RELEASE: Hundreds of People Turn Out in Support for Gil Cisneros

Hundreds more expected on Sunday, Nov. 4th

Fullerton, Calif. – To kickoff the first day of the nation’s Get Out The Vote (GOTV) effort, nearly 600 people showed up and knocked on more than 20,000 doors on Saturday, November 3rd, covering the entire district and canvassing in support of Gil Cisneros, democratic candidate for the 39th District. The campaign far exceeded its turnout goals and expects hundreds of more supporters to step up for the Cisneros campaign now through election day. The campaign was also visited by Congresswoman Lucille Roybal Allard, Congresswoman Judy Chu, Congresswoman Linda Sanchez, Congressman Ted Lieu, Congressman Mark Takano, Senator Kevin de León, former Mayor of Los Angeles Antonio Villaraigosa, Jon Bauman of Social Security Works, and Rachel Bloom from “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend.”

“We are seeing an unprecedented amount of people voting, canvassing, and making calls for Gil Cisneros’s campaign and in this midterm election,” said Nic Jordan, Campaign Manager for the Gil Cisneros for Congress Campaign. “This should serve notice to Young Kim and signal to the entire country. California’s 39th district wants more for their community. They want affordable healthcare for their kids, they want to keep guns out of the hands of dangerous people, and they want a humane pathway to citizenship for the those who work hard and only know America as home. It’s time for a change in Washington and today’s first day of the Get Out The Vote weekend is a sign of change to come.”
