Antonio Sabáto Jr Running for Congress in California

Antonio Sabáto Jr, a model & actor, is running as a Republican candidate for Congress in California’s 26th District.

Antonio is a huge supporter of President Trump. In fact, he even spoke at the RNC. Antonio has several Tweets showing his support for our President and on his website it says:

He has not been shy about his political views in the face of his Hollywood peers and is proud of his early support for President Donald J. Trump.

Also on Antonio’s website it states:

Most recently, he decided that like many of us he has had enough of professional politicians who phone it in for themselves instead of representing their constituents. He is now a Republican candidate for Congress in California’s 26th District and looks forward to helping secure the retirement of Julia Brownley who was recently named by a nonpartisan data firm as one of the least effective members of Congress.

Under issues on his site it says:

My campaign platform is simple… Member of Congress were meant to represent the needs of their districts above petty politics and self-interest. We need to get back to that. Over the years, our local residents, businesses, veterans and farmers have not received the representation that they deserve. Whether it is the 48,000 veterans that call our district home, or the multi-billion-dollar economic engine that is our local agriculture, our current representative consistently chooses politics over her district every time.

  • VETERANS

When the Oxnard VA was ranked as one of the worst in the country and Obama’s VA Director described the wait lines to receive healthcare as being akin to waiting in line for a ride at Disneyland, many members of Congress were so dismayed by his callous disregard for the fact that veterans were dying on those wait rolls, that they called for his immediate resignation.

  • Not our Congresswoman Julia Brownley. She dutifully towed the party line at a time when the Oxnard VA was caught shredding veteran’s medical records

 

  • AGRICULTURE

Our local citrus is the second largest crop grown locally, providing thousands of jobs in our region.  It is vital that we protect this industry from both economic and biological threats.

So when President Obama lifted the ban on international citrus imports that would significantly impact our local farms economically and bring what could be disastrous pestilence, what did Congresswoman Julia Brownley do?

If you think she forcefully rebuked the President of her own party you would again be mistaken.

 

  • DIPLOMACY

Our national security is a vital issue to all of us in the 26th district.  Not just because of our large local military presence but because the safety and security we enjoy was bravely fought for by so many local veterans.

So when the President was pushing the disastrous Iran Nuclear deal, that would send billions of dollars to the world’s leading sponsor of terrorism Iran, you would think our local Congresswoman would recognize that those funds we were sending would threaten our allies in the Middle East and us here at home.

Congresswoman Julia Brownley again, dutifully towed the party line and received over $30,000 in political contributions for it from groups like J-Street.

 

What does all of this mean?

When your representative puts politics in front of what is best for their district, you get lackluster results.

That is why it is no surprise that not only do so many lingering problems in our district still exist, but nonpartisan sources have rated our Congresswoman, Julia Brownley, as one of the least effective members of Congress.
