Former Torrance Mayor Dee Hardison
"Debra is the tough, independent and smart leader that we need in Congress who has always fought for Torrance and the South Bay, I wholeheartedly support her candidacy. She is the most qualified candidate running and I urge the residents of Torrance to join me in voting for Debra Bowen on May 17."

Torrance Police Officers Association Board of Directors member Chuong Vo
"Debra has stood shoulder-to-shoulder with law enforcement and today we stand with her. When it comes to public safety, Debra is best prepared to fight for what we need to protect the public."

Al Sattler, Political Chair for the Palos Verdes-South Bay Regional Group of the Sierra Club
"After careful review and meeting with the candidates, it is without a doubt that Debra Bowen stands out on environmental protection issues more than any other candidate in this election. With Debra, we know we will have a strong advocate for the environment in Congress who will not back down from oil and gas special interests and will stand up for our clean air and water."

Southwest Regional Council of Carpenters Executive Secretary of the Regional Council Mike McCarron
"We support Debra Bowen for Congress because she has a solid record of fighting for policies that help workers and strengthens the middle class. We support her candidacy because she has the courage to stand up for what is right and we urge others to join us in supporting for Debra Bowen for Congress."

California League of Conservation Voters
"At a time when Congress is not only lacking environmental leadership but when the majority has become downright hostile towards any attempt to protect open spaces, improve public health, and protect clean air and water, Bowen will be a needed breath of fresh air in Washington."

Deborah Burger, Co-President of the California Nurses Association and National Nurses United
"Debra is a leader for high quality health care that is accessible for all. Patients can count on Debra Bowen to put the health care needs of our community ahead of the profit motives of the insurance industry.”

Equality California Interim Executive Director Jim Carroll
“Equality California PAC only endorses candidates who support full equality for the entire lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community, and Debra Bowen has a long track record of standing with our community when we’ve needed her most. We are confident that she will remain a vocal champion for equality in Congress and a committed leader that all Californians can count on.”

Congresswoman Judy Chu
"You know with Debra Bowen in this seat, you will have someone who will stand up to Wall Street. You know that she understands our coastline is a national treasure and she will do as much as she can to defend it. You know that she understands the value of education, and that we have to concentrate like a laser to make sure we get jobs in this district. And you know as Republicans attack a woman's right to chose, Debra will be there to stand up for us."

Laura Chick
"Debra Bowen knows what it takes to stand up to bureaucracy and the powerful special interests – and that kind of integrity and independence is exactly what we need in Congress."

Democracy for America
"Debra has been an outstanding Secretary of State and she'll make an outstanding Congresswoman for California's 36th District."

Blue America
"With expertise in…election reform and government transparency, along with her dedication to green energy, she is perfectly positioned to be a leader for us, for our time."
