Run for Something Endorses Alex Mohajer for CA State Senate

December 15, 2023

38-year-old Irvine native, LGBTQ+ civic leader, and Democrat Alex Mohajer is proud to receive the endorsement of Run for Something (RFS), the groundbreaking organization that recruits and supports strong voices in the next generation of progressive leadership.

“I am honored to earn this endorsement and join the ranks of some truly remarkable candidates and elected officials that represent the diverse, progressive coalition that makes up the next generation of elected leaders,” said Mohajer. “We are going to win this seat and prove that Orange County is ready for the next generation to take the wheel.”

RFS co-founder Ross Morales Rocketto shared, “2024 will be the year in which our democracy will be on the ballot. As we look ahead to 2024, Run for Something is proud to stand with this latest class of progressive trailblazers. They will be instrumental in defending our democracy, creating change for their communities and building a robust Democratic foundation for the future.”

Amanda Litman and Ross Morales Rocketto launched RFS in 2017 with a simple premise: help young diverse progressives to run for down-ballot races to build a progressive bench for the future. RFS aims to lower the barriers to entry for talented, passionate young people by helping them with seeding money, organization building, and access to the trainings needed to be successful.

Mohajer has centered his campaign on reforms to the Democratic Party as well as affordable housing, climate change, health care, mental health, drug and alcohol rehabilitation, and economic policies that lift up working-class families. He is also centering public safety and the need to solve crime at its root by tackling income inequality and lack of access to education, healthcare, and housing.

The campaign, which launched in March of this year in an effort to succeed outgoing Senator Dave Min, has been building momentum and galvanizing voters ahead of the March 5th, 2024 Presidential Primary election. He has earned support from community groups, college students, and Democratic clubs across the County. Among the recent endorsements are:

  • Sunrise Movement
  • Progressive Democrats of America
  • OC Action
  • Chispa
  • College Democrats of Cal State Fullerton
  • Southern California Armenian Democrats
  • CA Democratic Renters Council
  • Iranian American Democrats of California
  • Safer California
  • Stonewall Democrats

The campaign recently won straw polls at Irvine Democratic Club and Laguna Woods Democratic Club, the largest Democratic club in Orange County.
