Independent Expenditure Candidate Campaigns

JobsPACJobsPAC has won recognition for its bipartisan efforts to support pro-jobs candidates running in open legislative seats since 1992. It was formed by a group of California employers to take bold, proactive steps in electing pro-jobs candidates from both parties to office in the new era of legislative term limits.

In the November 2014 elections, JobsPAC helped move the Senate and Assembly away from super majority dominance by one party. JobsPAC victories in the 2014 election cycle included Democratic Napa County Supervisor Bill Dodd in a multi-candidate primary in Assembly District 4 and Republican Attorney Catharine Baker (Dublin) winning the open seat of a termed-out Democrat in Assembly District 16.
