Will Rollins

California, Congress (CA-41)


Democrat Will Rollins is running for U.S. Representative in CA-41, which encompasses much of Riverside County, including Palm Springs and Palm Desert. A former federal prosecutor, Rollins brings a background in law enforcement and national security to his role in Congress.

Born and raised in Southern California, Rollins earned a bachelor's degree from Dartmouth College in 2007 and a juris doctor from Columbia Law School in 2012.

He worked as an Assistant U.S. Attorney, protecting the public from white-collar criminals, including a Ponzi scheme organizer who defrauded dozens of seniors out of their retirement savings, as well as a corrupt physician who sold opiates for cash. Rollins later joined the Terrorism and Export Crimes Section of the National Security Division, where he prosecuted an electrical engineer for conspiring to send microchips with missile guidance applications to China, Iranian nationals for violating U.S. sanctions on Tehran, a reported QAnon follower for an attack at the Port of Los Angeles, and some of the insurrectionists who attacked the US Capitol on January 6th.

On the Issues

Rollins's first foray into politics came in 2022, when he challenged the incumbent Republican representative in CA-41. Rollins emphasized his experience in law enforcement and his commitment to bipartisan problem-solving. He lost a close election.

Now, Rollins is focused on winning and serving his district. “I’m running for Congress to root out the extremism in our politics and help get our government back towards delivering results to help working families, not selling them out to drive clicks and campaign cash,” Rollins said.
