We are less than two weeks away from primaries in some of the most competitive races of 2024—and they’re all happening in California. 

The Golden State holds some of the best opportunities this year to preserve women’s representation and win back the House, by making sure women win in these four crucial Congressional primaries and three state legislative races.

Rep. Katie Porter leads the slate. Check out the rest of the candidates and give $5 or more to each of them.

A little more about each race: 

US Senate, Katie Porter: Katie is the only Democrat whose current polling shows her within reach of second place. With fellow Democrat Adam Schiff and Republican Steve Garvey polling slightly ahead, women are at risk of being shut out in the state that was the first to put two women in the US Senate. Plus, a competitive race between Adam and Katie in November will have coattail effects House candidates desperately need. 

US House-16, Julie Lythcott-Haims: The Palo Alto City Councilor is the only woman running in this safe district held by retiring Rep. Anna Eshoo. 

US House-30, Laura Friedman: This is Adam Schiff’s seat, and one of the few nationwide where we can replace a man with a woman. State Assemblywoman Laura is winning the endorsement race but is lagging in fundraising. 

US House-47, Joanna Weiss: This is Katie Porter’s seat, a general election swing district that we need to hold for Democrats and women. Attorney Joanna has been gaining since state Sen. Dave Min’s DUI arrest, but he is still favored and was, bizarrely, endorsed by the LA Times

CA Senate-25, Sasha Renée Pérez: There is no shortage of women in this primary, but Alhambra’s vice mayor is winning the endorsement game, and best positioned to win this safe D seat currently held by a man. 

CA Assembly-2, Ariel Kelley: The Healdsburg mayor is the leading woman in this crowded primary to, again, replace a man in a safe D district. 

CA Assembly-13, Rhodesia Ransom: The former Tracy city councilor is locked in a primary battle with Edith Villapudua, the wife of the former incumbent who declined to run. Ideally, we’d put a Black woman in this seat. 

All three California state legislative candidates are endorsed by our partner Fund Her, an organization working to achieve gender parity in California’s legislature by 2028.

Please make sure these women are fully funded before the March 5 primary. Give now to our 2024 Super Tuesday: California slate.
