Nanette Barragan

Nanette Barragan won California Congressional District 44 in 2016. Barragán was the only Latina to win an open House seat, and she points to the Congressional Hispanic Caucus’ fundraising political action committee, the Committee for Hispanic Causes/Building Our Leadership Diversity PAC (CHC BOLD PAC), as a major factor in her win.

Barragán beat Sen. Isadore Hall (D-Compton) in the race to replace Rep. Janice Hahn (D-Los Angeles), who gave up the seat to run for the L.A. County Board of Supervisors.

Barragán rallied public support to keep a Bakersfield oil company, E&B Natural Resources, from drilling in the Santa Monica Bay, the issue that drove her to join the Hermosa Beach City Council.

Her parents immigrated to the United States from Jalisco and Mexico City.
