Los Angeles investor and entrepreneur Joseph Sanberg is stepping up his political involvement.
On Monday he launched the Working Hero PAC, which will initially support progressive congressional candidates running against conservative Republican incumbents.
"There's a lot of California members of Congress who have supported policies that favor privilege, that make basic needs more expensive and that give monopolies and their lobbyists control over the economy and our democracy," Sanberg said.
Sanberg would not rule out a run for office himself. And while speaking to the Sacramento Press Club, he railed against state politicians who tout the state's progressive policies while so many Californians live at or close to the poverty level. Though sometimes mentioned as a possible U.S. Senate candidate, Sanberg praised state Senate leader Kevin de León, who is running against incumbent Sen. Dianne Feinstein.
