Rep. Judy Chu Says Bradford “Has Always Been a Champion for Equality, the Environment, and Hard Working Families”
GARDENA, CA—Continuing to build support from prominent leaders, today former State Assemblymember Steve Bradford picked up an endorsement from Congresswoman Judy Chu in his campaign for Senate in the 35th District. Chu was the first Chinese American woman to be elected to Congress and has served in public office for over thirty years.
In announcing her support of Bradford, Congresswoman Judy Chu released the following statement:
“I am proud to support Steve Bradford for Senate. With his long track record of public service, Steve has what it takes to get the job done. He has always been a champion for equality, the environment, and hard working families which will translate to policies that address our most pressing problems. I look forward to watching him continue his work in Sacramento to improve the lives of Californians across the state. ”
Today’s announcement follows Bradford’s endorsement yesterday from widely respected environmentalist David Nahai, who served as Senior Advisor to the Clinton Climate Initiative* and who sits on the Boards of the California League of Conservation Voters* and Heal the Bay*.
Some of Bradford’s other endorsers include: Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom, California Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de León, incumbent Senator Isadore Hall, Congresswomen Janice Hahn and Karen Bass, along with both California Democratic Party Vice Chairs Alex Rooker and Eric Bauman, who also serves as Los Angeles County Democratic Party Chair.

Steve Bradford has represented portions of the 35th Senate district for eighteen years – first as a member of the Gardena City Council and then as a member of the California State Assembly.
