JOSE HERNANDEZ FOR CONGRESS RAISES OVER $310,000 IN FIRST QUARTER

JOSE HERNANDEZ RAISES OVER $310,000 IN FIRST QUARTER

Modesto, CA – This morning the Jose Hernandez for Congress campaign announced that they have raised over $310,000 in the first quarter of 2012. This is a strong upswing from the amount the campaign raised in the fourth quarter of 2011. The $310,000 the campaign received was from more than 2,800 contributions.

This announcement comes on the heels of the campaign receiving the endorsement of the Latino Community Roundtable following their forum on April 11th.

“I’m thankful for the amount of support that my campaign has received over the last three months,” said Jose Hernandez, candidate for Congress in California’s 10th congressional district. “These strong numbers show that Californians believe that Jeff Denham is part of the problem in Washington and won’t stand with his plans to destroy Medicare as we know it and allow for the privatization of Social Security.”

Patty Hughes: Congressional Candidate Jose Hernandez Wins in Court! “Astronaut” Ballot Designation Stands!

Congressional Candidate "Astronaut" Jose Hernandez has won the right to use "astronaut/scientist/engineer" as his ballot designation in his run for Congressional District 10, in the heart of California's Central Valley.

JOSE HERNANDEZ STATEMENT ON COURT VICTORY
Statement from Congressional Candidate Jose Hernandez in response to his victory in court defending a lawsuit challenging the validity of his stated occupation of Astronaut/Scientist/Engineer on the California ballot:
“I was never in doubt that I would be able to use Astronaut on my ballot.  From the age of nine it was a dream for me to go into Space and I look forward to trying to help others from the Central Valley reach for their dreams as well.  I am glad that common sense prevailed and we were able to defeat this lawsuit and get back to talking about real issues.”
