(El Cajon) The Bill Wells for Assembly campaign today announced yet another major endorsement by a local grassroots organization. The San Diego Minutemen have announced their backing of Conservative Republican Bill Wells in his run for the State Assembly.
“Bill Wells is the only candidate in the 77th Assembly race who will protect our border, fight illegal immigration, and defend the Constitution,” Said Jeff Schwilk, Founder of the San Diego Minutemen.
The mission of the San Diego Minutemen is to demand maximum border security and immigration enforcement both locally and at the national level. The Minutemen oppose illegal immigration in all parts of San Diego County through political activism and assist the U.S. Border Patrol in securing the U.S. – Mexican Border from terrorists, gang members, criminals, drugs, and illegal aliens entering the United States.
The 77th Assembly District includes a large section of the U.S.-Mexican Border. Bill Wells has been a strong proponent of securing the border and allowing state governments to enact Arizona modeled laws that promote local enforcement. He has pledged to pressure the federal government to bring more enforcement resources to the border region, while cutting off the magnets that bring illegal immigrants into California.
In the last two months of the campaign, Bill Wells has earned the endorsements of the major local grassroots organizations that are made up of members of East County communities. The San Diego Minutemen join the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association, the California Republican Assembly, the San Diego Tax-Fighters, the National Rifle Association, and the California Pro-Life Council in supporting Bill Wells for Assembly.
The 77th Assembly district includes the communities of: Alpine, Borrego Springs, Bostonia, Casa de Oro – Mount Helix, Crest, El Cajon, Granite Hills, Harbison Canyon, Jamul, La Mesa, Lakeside, Ramona, Rancho San Diego, San Diego, San Diego Country Estates, Santee and Winter Gardens.
