DAGA Congratulates California AG Bonta for Primary Win, Enthusiastically Supports His 2022 Campaign
June 8, 2022
Washington, DC — The Democratic Attorneys General Association (DAGA) congratulates California Attorney General Rob Bonta on his primary win and his advancement to the general election this November. Since Governor Gavin Newsom announced that he would be appointing Bonta as Attorney General of California to succeed Xavier Becerra last year, AG Bonta has had DAGA’s full support from day one. AG Bonta’s confirmation made history as the first Filipino American to serve as Attorney General in the state.
Statement from Sean Rankin, President, Democratic Attorneys General Association:
“Since his confirmation last year, AG Bonta has been a champion for the people of California, and we congratulate him on his primary win tonight. He has dedicated his career to holding those who break the law — especially those in positions of power — accountable, first, as a California state legislator, and now, as the California Attorney General. During his time in office, Attorney General Bonta has improved the lives of all Californians by enforcing the state’s common sense gun safety laws, safeguarding access to reproductive health care, and fighting for environmental justice. And he’s just getting started. We look forward to seeing what more he will do for the people of California when elected this November.”
