CA State Senator Anna Caballero Backs Dr. Mahmood’s Campaign for CA-40

Mar 10, 2022

TUSTIN — State Senator Anna Caballero announced her endorsement of Dr. Asif Mahmood today in his fight to flip CA-40.

“Dr. Mahmood is a leader who puts people first– he is a problem-solver who understands the struggles of our California families,” said Cabellero. “I look forward to all of his future accomplishments in Congress.”

Dr. Mahmood has treated thousands of patients over the last twenty years: ER patients, critical care patients, and inpatients. Asif has made it a rule in his practice — if someone is without insurance, his office won’t ask for payment.

Caballero joins the growing coalition of California and Orange County leaders supporting Dr. Mahmood’s campaign. They include:
