Will Rollins will headline an Evening Rally of Action in Palm Springs

PALM SPRINGS — On Tuesday, Oct. 25, starting at 5:30 p.m., Will Rollins will headline an Evening Rally of Action in Palm Springs at the historic William Holden Estate. He will be flanked by the Honorable Barbara Boxer and Congresswoman Barbara Lee. 

Rollins, a former federal prosecutor, is running for election to the U.S. House on the Democratic ticket, to represent California’s 41st Congressional District. He is on the ballot in the general election on Nov. 8. He advanced from the primary on June 7, 2022.

The race has become one of the most closely watched election contests in the country,

Rollins is looking to unseat Ken Calvert, a Republican who has represented portions of the Inland Empire for 30 years. They are both seeking election to a newly redrawn district which now includes several Coachella Valley cities — Palm Springs, La Quinta, Rancho Mirage, Palm Desert and Indian Wells — along with Menifee, Norco and Corona in western Riverside County.

The Los Angeles Times recently endorsed Collins saying, “He brings new ideas and vigor to a district that has been represented by Republican Rep. Ken Calvert for three decades.”

The prominent newspaper’s editorial went on to say, “Calvert is the longest-serving congressional representative from the Inland Empire, but he has tarnished the office with his votes following the attempted coup of the U.S. presidency. Calvert was one of 139 House members who failed to obey the will of the voters by refusing to certify the 2020 presidential election. He also voted against a commission to investigate the Jan. 6 insurrection.”

“We’ve all been excited to see the rising star that is Will Rollins,” Democrats wrote in a bulletin promoting the rally. “Will has brought a level of intelligence, grasp of issues, and maturity to this race that belie his young age. He is truly an outstanding candidate, and he is well-positioned to win California’s CD-41 on Nov. 8.”
