As Ro Khanna takes another shot at unseating Rep. Mike Honda, a key part of his campaign narrative is that lots of local players who either backed Honda last time or stayed above the fray are now on his side.
Today, Khanna won support from a fairly high-profile Honda defector: Assemblyman Rich Gordon of Menlo Park.
There was no comment from Gordon in today’s news release from the Khanna camp. Khanna said he looked forward to “taking our shared values to the halls of Congress in Washington”
Here is Khanna’s list of folks who were neutral or supportive of Honda in 2014 who now back him.
