(San Diego, Calif.) – Kevin McCarthy, Majority Leader of the House of Representatives, and former California State Assembly Republican Leader, has announced his support for businessman Phil Graham for State Assembly.
“As someone who has spent his entire career in the private sector, Phil Graham understands what it takes to create jobs and get our economy moving,” said McCarthy. “Phil will stand up to the Democrats and liberal special interest that control Sacramento and fight for common sense reforms that matter to Californians. That means putting an end to the $70 billion high-speed train boondoggle and instead focusing on things like sustainable water, which will shape the future of our state for decades.”
“I am proud to have the Majority Leader’s support,” said Graham. “He was one of the strongest leaders we’ve had in Sacramento, and his rise and influence in the Congress is critically important for California. I look forward to working with Kevin to find ways to turn around our economy and help small businesses create jobs for people in our state.”
Kevin McCarthy was elected to Congress in 2006 and elected Majority Leader in 2014. From 2002-06, he served in the California State Assembly, serving two years as Republican Leader.
