FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
August 5, 2021
Los Angeles, CA – Congressman Darrell Issa, the representative of California’s 50th Congressional District and a leader in the California Republican Party, has announced his support for former US Assistant Attorney General and candidate for California Attorney General, Nathan Hochman, in the race to unseat Newsom appointee Rob Bonta in 2022.
In announcing his endorsement, Congressman Issa remarked: “Nathan Hochman will put an end to the failed policies of the past that have put the needs of criminals above California families. He has spent his career fighting for victims and will make a great Attorney General.”
In response to Congressman Issa’s endorsement, Hochman stated: “I am so appreciative of the support I have received from across California, including from Congressman Issa. Together, we are building a campaign that will be able to replace Rob Bonta and restore public safety to California.”
Born and raised in Los Angeles, Nathan graduated from Brown University and earned his law degree from Stanford Law School. After finishing 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 launched his campaign for Attorney General at the end of April and has since raised nearly a million dollars—establishing himself as a frontrunner in the race to challenge Gavin Newsom appointed Attorney General Rob Bonta in the 2022 election. Congressman Issa joins a long and growing list of elected officials, prosecutors, and community leaders supporting Nathan’s campaign.
