San Jose, CA – Today, Congresswoman Anna Eshoo announced her endorsement of Ann Ravel for State Senate. Eshoo has represented Silicon Valley in the House of Representatives since 1993. She is the first woman ever to serve as Chair of the Health Subcommittee of the House Energy and Commerce Committee.

“Ann Ravel is a lifelong consumer advocate, a fierce defender of fair elections and a champion for women. But above all else, she is a fighter – willing to take on powerful interests on behalf of the people and her community,” said Eshoo. “I can think of no better way to add to Silicon Valley’s clout in Sacramento than sending Ann Ravel as our next state senator.”

“There are few people, if any, who’ve done more for the people of Silicon Valley over the last forty years than Anna Eshoo,” said Ravel. “I’m deeply honored to have her support for our campaign to take back power for the people and make our state government work better for all of us.”

Eshoo joins a growing coalition of distinguished leaders and organizations who are supporting Ravel’s bid for State Senate. Ravel has announced endorsements from President Barack Obama, Members of Congress Katie Porter, Jackie Speier and John Sarbanes, San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo, Santa Clara County District Attorney Jeff Rosen, Supervisors Susan Ellenberg and Joe Simitian, the Silicon Valley Organization, Latinas Lead California and EMILY’s List. During the primary, The Mercury News called Ravel a “standout” candidate and said “Ravel is the one with the strength of character and respect to make a difference on the most important issues facing Californians.”

Ravel’s lifetime of public service has been defined by her fights to protect consumers and empower voters. Twice she was appointed by President Barack Obama to serve in his administration – first fighting on behalf of consumers at the Department of Justice, then working to make our elections fairer and more transparent as head of the Federal Election Commission.

Ravel was also appointed by Governor Jerry Brown as Chair of California’s Fair Political Practices Commission, leading a first-in-the-nation fight against the Koch Brothers and their illegal dark money network. As Santa Clara County’s chief attorney, she took on tobacco companies and won support for better healthcare, won pioneering cases protecting consumers, was a champion of a precedent-setting case to safeguard children from lead paint, and has always strongly defended equality for all.
