MOMENTUM BUILDS FOR DEMOCRATIC CONGRESSIONAL CANDIDATE WILL ROLLINS (CA-41) WITH SLATE OF NEW ENDORSEMENTS
Will Rollins announces a slate of new endorsements that include national organizations and state and local elected officials
PALM SPRINGS, CA — Democratic congressional candidate and former federal prosecutor Will Rollins announced several new endorsements on Friday.
Congressman Brad Sherman, LGBTQ Victory Fund, Equality PAC, Lake Elsinore Mayor Timothy J. Sheridan, Palm Springs Councilmember Christy Holstege & Councilmember Geoff Kors are among those who have endorsed Rollins in the upcoming June primary election.
“At this moment in our country’s history, Congress needs representatives with a proven track
record of fighting for our institutions, the rule of law, LGBTQ rights, and our national security,”
said Equality PAC Co-Chair Congressman David Cicilline. “California’s redistricting has created an historic opportunity to flip CA41 from red to blue. Will has devoted his career to serving our country, and he’s been on the front lines in the fight against extremism. He has the drive and character to beat Ken Calvert and finally give the people of the 41st district the representation they deserve. When he is elected, I know that he’ll continue to stand up for the Constitution, equality, and our democracy.”
“I could not be more proud to have the support of these organizations and elected officials, and to build on the work of so many community members in the Inland Empire and the Coachella Valley,” stated Rollins. “Riverside County needs a representative who will join Congressman Takano & Congressman Ruiz in actually delivering for the people who live here by lowering costs on working families, improving access to affordable healthcare, and combating the devastating effects of climate change on our communities.”
About Will Rollins
Will Rollins is a former federal prosecutor who focused on counterterrorism and counterintelligence cases in Southern California. He’s from a family of Republicans and Democrats and is running for Congress because the attack on the U.S. Capitol underscored why America needs a new generation of leaders to end toxic divisions that threaten our democracy and prevent us from solving problems together. For the past five years, Will served as an Assistant U.S. Attorney, where he helped prosecute some of the insurrectionists who attacked the US Capitol on January 6th.
Coming of age at a time when being gay was literally a crime in some states, Will and his partner Paolo know that government-sponsored discrimination has lasting effects on all Americans, our economy, and our national security. That has motivated Will to improve the lives of others who face discrimination. Will’s mother and father, a public defender and journalist, stressed the importance of justice and free speech at a young age. His parents taught him that although the system may not be perfect, every generation has a responsibility to improve it. With this lesson in mind, Will is running for Congress to serve the 41st district of California and bring justice and accountability back to Washington.
