For the past two years, the Republican-controlled House of Representatives has been advancing an agenda that favors the wealthy and the well-connected at the expense of hard-working American families. They’ve stood shoulder-to-shoulder with President Trump instead of standing up for the values this country was built on.
The midterms offer an opportunity to reject that path, and elect leaders who will actually fight for their constituents on the issues that matter most—leaders like Mike Levin.
Mike Levin is running for Congress to stand up for the hard-working families of the 49th District. Levin will build on his decade of experience in the clean energy industry to combat climate change and fight back against any efforts that undermine our health, safety, and economic security. At a time when our core values are being tested, Mike Levin will hold Washington accountable and reject cynical partisan politics that divide our country.
See how Mike Levin's stances on key issues compare to the Republican-Controlled House:
- Passed legislation that would have ripped health care away from 36,900 constituents in CA-49 and raised premiums.
- Passed a tax scam that hands the top 1% an average cut of $55,000, while hiking taxes on millions in the middle class. The law will add $1.9 trillion to our deficit, setting the stage for Social Security and Medicare cuts.
- Weakened the background check system and passed a bill that would force states with strong gun laws to comply with lax gun laws from other states.
- Voted to jeopardize our clean air and water, weaken air pollution standards, and remove protections that prevented companies from dumping mine waste into waterways.
- Failed to protect DREAMers, who contribute $99.9 million to the economy in CA-49 alone.
Will work to strengthen the Affordable Care Act to realize its goal of access to affordable, quality health care, and will defend Medicare and Medicaid.
Will advocate for policies that support job creation in Orange County’s industries, like biotechnology, information technology, and clean energy.
Is a champion for combating climate change and its impact on our economy, health, and security; and will push back against the administration’s efforts to undermine our global leadership on climate.
Supports common-sense solutions to reduce gun violence, including strengthening the background check system, banning weapons of war, and funding gun violence research.
Will work across the aisle on comprehensive, bipartisan reforms to fix our broken immigration system and support a path to citizenship for law-abiding undocumented immigrants.
Has promised to stand up for women’s health issues, including access to contraception and reproductive rights.
Will fight for campaign finance reform to reduce the outsized influence that big money and corporate lobbyists have on our politics.
We can help elect Mike Levin in November, but it won’t happen on its own.
It’ll take people like you stepping up to ensure your neighbors, family, and friends understand what’s at stake in this election, make a plan to vote, and join this fight.

“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.”
