Council for a Livable World endorsed Rep. Cisneros in 2018 after he survived a 17-candidate primary to become the Democratic nominee and won the general election against Young Kim (R) – 51.6% to 48.8%. Young Kim is running again in 2020 in a district that is 34% Latino and 29% Asian.
Before Congress, Cisneros served in the Navy for ten years, reaching the rank of Lt. Commander.
He serves on the House Armed Services and House Veterans’ Affairs committees, and has voted against the low-yield nuclear weapon in the House Armed Services Committee and the House floor.
His continued voice on the Armed Services Committee is critical to our work and we are proud to endorse him in 2020.
