Congressional candidate, Dr. Kermit Jones, joins Brittany and Heather to talk about what his campaign in California’s 3rd has been like, and his outlook for Election Day. Dr. Kermit also shares what it’s been like out on the campaign trail.
ABOUT Dr. Kermit Jones
Dr. Kermit Jones learned the value of hard work growing up on his family’s farm. After 9/11, he joined the Navy and served in Iraq as a combat surgeon. When he came home, Dr. Kermit was chosen by President Obama to help improve health care for veterans before returning to
California to work as a doctor.
For Dr. Kermit, it’s never been about politics, it’s about keeping the oaths he made to his
patients and his country. In Congress, he’ll work to tackle problems like inflation and
homelessness and stand up to both parties when they’re wrong — to the Democrats who want to defund the police AND the Republicans who would criminalize all abortions or defend those who attacked our country on January 6th.
