Rep. Jimmy Gomez (D-34) is backing en­vir­on­ment­al at­tor­ney Mike Lev­in’s (D) bid to un­seat Rep. Dar­rell Issa (R) over 2016 chal­lenger Doug Ap­pleg­ate (D), citing Levin’s “proven track record of effective progressive leadership.” Rep. Adam Schiff (D-28) has also endorsed Levin, while Applegate has garnered endorsemetns from some progressive groups and labor unions. (Los Angeles Times)

Issa, who had one of the closest races of 2016 when Applegate challenged him, is a top Democratic target this cycle.
