Democrats Endorse Candidates That Will Promote Fairness, Inclusivity and Opportunity for Californians and Yolo County Communities
The Yolo County Democratic Party (YCDP) has endorsed candidates for federal, state and local races in the Tuesday, June 7 Primary Election. These endorsements are the conclusion of a lengthy process by both the California Democratic Party (CDP) and the Yolo County Democratic Party.
“This year marks a milestone in Democratic Party leadership as the nation chooses a new president amid a Republican Party season of obstruction, political intransigence, and the adoption of exclusionary rhetoric and policy in Washington D.C. and in states and communities across the country,” said Bob Schelen, YCDP Chair.
“Now is a critical time for Democrats to guide the nation toward policies of fairness, tolerance, and better economic and educational opportunities for all of us. The Yolo County Democratic Party is confident that our endorsed 2016 candidates embody these principles, and that their election will allow Yolo County and California to continue to lead the nation in fostering the kind of communities we all want for ourselves and for our children,” he added.
YCDP Endorsed Candidates for the Election to Be Held June 7, 2016:
- Kamala D. Harris, for Senate
- John Garamendi, incumbent, in House Congressional District 3
