Latina Candidates for #CD34? The Potential List is Growing

Home Grown, Progressive Community Activist Wendy Carrillo became the first Latina Candidate to announce her affirmative intentions to replace Congressman Becerra, as noted in the LA Times. 

"Together, we can build a campaign about the possibilities of what can be and what should be," Carrillo said in a statement. "Iā€™m choosing to run because I want a seat at the table to advocate for the people who need it most. Public service is a privilege, not a game of musical chairs. I plan to put the people first.ā€

In the short time since announcing her intentions, Candidate Carrillo's Facebook Page has garnered 500 plus "Likes" and is show signs of organized outreach ........., but her moment as the so-far, lone Latina Candidate may be fleeting.
