Congressman Mike Garcia announces his endorsement of Eli Bremer
California Rep. Mike Garcia supports Bremer's Senate campaign
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(COLORADO SPRINGS, CO) – Today, Eli Bremer’s United States Senate campaign announced the endorsement of Congressman Mike Garcia (CA-25).
“Mike Garcia clearly models how Republicans can win in difficult states and difficult districts,” Bremer commented. “California had been consistently written off as a place that Republicans could pick up seats, but Mike was the first Republican to take back a Congressional seat from a Democrat in California since 1998. He won through a compelling and unique personal story, hard work, and tenacity in his campaign. He personally represents the best of his district and is someone his constituents can trust and be proud to have represent them in Washington. Mike has given Republicans in blue states a blueprint of how to be successful and I have leaned on his expertise and friendship throughout this campaign.”
“Colorado Republicans are struggling in the same way California Republicans have struggled to win and hold seats.” Garcia explains, “Our campaign and repeated wins in one of America’s toughest districts have shown that good Republicans can win if they present the right case to the voters. Having a candidate with a compelling story who truly aligns with the interests of the voters is critical. From attending the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado to competing in the Olympics, which have their U.S. headquarters in Colorado, you won’t find anyone who is more “Colorado” than Eli. He is the ideal candidate to win a U.S. Senate seat where recently Republicans have found success elusive.”
Mike Garcia is a congressman representing California’s 25th district. He grew up in his district, went on to the U.S. Naval Academy, and trained and served as a highly decorated Navy pilot, and went on to be a successful businessman. Garcia ran in the special election to replace Democrat Katie Hill, and narrowly beat CA State Assemblywoman Christy Smith in May 2020. Then in November 2020, Garcia beat Smith once again. Mike is a first-generation American citizen and the first Hispanic Republican representative to serve from California in over a century.
