Back in July, when I broke the news on the FlashReport that Brian Bilbray’s Chief of Staff Steve Danon had confirmed he was running for SD County Supervisor in 2012, as well as indicating he was “100 percent in” even if it meant taking on the incumbent, the folks at Supervisor Pam Slater-Price’s office were not the only ones raising eyebrows about how early it was to start a campaign.
Early-schmirlie. In what may clearly be the earliest (that word again) endorsement ever by the Deputy Sheriffs’ Association of San Diego County in a race of such magnitude, today the organization announced it’s support for Danon. In 2012, just so we’re clear.
Keep in mind the DSA hasn’t made many (or any) endorsements for 2010 yet, as far as I can tell.
“I’m honored to have received the endorsement of the Deputy Sheriffs’ Association (DSA) for County Supervisor,” said Danon. The DSA represents the 2,100 sworn men and woman who put their lives on the line 24 hours a day, seven days a week to patrol our …streets; protect our children and safeguard our communities.”
More to follow.
Here is the DSA press release: DSA Endorses Steve Danon
