Press Release from the GOP
Overwhelming support among grassroots Republicans led to decision
SAN DIEGO – At its monthly meeting this evening, the Republican Party of San Diego County overwhelmingly endorsed Senator Joel Anderson for the office of San Diego County Supervisor, District 2.
“Senator Anderson’s solid record of accomplishment and his steadfast advocacy for Republican principles earned him the endorsement tonight. Our grassroots volunteers have taken notice of Senator Anderson’s leadership over several decades of engagement with the Party. That’s why we will work extremely hard to elect him as the next Supervisor from District 2,” said Republican Party Chairman Tony Krvaric.
“I was struck by the passionate support that Anderson has among activists throughout the county,” continued Krvaric. “Anderson has been a strong and effective voice for limited government and lifting the barriers to jobs and prosperity, and it’s clear those messages resonated,” Krvaric concluded.
Committee members took note of Senator Anderson’s leadership in opposing tax increases and his nearly single-handed effort to restore integrity to the Senate floor. Anderson stood alone in calling for the expulsion of Senators convicted of felonies while his colleagues voted to give them a paid vacation.
Senator Anderson has received numerous awards, including being named Legislator of the Year by the California Small Business Association, the California State Sheriffs’ Association and the San Diego County Deputy District Attorneys’ Association.
The vote in support of Senator Anderson was overwhelming, though it is the policy of the Republican Party of San Diego County not to reveal exact vote totals.
