Dave Min is running to represent California's 47th Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives. Elected in 2020, Dave Min has been an environmental champion in California’s state senate and has demonstrated incredible leadership on issues that are important to Orange County residents. In his first year in office, he authored eight bills (and co-authored several others) that became law, including bold and aggressive gun violence prevention, climate action, small business advocacy, domestic violence, and reproductive rights legislation. He also authored legislation to preserve and expand our open spaces and coastal waters to meet the “30 by 30” goals that leading scientists have said are necessary to ensure we prevent mass extinction.

A first-generation Korean-American, Dave is running for Congress to create a better California for the children of Orange County – one that reflects our core values of diversity, tolerance, and opportunity that drew his parents and millions of others like them to this country in search of a better life. He is committed to creating an economy and community that uplifts Orange County families. Min is endorsed by LCV Action Fund and NRDC Action Fund.
