  • The California Democrat and progressive is promoting her book “I Swear: Politics Is Messier Than My Minivan.”
  • Porter has represented California’s historically conservative Orange County since 2019.
  • “Never having run for office before, Rep. Katie Porter defied expectations in 2018,” reads part of the promo copy for Porter’s book event Tuesday at the “Sixth & I” venue in Washington, D.C. “Underestimated as a single mom and chided for her progressive values, she quickly went viral for videos of her using a whiteboard to take CEOs and corrupt government officials to task in congressional hearings.”
  • Tickets cost $20, $38 with the book.
  • “Full of candid and inspiring stories–  from how Rep. Porter lent Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez a pair of sneakers during the Capitol attack on January 6, 2021, to her kids’ lightly illegal campaign hijinks–  this is a book by an exhausted, committed parent who just doesn’t have the time for nonsense in her house,” the promo copy also reads.
