The BIPAC Action Fund announced its endorsement of incumbent Mimi Walters for her re-election campaign to the U.S. House of Representatives in California's 45th congressional district in April 2018.
Congresswoman Mimi Walters currently serves on the House Energy and Commerce Committee. She previously served in the California State Senate from 2008-2014, where she represented California's 37th State Senate District. Prior to serving in the Senate, she served two, two-year terms in the State Assembly. She began her career in public service as a member of the Laguna Niguel City Council in 1996. She also served as the City’s mayor in 2000.
Mimi Walters possesses a background in both business and local government. Her professional career has included time with the firm of Drexel, Burnham & Lambert as an Investment Executive, and Kidder Peabody & Company. She is a founder of the California Women’s Leadership Association (CWLA) and has served on the Boards of the National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO), the Laguna Niguel Republican Women Federated, the American Cancer Society, and the South Coast Medical Center Foundation.
BIPAC's endorsement for Rep. Walters helps draw a clear business issue distinction between her consistently positive record and that of her future opponent who the anti-business coalition will strongly support.
