(Simi Valley, CA) – Lee Rogers announced today that he has picked up yet another labor endorsement as momentum continues to grow for his campaign. The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local 11 will back Rogers in the increasingly competitive race for California’s 25th Congressional District.

 “We are endorsing Dr. Lee Rogers because we know he will be a true leader for working families in Washington,” said IBEW Local 11 Assistant Business Manager Kevin Norton. “The dysfunction in Congress has reached new heights. They shut down the government and put the global economy in jeopardy. This isn’t fair to the working men and women of this country.”

 Added Norton, “Lee Rogers doesn’t stand for political games. He will do what is right for the middle class, his constituents, and our nation as Congressman.”

 IBEW Local 11 is the fourth labor union to endorse Rogers in a string of endorsements coming since late September. The Rogers campaign’s success has come from strong fundraising figures and polling. In the third fundraising quarter of 2013, Rogers outraised incumbent Buck McKeon, a committee chairman, $227,000 to $208,000. Earlier this month an independent poll found that McKeon losing to a Democratic challenger 44% to 46%.

 Dr. Lee Rogers is a nationally-renowned doctor specializing in podiatry at Valley Presbyterian Hospital in Van Nuys, where he co-directs the Amputation Prevention Center. Lee and his wife, Susan, live in Simi Valley where they are raising their two daughters, Emma and Lily.
