Congressman Ken Calvert Endorses Nathan Hochman for Attorney General
August 18, 2021

Los Angeles, CA – Congressman Ken Calvert, who represents parts of Riverside County in Congress, has announced his support for former US Assistant Attorney General and candidate for California Attorney General, Nathan Hochman, as he runs to succeed Newsom appointee Rob Bonta in 2022.

In announcing his endorsement, Congressman Calvert stated: “I support Nathan Hochman because he is the only candidate for Attorney General with the experience and competence needed to fix our state’s public safety issues. I am confident that as Attorney General, Nathan will ensure our communities remain safe and secure.”

In response to the news, Hochman stated “I am thrilled that Congressman Calvert is joining our team and supporting my campaign. Across California, families are feeling the unfortunate consequences of decades of mismanagement surrounding crime and justice in this state. Californians are ready for change and as a result, our campaign continues to grow every day.”

Nathan Hochman is an experienced prosecutor, lawyer, and civic leader. After graduating from Brown University and earning his law degree from Stanford Law School, Hochman clerked for a US District Court Judge in Los Angeles before becoming an Assistant US Attorney for the Central District of California. As a prosecutor, Hochman brought justice to drug lords, corrupt government officials, tax evaders, and violent gang members. In 2008, Hochman 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. Nathan has served his community on numerous charitable boards and as a member and President of the Los Angeles City Ethics Commission.

Hochman launched his campaign for Attorney General at the end of April and has since raised nearly a million dollars—establishing himself as the leading Republican challenger to Gavin Newsom appointed Attorney General Rob Bonta in the 2022 election.
