Raul Ruiz

Incumbent

Rep. Raul Ruiz (CA-36) is a champion for affordable healthcare, veterans, and small businesses. Prior to running for Congress, he served his community as an emergency physician and founded the Coachella Valley Healthcare Initiative where he worked to improve public health and access to healthcare in his community. Ruiz currently serves on the House Energy and Commerce Subcommittees on Health, Energy, and Oversight.

In office, Ruiz helped pass H.R. 1, the For the People Act, which is the most comprehensive anti-corruption and democracy reform bill to pass the House since Watergate. The bill is being denied a fair vote by Mitch McConnell and the special interests who control the U.S. Senate. H.R. 1 would take on dark money and foreign interference in our elections, fix our broken campaign finance system, tighten ethics laws, crack down on lobbyists, limit partisan gerrymandering used to manipulate elections, and expand and protect the right to vote. As part of his commitment to clean up Washington, Ruiz also introduced a bill banning members of Congress from using taxpayer funds to fly first class and bills to close loopholes that allow candidates and elected officials to profit from their positions.
