The Culver City Democratic Club held a series of candidate forums online prior to the March meeting where endorsements were voted on. Both the candidates for State Senate and the candidates for Congress dialed in for more than an hour of questions and reflections on two separate Zoom calls earlier. While no candidate for Congress received the required 60%, the slate below met the standard for endorsement. Only members of the club voted at the meeting, and the results followed along expected lines.
The following candidates received over 60% of the votes cast by Club members, earning our endorsement for the June 7, 2022 primary election.
US Senate: Alex Padilla
