David Hildebrand is a Democratic Socialist running to represent the residents of the State of California in the U.S. Senate. The son of a union carpenter, and a past member of a union himself, he knows the value of protecting the working class.
David graduated from CSU Sacramento, where he earned his Bachelor’s Degree in Government. He volunteered for Bernie Sander’s 2016 presidential campaign, and eventually became the Staging Location Director for California’s 6th Congressional District. It was during this time that he saw the true power of a grassroots campaign, run by the people and for the people.
After the primary, he felt compelled to stay involved and continue the fight for a better future. David helped out with a local school board campaign, and canvassed for healthcare, including the California single-payer bill, SB 562. After serious consideration, and seeing the toxicity of corporate money in political elections, David decided that he would start a U.S. Senate campaign to represent the working people of California.
David will defend California against a Congress and Presidency determined to cut the social, economic, and environmental programs that American workers rely on, and ensure that the government is turned back over to the people, its rightful owners.
David has worked as a Legislative Analyst for the State of California for over 6 years. He currently lives in Sacramento, with his partner Rachelanne, and their two dogs, Clyde and Aurora.
