Ad Check: Where did Rudy Salas fall on gas tax, minimum wage, and other votes?

Asm. Rudy Salas (D–Bakersfield) has released his latest advertisement in his effort to unseat Rep. David Valadao (R–Hanford) for the 22nd Congressional District.
But a fact check reveals that Salas’s claims do not fully line up with the truth.
In the advertisement, Salas – who has served in the Assembly since 2012 – said he has raised the minimum wage, is lowering the price of medication like insulin and was the only Assembly Democrat to vote “no” on raising the gas tax.
