Calvert is seeking re-election to his 16th term in Washington

PALM DESERT — Ken Calvert has spent three decades in Congress but, technically, he’s a relative new face to some of the Coachella Valley, although he’s one of nation’s longest-tenured congressmen.

U.S. Rep. Calvert, a Republican from Corona who has represented sections of the Inland Empire since 1993, will be running for re-election in November in a newly drawn district that groups several Coachella Valley communities, including Palm Springs, La Quinta, Rancho Mirage and Palm Desert, with Menifee, Norco and Corona in western Riverside County.

Calvert, who is seeking election to his 16th term in Washington, currently serves on the House Appropriations Committee.

He is a lifelong resident of Riverside County and 17-year small business owner in the restaurant and real estate industries. Calvert was first elected to the House of Representatives in 1992 and is one of the most senior members serving in the legislative body. Calvert is the “Dean” of the California Republican Delegation.

As a way to help introduce him to some of his new constituents, Ken Calvert will be on hand for the grand opening of the East Valley Republican Women Patriots’ new Coachella Valley headquarters, 73995 El Paseo Drive on Sept. 7 from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Complimentary tacos and margaritas will be served.

Reservations must be made as soon as possible so organizers know how many guests to expect. Call (760) 771-9771 to make your reservation.

On Calvert’s heels will come Congressman Matt Gaetz. The group invited him to speak on Monday, Sept. 12. You may learn more by clicking here. 

East Valley Republican Women Patriots was chartered in 2021. With more than 1,600 members, it is the largest group of its kind in the nation, according to President Joy Miedecke.
