Nathan Hochman, candidate for California Attorney General, joins CNN, NBC, and other organizations in declaring that he will advance to the general election in November.
At the time of this release, Hochman has earned 1,204,646 votes, representing a 111,488 vote lead over the nearest candidate.
“The likely recall of Attorney General Rob Bonta’s ally, Los Angeles District Attorney George Gascon, and the recent recall of San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin, is more evidence that Californians are done tolerating fearless criminals, our downward spiraling homelessness crisis, and fentanyl ravaging our cities,” Hochman said. “We must look to the future of our majestic state and realize that it’s worth fighting for. Prior to being appointed, the incumbent Attorney General had never prosecuted a case and it shows. I have worked as a federal prosecutor, US Assistant Attorney General, defense attorney, and civil and appellate litigator as well as the President of the LA City Ethics Commission. Voters will see that my well-rounded experience will stand in stark contrast to my opponent’s absence of qualifications to be chief law enforcement officer of California.”
While the election is 21 days away from being formally certified by the California Secretary of State, Hochman has consistently been in the election’s top two with each vote update.
“The question before voters is a simple one: do you feel safer today than you did two, four, or six years ago? If the answer is no, vote for Nathan Hochman for California Attorney General,” Hochman said.
