State senators endorse Jasmeet Bains for Assembly


State Senators Melissa Hurtado, D-Sanger, and Richard Pan, D-Sacramento, have endorsed Bakersfield Doctor Jasmeet Bains for Assembly District 32.

Bains is running as a Democrat to succeed Assemblyman Rudy Salas, D-Bakersfield, on a healthcare-focused platform.

“With COVID still impacting our communities and small businesses, with so much at stake for the future of water and food security in our Valley, it is critical that we have leaders who will fight for our Valley,” Hurtado said in a statement.

Her colleague, Pan, endorsed Bains along a similar line of reasoning.

“As a family doctor who served on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic, she understands the importance of access to quality healthcare and ensuring everyone has access to preventive care and affordable lifesaving treatments,” he said in a statement.

In a statement of her own, Bains said she appreciated the support of the two state senators.

“In the Assembly, I look forward to championing the kinds of policies that will make a difference in the health and well-being of every Californian, ensuring that everyone has the healthcare they deserve and that our families can thrive,” she added.
