ROCKLIN, CA – – Today, Republican Kevin Kiley received two key endorsements in his campaign for Congress in the new California 3rd District, former Congressman John Doolittle and former Congressman Doug Ose. While district numbers have changed, both Doolittle and Ose have represented large portions of the new CA03 in the past and retain strong local followings.
“I am very grateful to have the support of John Doolittle and Doug Ose,” said Kiley. “They know this district and its voters and will be tremendous assets to me in this campaign. Both John and Doug join me in understanding the urgency of the election in 2022. Our constitutional and limited government and our personal freedoms are under attack in Washington D.C. I want to be part of a new majority in the House that will turn back the tide and restore our freedoms.”
As a State Assemblyman, Kevin Kiley has led the opposition to Governor Gavin Newsom’s draconian covid mandates, high taxes and reckless spending that has damaged the economy and harmed families.
“I have said before that California is a textbook example of the damage runaway government can do,” said Kiley, “We cannot allow Nancy Pelosi and the Joe Biden administration to make the rest of the country like California.”
Kevin Kiley was elected to the California State Assembly in 2016 and has twice been reelected by substantial margins. In the 2020 election, he received more votes than any Republican in California history.
In five years in the Legislature, Kevin has authored groundbreaking new laws on freedom of speech, artificial intelligence, privacy, criminal justice reform, and protections for sexual assault victims, along with introducing the most significant school choice legislation in recent years. For his work advancing economic freedom, in 2020 he was named the national Legislator of the Year by the Association of Independent Workers. Each year in the Legislature, Kevin has declined the per diem allowance, giving up $40,000 in income annually. He also declined a pay raise granted to the Governor and Legislature in 2021. In November of 2020, Kevin and fellow legislator James Gallagher made use of their legal training by winning a trial against Governor Newsom for violating the separation of powers. Kevin holds a bachelor’s degree from Harvard, a law degree from Yale, and a master’s from Loyola Marymount.
