‘Carl has been with us at the forefront of every single reform movement in San Diego over the past decade. We know that he’ll take the same leadership and commitment to reforming government back to Washington, D.C.’
SAN DIEGO – June 24, 2013: The Lincoln Club of San Diego County announced today it is endorsing Carl DeMaio for the 52nd Congressional District.
“The Lincoln Club is extremely proud to stand with Carl in his campaign for Congress,” Lincoln Club Chairman Bill Lynch said. “Carl has been with us at the forefront of every single reform movement in San Diego over the past decade. We know that he’ll take the same leadership and commitment to reforming government back to Washington, D.C. and make a tremendous difference.”
DeMaio said: “I am grateful to have the support of the Lincoln Club, a organization that shares my deep commitment to reforming all levels of government and reducing the burdens that are too often placed on taxpayers and job creators.”
As one of San Diego’s leading reform organizations, the Lincoln Club of San Diego County’s mission is to advance free market principles and ideas by recruiting, endorsing and supporting pro-prosperity candidates and ballot measures that reflect its commitment to responsible public policy, the expansion of economic opportunity and enhanced quality of life throughout San Diego County. The Lincoln Club spearheaded many of San Diego’s most critical reforms, including the defeat of the sales tax initiative in 2010, and the passage of Proposition B, Comprehensive Pension Reform, in 2012.
“Carl has proven himself time and time again – he is 100 percent committed to reforming government, keeping taxes low and creating the best possible environment for job creators to thrive,” said T.J. Zane, President & CEO of the organization. “Carl’s opponent really is a nice guy but we need someone in Congress who isn’t going to vote with Nancy Pelosi 6 out of 7 times. We need real results.”
DeMaio carried the 52nd District with 58 percent of the vote during the mayoral race in 2012. He was a proven reformer on the San Diego City Council and gained national attention for his role in San Diego’s successful Comprehensive Pension Reform initiative in June of 2012.
