WCF President/CEO Sam Bennett’s Statement on Congresswoman-Elect Janice Hahn’s Victory in CA-36

(WASHINGTON, DC) – “WCF is thrilled to extend our sincerest congratulations to WCF-endorsee and now Congresswoman-elect Janice Hahn. As a Los Angeles City Councilwoman, Janice has served as a dedicated advocate for her constituents. There is no doubt in my mind that Congresswoman-elect Hahn will bring her esteemed commitment and integrity to our nation’s Capitol.

WCF was proud to be one of the first national women’s organizations to endorse Janice, and I personally look forward to watching her – and her community – flourish under her new role. Make no mistake about it – today, women and their families have won in California’s 36th District.”

The Women’s Campaign Forum is the country’s only national, non-partisan organization dedicated to advancing the political participation of talented women leaders who support reproductive health choices and options at all levels of office, throughout the country, and regardless of political party.
