A congressional hopeful from California told Big League Politics that he is optimistic about his groundswell of support as he looks to unseat a longtime congresswoman in November.

“Every day I grow more confident,” said Omar Navarro, a 28-year-old political outsider from Inglewood.

Navarro is running against Rep. Maxine M. Waters (D.-Calif.) in California’s 43rd congressional district. Waters has been a congresswoman since 1991.

The candidate, who has a large social media presence, said that President Donald J. Trump was his inspiration for running. He feels like an underdog, similar to Trump.

“If Trump can do it, I can do it,” Navarro said.

“Not only did Maxine Waters acknowledge my candidacy a whole year before the election, she called for my investigation in December, which shows that she feels threatened by me,” said Navarro.
