CA-GOV: Top California Dem launches national attack on GOP over abortion [View all]

SACRAMENTO, California — A leading Democrat to succeed Gov. Gavin Newsom is launching a new Super PAC to help President Joe Biden and bolster her profile in California.

Lt. Gov. Eleni Kounalakis, a candidate for governor in 2026, told POLITICO that her new political organization, Californians for Choice, will mobilize voters in the neighboring swing states of Nevada and Arizona to boost Biden and work to defeat Donald Trump.

Along with turning out voters across the West who are concerned about abortion rights, Kounalakis’ PAC also will recruit Golden State volunteers to make calls, knock on doors and organize in several California House districts that are crucial for Democrats’ efforts to take back the chamber in November.

“I know that there is nothing more important for women’s freedom than the ability to control our bodies. And like so many Californians, so many Americans, I’ve been in absolute shock about the possibility of a Trump administration with a MAGA Republican Congress that issues a national abortion ban,” Kounalakis, a longtime supporter and close ally of Vice President Kamala Harris, said in an interview Tuesday.
