Barbara Boxer
Former U.S. Senator

I’m thrilled to announce my support for Lisa Middleton’s campaign for Senate District 28.  A fearless fighter for the people she represents, Lisa is a compassionate, principled and savvy leader who will fight for those most in need in Sacramento while bringing people and ideas to the table to solve big problems. California needs Lisa’s forward-thinking ideas, compassion, grit and determination in the State Senate.  I’m proud to offer her my enthusiastic endorsement.

We need Lisa Middleton's proven leadership fighting for California's 28th District in the State Senate. Whether it's serving as a champion for working families, confronting our climate crisis, helping small businesses grow, broadening our middle-class economy, making college more affordable, improving transportation networks, or enhancing public safety -- I know that Lisa Middleton will continue to deliver for her constituents, and all Californians. I am very proud to endorse Lisa Middleton’s historic candidacy for State Senate.

I’m proud to support Lisa Middleton’s historic race for State Senate. Lisa has a deep understanding of the wide variety of issues Californians face — lack of affordable housing, access to quality education, creation of good-paying jobs, and ability to retire with dignity — through her lived experiences and service to her community as a city councilmember. I know Lisa will be a relentless fighter for working families and a champion for equality in the State Legislature. I am pleased to endorse her.

Our state’s capitol needs leaders like Lisa — let’s send her to Sacramento!

I am proud to endorse my friend Lisa Middleton for State Senate because she is the best person to represent the 28th District. I know that in the State Legislature, Lisa will always have the back of hard-working families throughout our communities and California, working to enact critical immigrant rights laws, increase access to affordable healthcare, combat our climate crisis, protect workers' rights, and advocate for full, lived equality and the dignity of all people. I look forward to helping her get elected.

Lisa Middleton is an accomplished leader who has made her region more inclusive, just and equitable. That’s why Equality California is thrilled to announce our early support for Lisa’s campaign for Senate. The 28th District needs Lisa’s courage, innovative thinking and unique ability to build coalitions in Sacramento, where she will be a trailblazing champion for full, lived equality while delivering critical resources to her community. We’re with Lisa 100 percent and look forward to helping her make history once again as California’s first transgender state legislator.

A victory for Lisa will shatter a long-standing political barrier in California and will be a milestone moment for the state and the country. Yet Lisa is not running for state senate to be a trailblazer. She is a passionate public servant who brings solutions-oriented optimism to challenges big and small – from filling potholes to healthcare access to climate change. Her constituents’ quality of life will always be the priority, but Lisa’s election will also inspire a new generation of trans leaders to follow in her footsteps.

The California Legislative LGBTQ Caucus is thrilled to endorse Lisa Middleton’s candidacy for State Senate because we need more bold, innovative LGBTQ+ leaders who are ready to take on California's toughest issues and deliver for our communities. Throughout her career, Lisa has been a trailblazing champion for the LGBTQ community as well as a dedicated public servant and activist working to uplift her city, particularly on the Palm Springs City Council. Additionally, the California Legislature should reflect our state’s dynamic population, and it’s far past time that transgender Californians were represented in Sacramento. We know that Lisa will be a pioneering, relentless advocate for the 28th District and all Californians, working tirelessly to make the state more inclusive, fair, and just. We’re with her 100% and look forward to helping Lisa get elected.
