Dan Lungren has taken more than a million dollars from Wall Street interests and voted repeatedly to let the big banks off the hook. When it comes to women’s health care, Lungren has sided with the insurance industry — after receiving nearly $200,000 from them — rather than with you. And he also voted to privatize Medicare, which will line the insurance industry’s pockets. Adding insult to injury, Lungren wants to allow for unlimited political donations to candidates, which will just lead to even more corruption. We need to say No to Dan Lungren.
Friends of Democracy targeted 22,978 voters in the race between incumbent Representative Dan Lungren and challenger Ami Bera. Rep. Dan Lungren was defeated by a margin of 3,824 votes.
