Katie Porter

Incumbent

Supporting the Community

Katie Porter came to Congress because she believes that our democracy and our government should reflect everyday people. She is committed to putting Orange County first and works to ensure she is accessible to her constituents, both at home and while in Washington. From taking on Big Pharma to fighting the gun lobby, Porter has proven that she is dedicated to protecting families.

Fighting Special Interests

Before coming to Congress, Porter spent nearly two decades taking on the special interests that dominate our rigged political system. Porter believes power should be in the hands of the people, not corporate donors. She has seen firsthand how unlimited money and influence in politics eliminates the voters’ voices, which is why she pledged to not take a dime of corporate PAC or lobbyist money. She advocates for transparency and matches her commitment with concrete action: supporting the For the People Act and forming the End Corruption Caucus, an initiative to get Washington answering to working families not corporations.

Porter has continuously led efforts to support the interests of families and working Americans. She is a fierce advocate for fairness in a political system that is too often corrupted by money and corporations. We need to keep leaders like Porter in office who are committed to representing the American people, identifying solutions to the challenges they face, and passing the legislation needed to make change.
