Josh Newman nets nomination of state Democratic Party for campaign to regain Senate seat

In the latest testament to his overwhelming support among Democratic activists, U.S. Army veteran, businessman, and former State Senator Josh Newman’s campaign announced that he earned the endorsement of the California Democratic Party in his rematch bid for State Senate District 29.

Following the announced endorsement, Newman commented:

“I’m extremely pleased and very grateful to receive the full support of the California Democratic Party in my current campaign for state senate. The high levels of energy and enthusiasm among activists at the state party convention this past weekend make me more optimistic than ever that we’re going to see record levels of engagement and turnout next year, with great returns not just for me but for great Democratic candidates across the state and up and down the ballot.”

Josh Newman is a United States Army veteran, community activist, father, husband, and former State Senator for the 29th Senate District of California. As an officer in the United States Army, Newman’s active duty military service included assignments with a nuclear weapons detachment in South Korea and with a conventional artillery battalion in the 25th Infantry Division. After a successful post-service professional career in the Internet and mobile technology sectors, Newman founded and served as Executive Director of ArmedForce2Workforce, an initiative founded in 2012 to assist young veterans in the Orange County/Greater Los Angeles area in the pursuit of rewarding, career-oriented post-service employment.

Continuing to give back to his community, in 2016 Newman ran a “bottom-up” campaign against the political establishment — and was elected to the California Senate. In the State Senate, Newman chaired the Senate Committee on Veterans Affairs. He also sat on the Business & Professions, Health, Insurance & Banking, and Human Services committees.

In Sacramento as well as while back home in the 29th Senate District, Newman was active and accessible, tirelessly serving the 16 cities of the 29th Senate District, continuously putting public service over politics, irrespective of the consequences. Throughout his tenure in the State Senate, Newman focused on finding common sense, pragmatic solutions that help improve the quality of life for California families. His legislation championed veteran services, mental health resources, public education, job creation, environmental protection, equal rights, transportation improvements, and fiscal responsibility.

He and his wife, Darcy Lewis, reside in Fullerton with their daughter and four rescue Chihuahuas.

  1. Do not vote for this guy. We had him recalled once already. The Democrats are hoping that we forgot about this guy, but I never will. You will know him by his extremely had hair.

  2. No big surprise that the Democratic party wants Josh back in the California Senate. He voted for every single stinking tax increase that came his way. He will continue his tax and spend ways if he is returned to his old job. He is terrible for Californians who are just trying to feed their families and his policies are a big part of the reason so many people are leaving California.
