Over 50 Orange County local officials endorse Dave Min for Congress

Over 50 local government officials from Orange County endorsed State Senator Dave Min in his campaign for U.S. Congress in the 47th Congressional District. This announcement comes less than a week after Senator Min first announced his Congressional candidacy last Wednesday and follows endorsements from current CA-47 Congresswoman Katie Porter, as well as from Asian Americans & Pacific Islanders Rising & Empowering Political Action Committee (ASPIRE PAC), the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus, which represents 19 Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Members of Congress.

“I am proud of the support we are building for our campaign for Congress,” said State Senator Min. “As an elected official, I have had a simple philosophy: keep your promises and serve your constituents. Whether it’s been ending gun shows at the Orange County Fairgrounds, fighting to stop offshore oil drilling, or serving the needs of our local small businesses, my staff and I have been hard at work trying to deliver on the principles that got me elected. I am humbled by the overwhelming support we are receiving from our local partners, and I look forward to continuing our work together when I am in Congress.”

Senator Min, the only Korean-American in the state legislature has proven himself an incredibly effective legislative leader in the Senate, authoring 16 bills signed into law by the Governor, including leading legislation on hate crimes, gun violence prevention, family safety, and women’s reproductive rights. In the wake of the 2021 Huntington Beach Oil Spill, he stood up to the oil industry and led efforts to end offshore drilling. Min serves as Chair of the Senate Natural Resources and Water Committee and as Senate Vice Chair of the Asian and Pacific Islander Legislative Caucus. He previously chaired the Senate Cybersecurity Select Committee.

Before entering the State Senate, Min was a law professor at UC Irvine, where he taught and researched in the area of business law. He resides with his wife Jane, a UC Irvine law professor who specializes in domestic violence and family law, and their three children in Irvine.
