District, voiced his approval for Rudy Salas’ run for his former seat.
Cox said that Salas is the best choice in order to unseat Republican Congressman David Valadao in the 2022 election.
“There’s no question that Rudy gives us our best shot of flipping a seat from red to blue here in the Valley,” said Cox. “No one knows their district better than Rudy. No one has delivered more for their district than Rudy. This year alone he has delivered over 50 million dollars for public safety, water and education. He’s raised wages for farmworkers and lowered healthcare costs for families. His track record as a fearless and independent representative for the Valley will serve him well in Congress.”
Salas gives praise to Cox stating it is an honor to have the former congressmember on his side.
“It’s an honor to call TJ a friend and supporter,” Salas said. “I know how our communities are better-off as a result of his service.”
