Leading voting rights PAC announces early support for Brandon Mosely in his bid to unseat Republican Ken Calvert in California’s 42nd Congressional District
WASHINGTON – The Voter Protection Project (VPP), the largest national PAC focused on electing voting rights champions and holding Republicans accountable for their attacks on the ballot box, proudly announces its support for educator, pastor, and nonprofit leader Brandon Mosely. With new maps on the way and a Republican opponent who supported Trump’s Big Lie, this inland empire district is likely to emerge as a critical battleground for Democrats next fall.
“The Voter Protection Project is proud to endorse educator and pastor Brandon Mosely for congress,” said Andrew Janz, Founder of the Voter Protection Project. “California’s 42nd Congressional District is currently represented by Ken Calvert, who voted to deny the certification of 2020 election results from Arizona and Pennsylvania. It’s critical that we remove Republicans like Calvert, who peddled Trump’s Big Lie, and replace him with a true public servant like Brandon Mosely.”
“The right to vote in free and fair elections is a guiding principle of our Democracy and is worth fighting for, ” said Brandon Mosley, candidate for Congress. “My opponent, Ken Calvert, attacked the core of our Democracy when he refused to accept the results of a legitimate presidential election. Instead, he’s spent three decades in Congress making it harder to vote while cozying up to big Washington special interests that fund his campaigns.”
Mosely continued to say:
“I’m proud to have the support of the Voter Protection Project and look forward to working alongside them to pass critical legislation like H.R. 1 that will ensure our elections are fair and accessible for all.”
After an $8 million dollar inaugural cycle as an organization, the Voter Protection Project is doubling down for 2022. Brandon Mosely joins other recently endorsed powerhouse candidates like recently elected Congresswoman Melanie Stansbury, Tim Ryan for Senate, Allison Russo in OH-15, and John Lira in TX-24. VPP will continue to make early investments to protect and elect frontline Democrats who have been crucial allies in the fight to restore integrity to our elections
Founded in 2019, the Voter Protection Project works to confront the architects of voter suppression directly at the ballot box. Following the Supreme Court’s Rucho v. Common Cause ruling, which stated that federal courts cannot regulate partisan gerrymandering, VPP has taken on the fight to defeat voter suppression state-by-state. During the 2020 cycle, they raised over $8-million to support candidates for office at the federal and state levels that champion fair and representative elections.
