Rep. Scott Peters to Run for Re-Election in the New CA-50
San Diego – Today, the Scott Peters for Congress campaign confirmed that Rep. Scott Peters (CA-52) will run for re-election in the newly drawn San Diego coastal district identified as California 50.
“As the region and nation fight to overcome the devastating health and economic impacts of COVID, the ability to continue to bring federal resources home is what we need to recover,” Peters said. “My growing seniority in Congress puts me in a position to deliver, as does my track record of being able to work with everyone to solve problems.”
“I’ll continue to fight for a strong, diverse economy where every person and family has a shot at opportunity, prosperity and security. I’ll continue to stand up for middle class families, for clean air and water, for our veterans and active-duty men and women, and for our children and grandchildren who are counting on us to save the planet from the perils of climate change,” he said.
Peters added that in 2022 he’ll continue to represent the people of California’s 52nd congressional district with the same energy and commitment he’s always brought to the job. He will also introduce himself to the people of the new California 50 who he’s not yet had the honor to represent; he hopes to earn their support.
Scott Peters is a Democrat who has served in the House of Representatives since 2013. He was the first Democrat to represent San Diego City Council District 1 and defeated a 12-year Republican incumbent in 2012 to turn San Diego’s congressional delegation to a democratic majority for the first time in County history. He is a member of the powerful House Energy & Commerce committee, Vice Chair for Policy of the New Democrat Coalition, which is the largest ideological caucus in the House, and he is a Vice Chair for the Western Region of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.
