Fremgen speaks out about the corrosive influence of corporate money in politics Sacramento, CA – On Tuesday, February 2, the Sacramento Bee published an article highlighting the disparities facing congressional challenger Jimmy Fremgen as he takes on Congresswoman Doris Matsui for California’s 7th Congressional District. The full article is available here: “We can already see the influence that corporate money has on our representation here in Sacramento,” Fremgen said. “It means that more time is spent with corporate donors than hosting events that address problems in the district. Every ‘expert’ I’ve spoken to says that there is no way to beat an incumbent who is willing to take millions from corporations. This race shouldn’t be about money, it should be about who is getting our representatives' attention while Sacramento is being left out in the cold.” Jimmy Fremgen is a candidate for United States House of Representatives District CA-07.
