Washington D.C. — On Sunday, U.S. Rep. Katie Hill, CA-25, announced her retirement from the United States House of Representatives. Latino Victory Fund Executive Director Mayra Macías issued the following statement in response:

“With more than one-third of the population of California’s 25th Congressional District being Latino,  the next representative must reflect the district’s rich diversity. Latino Victory Fund is committed to increasing Latino representation in Congress. California’s 25th Congressional District presents a prime opportunity for Latino Victory Fund to recruit a strong and viable Latino candidate that will ensure this district remains Democratic for years to come.”
