Encinitas, CA — The California Democratic Legislative Women’s Caucusannounced their endorsement of Democrat Tasha Boerner Horvath in her campaign for State Assembly District 76. The primary for the 76th Assembly District seat will occur in June of 2018. The seat is currently held by Republican Assemblymember Rocky Chavez.    
"When women are elected to state legislative offices, the issues that are elevated change,” said Assemblymember Cristina Garcia, Chair of the California Democratic Legislative Women’s Caucus. “We think Tasha Boerner Horvath can join our collective voice and further magnify the work we are doing for women and families in our golden state.” 
The Democratic Legislative Women’s Caucus represents and advocates on behalf of the diverse interests of women, children, and families throughout California. It seeks to increase participation and representation of women in state government. In California, women make up only 22 percent of the legislature. Its members include Senators Connie Leyva, Cathleen Galgiani, Hannah-Beth Jackson, Holly Mitchell, Nancy Skinner, and Toni Atkins, and Assemblymembers Cristina Garcia, Cecilia Aguiar-Curry, Autumn Burke, Anna Caballero, Sabrina Cervantes, Susan Eggman, Laura Friedman, Lorena Gonzalez-Fletcher, Jacqui Irwin, Monique Limón, Sharon Quirk-Silva, Eloise Gómez Reyes, Blanca Rubio, and Shirley Weber.
