Katie Porter

Incumbent

A forceful fighter for consumers and California families

Rep. Katie Porter (CA-45) spent nearly twenty years as a consumer protection attorney fighting powerful interests and Wall Street banks on behalf of consumers and California families. Before running for Congress, she served as California’s appointed bank watchdog, ensuring homeowners were treated fairly. She now sits on the Financial Services Committee, a committee she fought to get on in order to work on policies to help strengthen consumer protections.

A champion of campaign finance reform

Before signing on as an original co-sponsor of H.R. 1, Porter was a constant advocate for campaign finance reform on the campaign trail, releasing a comprehensive reform agenda and rejecting donations from corporate PACs.

A critical re-election campaign

Porter, who beat former Rep. Mimi Walters by just four percent in 2018, has already been the subject of Republican attack ads. ECU spent over half a million dollars to elect Porter, and enthusiastically stands with one of Congress’ leading reform champions as she seeks re-election in Orange County.
