Katie Porter

House - Challenger

Katie Porter is running in California’s 45th congressional district, currently represented by Republican Rep. Mimi Walters. Katie is a consumer protection attorney, and she has spent nearly twenty years fighting powerful interests and Wall Street banks on behalf of consumers and families. In 2012, then California Attorney General Kamala Harris appointed Katie to be California’s watchdog against the banks. She is currently a tenured professor at the University of California Irvine Law School. In the district’s six-way primary, Porter won 20% of the vote to secure a spot on the November ballot.

Katie supports a two-state solution, creating a safe and secure Israeli state living alongside a Palestinian state. She views the two-state solution as the clearest path to an enduring peace, offering both Israel and the Palestinian people lasting stability. If elected to Congress, she is also committed to ensuring that the terms of the Iran nuclear agreement are fully implemented and that the deal is maintained in the face of attempts to undermine its effectiveness.
