President Donald J. Trump endorses Vince Fong for Congress

Assemblyman Vince Fong’s Office, Bakersfield, CA- President Donald J. Trump today announced his endorsement of Assemblyman Vince Fong in the race for California’s 20th Congressional District. President Trump wrote on Truth Social:

“State Assemblyman Vince Fong is running in the Primary and Special Election for California’s 20th Congressional District. Vince was one of only 6 Republicans in the State Assembly to stand with me and reject the Second Impeachment Hoax. In Congress, Vince will work with me to Grow the Economy, Lower your Taxes, Cut Burdensome Regulations, Champion American Energy, and Protect and Defend the Second Amendment, which is under siege by the Radical Left. There are 11 candidates running in this “Jungle Primary” (including a wonderful man who recently withdrew), but now is the time to unite around Vince Fong and elect a true Republican to this seat. I am proud to join California’s Republican Congressional Delegation and give Vince Fong my Complete and Total Endorsement!”

In response to the endorsement, Fong stated, “I am honored to have President Trump’s support and endorsement in my campaign for Congress. I look forward to serving alongside President Trump and working with him to secure the border, protect our national security, and grow our economy. The Central Valley has had enough of the failures of the Biden administration. We are ready to once again have leaders in DC, like President Trump, that will fight for our interests and values.”

Fong was born and raised in Bakersfield, graduated from West High School, and went on to earn a bachelor’s degree from UCLA and a master’s from Princeton University. For nearly a decade, he served as the district director to Congressman Kevin McCarthy, providing constituent services and managing federal public policy issues for the region. For the past seven years, Fong has represented the Central Valley in the State Assembly, where he has been a leading conservative voice on issues like public safety, water, energy, and job creation.

Fong is running to succeed Congressman Kevin McCarthy in the 20th Congressional District, which includes parts of Kern, Tulare, Kings, and Fresno counties.
