Arab-American, Muslim groups back Alan Lowenthal for Congress

The Arab American Democrats of California and CAIR-CA PAC held a fundraiser Saturday for California State Senator Alan Lowenthal's campaign for Congress at the home of former Anaheim council candidate Bill Dalati. Lowenthal, a progressive Democrat, is running in the newly designed 47th district which includes Long Beach and parts of Orange County.

He received endorsements from many progressive groups such as American Federation of Teachers, United Nurses Association of California, and CAIR-CA PAC.  The OC Weekly gave him 'Best Democrat' of 2012 award in its annual 'Best of OC' edition.
