My name is Julianne Benzel and I am your “Champion:” I am fighting for your Families, Freedom, and Future. I am running for California’s 4th Congressional District in 2020. I’m an American Historian, Mother of 5, a devoted member of my church and community. My family has been planted & invested in CA-04 my entire life. In my estimation, CA-04 is the greatest district in the nation; we are unequivocally the “Outdoor Capital of the World” and should be celebrated as such. YouTube Link to my "backstory:"

Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

With a firm foundation and knowledge of our US Constitution and History, I am fighting to restore our basic founding principles. We currently have a “placeholder” in CA-04 and we need a “firebrand.” The dynamics and concerns of CA-04 have changed and it is time for a fresh, passionate, and active voice. I will relentlessly advocate for the issues that my constituents care about. I’m an originalist to the US Constitution. I meet the 3 stipulations required to run. I’ve analyzed both United States foreign and domestic policy for the past 25 years so I have a firm grasp of what policies have and have not been effective. I have some unique, fresh, and “out of the box” ideas to address CA-04 concerns. My singular goal is to work on behalf of all constituents in District 4. Link to latest YouTube video:
