These groups join key endorsements from Los Angeles Supervisor Gloria Molina, Lieutenant Governor (ret.) Cruz Bustamante and the Latino Democrats of Los Angeles and San Fernando Valley in support of Brad Sherman.

The MPI, the largest organization representing Salvadorans, wrote “Congressman Sherman, there is no question that your agenda combines practical experience with bold new ideas to get our economy back on track, and move the nation forward.” They go on to say “we admire your strong family values, your leadership, wisdom and your friendship to the Salvadoran community and Latinos as a whole.”

In addition to the endorsing organizations, the Coalition announced that National League of Latin American Citizens President Jaime Martinez had personally endorsed Representative Brad Sherman. Martinez, is also the founder and President of the Cesar E. Chavez Legacy and Educational Fund.
