No Dem Left Behind Endorses Bruno Amato for U.S. Congress
by Tianah Autumn Spear
WASHINGTON, DC — This week, No Dem Left Behind PAC announced it’s endorsement of Bruno Amato for U.S. Congress. Amato is the Democratic candidate with the best chance of unseating Kevin McCarthy as Representative for California’s 23rd Congressional District.
Bruno joined the military at the age of 17 to follow in the footsteps of his father and serve his country. He is no stranger to hard work as a veteran. He understands what it means to build the American dream from the ground up as the son of Italian immigrants. Following his Navy service, Amato joined the Ironworkers’ Union, where he saw firsthand the value of a community united in service. These experiences instilled values in Bruno, which he intends to uphold if elected to Congress.
“I see a lot of the same mindset I had when I ran for Congress when I listen to Bruno. Doesn’t pull any punches and isn’t afraid to tell the truth. He’s a dependable leader, a veteran, and an important individual the country needs.” says No Dem Left Behind national spokesperson and former West Virginia state senator, Richard Ojeda.
Kevin McCarthy and the GOP have made their main objective painfully obvious: to undermine any and all progress made under the Biden administration. They are willing to spread lies and conspiracies, even at the expense of their constituents. It’s time for a Democratic candidate to step in and fight for the working people. Bruno is a veteran, a patriot, and exactly the right candidate to take on McCarthy in 2022.
“The same passion and sense of duty that caused President Biden to run for the highest office in the land motivates Bruno Almato to challenge Kevin McCarthy. It is that same passion that will ensure Bruno is successful in unseating the GOP minority leader and give the entire Republican establishment a crushing loss.” Hassan Martini Executive Director No Dem Left Behind
In Amato’s own words, “Unlike my opponent, I’m not a career politician, and frankly, I never had any ambition to become one. But I can’t stand aside as my own representative continues to disgrace the country my parents fought so hard to get to, and that my father and I served to protect.”
