Will Rollins

Former National Security Prosecutor - Will Rollins is running to serve California’s new 41st Congressional District, challenging incumbent Republican Ken Calvert, who has one of the strongest anti-LGBTQ voting records in the House. Calvert also voted against certifying Joe Biden as President after the 2020 election, setting up a stark contrast between himself and Will. California’s new 41st Congressional District was redrawn to be one of the state’s most competitive seats and is a top Red2Blue pick up opportunity in 2022.

Will Rollins is a former federal prosecutor who focused on counterterrorism and counterintelligence cases in Southern California. He’s running for Congress because the attack on the U.S. Capitol underscored why America needs a new generation of leaders to end the toxic divisions that threaten our democracy and prevent us from solving problems together. After helping to prosecute some of the insurrectionists who attacked the US Capitol on January 6th, Will decided to challenge Republican Congressman Ken Calvert, who voted to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election.

Coming of age at a time when being gay was a crime in some states, Will and his partner Paolo know that government-sponsored discrimination has lasting effects on all Americans, our economy, and our national security. That has motivated Will to improve the lives of others who face discrimination. Will’s mother and father, a public defender and journalist, stressed the importance of justice and free speech at a young age. His parents taught him that although the system may not be perfect, every generation has a responsibility to improve it. With this in mind, Will is running for Congress to serve the 41st district of California and bring justice and accountability back to Washington.
