“I’m excited to endorse Josh Newman for State Senate because he has spent his career standing up for what is right. Throughout his career, Josh has been a strong voice for everyday Californians, fighting for greater access to affordable healthcare, the creation of good middle-class jobs, greater investments in local public schools, a green energy future, and increased affordable housing. We need Josh’s common-sense approach in Sacramento helping our state recover from the COVID-19 crisis, and I look forward to helping him get elected.”


Gil Cisneros

United States Representative, CD-39

“As a veteran myself, I’m proud to support my fellow veteran Josh Newman in his campaign for State Senate. Josh has always been a champion for veterans, founding ArmedForce2Workforce to help other vets find good-paying jobs upon returning home following their own military service. Josh brought common sense and bipartisanship to Sacramento during his time in the State Senate – prioritizing service, accountability, and community. I know that in the State Senate he will be just the partner we need to bring much-needed resources to the communities that we both represent. I’m proud to endorse my friend Josh Newman for State Senate.”

Alex Padilla

I look forward to helping him get elected.”


Betty Yee

“As a veteran, businessman, and former Senator, Josh Newman has always put people first — whether it’s country, returning veterans, or the people of the 29th Senate District. We need him back in the State Senate to lead in improving local schools, making higher education more affordable, tackling climate change, and increasing health care access. I’m pleased to endorse Josh Newman for State Senate because he is the best choice to deliver results for the 29th District.”

Fiona Ma

“Josh Newman is a fearless fighter for the people he represents. We need him back in the State Senate, working to advance a common-sense agenda that lifts up all working families – from helping to grow our middle-class economy to protecting taxpayers to combatting climate change and more. I’m excited to support Josh for State Senate.”

John Chiang

California State Treasurer (Ret.)

“I am thrilled to endorse Josh Newman’s rematch bid for State Senate. In these challenging times, with so much at stake, it’s more critical now than ever that our elected officials bring integrity and decency to the California State Legislature. Josh is a compassionate, principled and savvy leader who will fight for those most in need while bringing people and ideas to the table to solve big problems. In Sacramento, Josh will continue the progress he made on behalf of working- and middle-class Californians, and I’m proud to endorse him.”

Toni Atkins

California State Senate president pro tempore

“Josh Newman’s fearless promotion of California values, coupled with his unique ability to bring people together to solve problems, makes Josh the ideal person for the job.  Josh will continue the work he started in 2016 as a champion of veterans, working families, environmental protection and immigrant communities, as well as a policy leader in ensuring greater access to affordable healthcare.  I’m thrilled to endorse him for State Senate.”

Anthony Rendon

speaker of the california state Assembly

“From his service in the U.S. Army to his work helping veterans land good jobs, to his time in the State Senate, Josh Newman has shown tremendous courage, compassion, and decisive leadership throughout his career.  He’s always put people first – and that’s precisely what he’ll do in the State Senate.  I am proud to endorse Josh Newman for State Senate because we need his forward-thinking vision as well as his effectiveness fighting on behalf of the people of the 29th District.”
