California's 45th District


Rep. Mimi Walters’ record does not reflect the values of her constituents. Instead of standing up for the people who sent her to Washington, she has advanced some of the most damaging pieces of the Trump administration’s agenda—voting in lock-step with their harmful policies 99% of the time. Walters supports dangerous climate and environmental policies that would harm the health of the ocean and the local economy, has voted for legislation that hurts thousands of residents in her own district, and passed laws that put wealthy corporations before California communities.  

The midterms offer an opportunity for CA-45 voters to elect a leader who will actually fight for their constituents on the issues that matter most—a leader like Katie Porter.

Katie Porter is a consumer protection attorney who has spent decades taking on powerful institutions and Wall Street banks that have raked in profits at the expense of hard-working Americans. She’s running for Congress to continue her lifelong fight to protect consumers and stand up for California families. With President Trump and Mimi Walters advancing an agenda that caters to billionaires and corporate interests, that task has never been more important.

CA-45 in the News


“President Donald Trump’s agenda hasn’t been kind to blue states. And it’s been particularly rough on California [...] after months spent trying to repeal Obamacare, ceding the immigration debate to hardliners, and passing a tax bill that disadvantages more high-tax states, [California’s 14 Republican members of the House]  have a lot to defend.”



Republican U.S. Rep. Mimi Walters is facing criticism over the GOP tax overhaul bill that she voted for last month. The bill might increase taxes for many of her constituents, rather than lower them.
