“I’m thrilled and honored to have the endorsement of the Southern California Armenian Democrats. Americans of Armenian heritage have enriched our culture, made enormous contributions to our nation, and served in the United States military in every conflict since the Civil War. I’m proud to be a longtime ally and supporter of the Armenian-American community in Southern California, including my support for official acknowledgement and condemnation of the Armenian genocide, for religious freedom around the world, and as a strong supporter of Armenian cultural groups in my community. I look forward to continuing to advocate for the issues important to the Armenian-American community in Sacramento.”
