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.”
