Redistricting: Statement from Norman Solomon

With the California Citizens Redistricting Commission's approval of final maps today, Democratic congressional candidate Norman Solomon is available to speak with journalists about California's new North Coast congressional district (CD-2) spanning north of the Golden Gate Bridge to the Oregon border.

Below is a brief statement from Solomon, an independent progressive Democrat:

"I'm excited to be running for Congress in California's newly formed North Coast district -- a diverse, stunningly beautiful region with a long history of political independence and progressive values. Let's hit the ground running and seize this chance to work together for our communities."
