That's in six-years time. Think about it, in 2023 the bulk of Latino millennial voters will be older than 24.
When Antonio “Tony” Cárdenas told BOLD PAC, a growing Democratic Political Action Committee dedicated to increasing the diversity of leadership in the House and Senate, that he would triple the $1 million in its coffers, he was met with laughter.
“You want to try it, do it. Go for it dude,” Cárdenas said. He ended up raising $6 million by 2016. Cárdenas, son of immigrant parents, began his political career in 1966 after leaving his engineering career. He was elected to represent California’s 39th Assembly District and won three times in a row with about 80% of the votes, becoming the first person of color to represent the district.
Cárdenas has had a significant role in shaping election races since his days in the California Assembly.
