Assemblyman Nathan Fletcher Endorses Joel Anderson for State Senate
Fletcher represents roughly 30% of voters in key battle-ground area in Senate District
SAN DIEGO – Adding to Assemblyman Joel Anderson’s surge in momentum since declaring his candidacy for the seat currently held by Senator Dennis Hollingsworth, San Diego Assemblyman Nathan Fletcher (R-San Diego) announced he was endorsing Anderson for State Senate.
“I support Joel Anderson for State Senate because he’s a rock-solid conservative that gets things done in Sacramento,” Fletcher said. “Additionally, as a veteran, I support Joel because he has been a fierce advocate for California’s military heroes. He led the charge to exempt California Veterans from state income taxes and to recognize their sacrifice by giving them free access to our state parks.”
Fletcher’s endorsement was seen by many as critical to victory in the 36th State Senate District. The popular Assemblyman represents the key battle-ground area of the district – including Poway and Rancho Bernardo. Fletcher represents roughly 30% of the voters in Senate District 36.
Assemblyman Nathan Fletcher was first elected in 2008 and represents the city of San Diego communities of Mira Mesa, Scripps Ranch, Rancho Bernardo, Rancho Peñasquitos and the City of Poway.
