Endorsements

Reyes received the endorsement of Rep. Xavier Becerra. This endorsement breaks with that of the DCCC, which endorsed Pete Aguilar early in the race.[3]

Reyes also received the endorsement of former Labor Secretary Hilda Solis. She said, "In this day and age when the powerful special interests are gaining even more power, the working families that make our country strong need a strong voice and their own tenacious fighter in Congress. Eloise Gomez Reyes is the person for the job. She has spent her entire career fighting for working families and people who can’t fight for themselves."[4]
