Vice President Biden Throws Support Behind Aguilar on Two-Year Anniversary of Inland Empire Rally
Praises Congressman Aguilar for being a "champion" for middle class families
(San Bernardino, CA) - Exactly two years to the day following his enthusiastic 2014 endorsement of Pete Aguilar in front of a raucous crowd at the Colton High School gymnasium, today Vice President Joe Biden affirmed his support for Aguilar's re-election campaign. He released the following statement:
"I'm proud to support Pete Aguilar because he understands firsthand what Inland Empire middle class families are going through, and how too many Americans are working hard but still not getting ahead. Pete Aguilar has been their champion in Congress, and has helped see the families of San Bernadino through one of the darkest times in our nation's history. Pete Aguilar is fighting every day for an economy that works for everyone, and for our seniors, students, and veterans, and I know he will continue that fight in Congress."
Reacting to the endorsement, Congressman Aguilar stated, "I am honored to have the support of Vice President Biden, my friend and an incredible public servant. He and I both understand that for too many families, the American Dream is still out of reach. As a fourth generation San Bernardino County resident, I know the struggles families throughout our community are facing. I will continue fighting on their behalf in Congress by standing up for students, small businesses, seniors and veterans."
Pete Aguilar represents California’s 31st congressional district. He is a strong advocate for economic growth and fairness in the Inland Empire and a leader who reaches across party lines to deliver results for San Bernardino County’s middle class.
