Candidate Details

Mike Levin

CA - 49

Clean energy advocate Mike Levin is a progressive running to replace retiring GOP Rep. Darrell Issa in this northern San Diego seat. Levin, whose father’s parents were both Jewish, is an advocate for real immigration reform, Medicare for all, and has focused on reaching out to Jewish voters – the 49th has a much larger Jewish population than the national average, making up about four percent of the total population. This open district also voted for Hillary Clinton 51 percent to 43 percent in 2016 and is the only one of California’s 14 GOP-held seats where Democrats combined for a slight majority of the top-two primary vote. When elected he will fight back against Republicans’ attempts to undo the progress we’ve worked so hard to make and will champion policies that help move America forward for all.
