Los Angeles, CA – Former US Assistant Attorney General and candidate for California Attorney General, Nathan Hochman, has raised over $800,000 in his campaign to unseat Newsom appointee Rob Bonta in 2022.
“I am so grateful for the tremendous support our campaign has received in the months since we launched this campaign.” remarked Nathan. “While Rob Bonta continues to accept contributions from the same special interests who gave us failed DA’s like George Gascón and Chesa Boudin, our campaign is powered by the generosity of concerned Californians from across our state.”
In mid-year financial disclosures, Nathan will report $811,944.50 in total contributions with $680,004.05 cash on hand.
After graduating from Brown University and Stanford Law School, Nathan clerked for a US District Court Judge in Los Angeles before becoming an Assistant US Attorney for the Central District of California. In 2008, Nathan was appointed by President George W. Bush and confirmed by the US Senate as US Assistant Attorney General overseeing the Department of Justice’s Tax Division. After leaving DOJ, Nathan has had a successful career as a defense attorney and partner in two international law firms. Nathan served as a member and President of the Los Angeles City Ethics Commission from 2011 to 2016 and serves on numerous boards, including those governing the Cedar Sinai Medical Center and American Jewish University.
Nathan launched his campaign for Attorney General at the end of April. Since then, he has secured the endorsement of a growing number of prosecutors, elected officials, and community leaders. He has made addressing fentanyl and the opioid epidemic a key issue of his campaign.
