Gil Cisneros concedes CA-39 race

Representative Gilbert R. Cisneros, Jr. (CA-39) conceded the race for California’s 39th District.

“My journey to Congress started four years ago when my wife, Jacki, and I knew there needed to be change after 2016. Service has always been an integral part of my life. I’m proud to have served my country in the U.S. Navy and again in the U.S. House of Representatives. Over the past two years, I’ve worked tirelessly to fight for the people of the 39th District—fighting to protect healthcare and those with preexisting conditions, lowering drug prices, preserving the environment, championing common-sense gun safety, making education affordable, and supporting our veterans, servicemembers, and military families.”

“I’m sorry I won’t be able to continue that work in Congress this January. I called to congratulate Young Kim on her victory. For the benefit of the district and the country, I wish her nothing but the best and hope she will stay true to her word and protect those with preexisting conditions, work to lower prescription drug prices and reinstate the SALT deduction. I hope she will continue my willingness to reach across the aisle in order to get results, because her success is the 39th District’s success.”

“I want to take a moment to thank all of my supporters who have been with me since day one, and all those who joined over the past couple years. We gave it our all every single day. A huge thank you to my wife and love of my life, Jacki, my sons, Christopher and Alexander, and all my family for having my back.”

“As the son of a public school cafeteria worker and a Vietnam Veteran, my parents could have never imagined their child being elected to Congress. I will take some time to reflect on my future and spend time with my family, but I guarantee you all that my commitment to service and my love for our country will remain strong. Service is in my blood, and I’ll continue every day to work to better my community. There’s a lot more work that needs to be done, and I’ve still got a lot of fight left in me. God bless everyone and God bless the United States of America.”

  1. You and other Democrats lost because the Democratic Party embraced:
    – Socialism
    – Defunding the police
    – Black Lives Matter & Antifa
