Eloise Gómez Reyes (born January 27, 1956) is an American politician serving as the Majority Leader of the California State Assembly.[1] She is a Democrat representing the 47th Assembly District, encompassing parts of the Inland Empire. She was first elected to the Assembly by defeating fellow Democrat Cheryl Brown, who she claimed was not progressive enough.
