Washington – Today Rep. Mike Thompson (CA-05) was sworn in to serve as the Member of Congress representing California’s Fifth Congressional District and celebrated the historic majority’s priorities for the coming session.
“Across our district and our nation, the people sent a message at the ballot box in November – they wanted a new Congress that would actually work for them. Today, the new, historic Democratic majority delivered. I am honored to stand with the most diverse group of colleagues ever and honored that we are taking a stand to repair our democracy and bring integrity back to Congress.
“Make no mistake – this Congress will continue to make history. From working to prevent gun violence to strengthening protections for people with pre-existing conditions, we will take action the American people have been demanding.”
