More information about participating candidates: 

Mike Levin: Mike was raised in South Orange County, where he attended public elementary and junior high schools. Mike spent his high school years in Los Angeles at Loyola High and then went to Stanford University, where he was honored to serve as student body president. After college, Mike served in the Coro Fellows Program and then attended Duke University School of Law. After law school, he served as Executive Director of the Democratic Party of Orange County, and has worked as an attorney focused on environmental and energy regulatory compliance and government affairs. 

From his website MikeLevin.org” “When President Trump tweets about “fake news” or his staff talks about “alternative facts,” I believe that it’s more important than ever to hold Washington accountable, protect the truth, and put country over party.  We are living in unprecedented times that require accountability, transparency, and a free press.”

Paul Kerr: Paul has lived in San Diego County for over 43 years but was raised in a small, farming town in the central Arizona desert. Paul’s Dad worked for a clothing manufacturer, before moving into sales for a freight carrier. Paul’s Mom worked as a homemaker. The oldest of 6, Paul was raised in a middle-class community, by working-class parents..

From his website,.paulkerrforcongress.com, “Donald Trump and Darrell Issa are hard at work pushing policies that would harm our middle class, our health care system and our environment, all while simultaneously attacking our immigrant population. And they’ve just gotten started. None of us can afford to sit on the sidelines any longer. It’s time to put working families first!

Sara Jacobs: Sara has dedicated her career to fighting for a fairer, more equitable world and finding innovative solutions to some of the most complex problems facing the most vulnerable people -- at home and around the world. She’s running for Congress to bring a fresh approach to government, and close the opportunity gaps that exist in Southern California and across our nation. 

From her website sarajacobsforCA.com: “Our economy is changing incredibly rapidly, yet an unfair system means that regular people are falling behind faster and faster, while the rich just keep getting richer. Either we’re going to see this opportunity gap get exponentially worse, or we’re going to figure out how to use the power of technology to close it.”
