A congressional hopeful from California told Big League Politics that he is optimistic about his groundswell of support as he looks to unseat a longtime congresswoman in November.

“Every day I grow more confident,” said Omar Navarro, a 28-year-old political outsider from Inglewood.

Navarro is running against Rep. Maxine M. Waters (D.-Calif.) in California’s 43rd congressional district. Waters has been a congresswoman since 1991.

“If Trump can do it, I can do it,” Navarro said.

“Not only did Maxine Waters acknowledge my candidacy a whole year before the election, she called for my investigation in December, which shows that she feels threatened by me,” said Navarro.

Navarro said that Waters called for a forgery investigation into a document that he shared on Twitter, which he says he did not write, but only shared.

While recognizing that Waters has something of an advantage being so well-established, Navarro said that his campaign has raised $200,000, and has a growing group of volunteers and supporters.

He is facing three primary opponents, all of whom have declared candidacy with less than $10,000 to spend.

The Rebuilding America Now PAC, which was instrumental in the 2016 Trump campaign, has also pledged its support for Navarro.

“When you run for Congress, you are not just representing your district, you are representing all Americans,” he said.

Navarro said that his opponent is unhinged and that her policies are not beneficial to the public at large.

On that note, Navarro said that he is wary of giving citizenship to all of the estimated 800,000 Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients, which Congress is expected to decide on as part of the budget deal before the Jan. 19 deadline.

His opponent has publicly stated her support citizenship of all DACA recipients.

Navarro said that he is not in favor of mass deportation of DACA recipients, but rather considering them individually for citizenship based on how they have assimilated into American society, and after they have gone through the immigration process as legal immigrants would.

“We are not going to give them the right to vote after coming here through illegal means and not learning what it means to be an American.”

House Republicans Hoping to Get Americans Back to Work By End of April

It’s a aspiration, not a plan.

Published

House Republicans are considering plans that would help Americans get back to work by the end of the month. Kevin Brady of Texas told reporters on a conference call that the caucus is preparing preliminary plans that phase the workforce back in at the end of April.

Our focus is on locking down the virus while we’re taking the steps now to prepare to reopen the economy by the end of the month if the virus permits.”

Brady was careful to qualify that there’s no guarantee the public health situation in the United States would allow such a development.

“I think we should all expect the jobs, the unemployment in the GDP numbers to feel brutal over the short term. It’s because they are. This economy is taking hits like we’ve not seen in most of our lifetimes. But it is just a short-term hit.

Initial social distancing guidelines set forth by the White House in conjunction with the CDC were extended from two weeks to April 30th earlier in the week, suggesting the executive branch may be cautiously looking towards the end of April to begin phasing out the unprecedented disruptions to everyday American life.

It is worth noting that an early cease to social distancing and commonsense measures to deter the spread of the Chinese coronavirus could prove to be even more harmful than the negative impacts to the economy since the beginning of the virus-related recession. This can’t be rushed. But the consequences of the economic damage are real, and all Americans should look to get everyday economic life up and running against as soon as possible.
