2016 California Primary Endorsements DESERT STONEWALL ENDORSEMENTS AND RECOMMENDATIONS

JUNE 7, 2016 CALIFORNIA PRIMARY

President: We have 2 strong candidates and Stonewall will support the eventual nominee.
U.S. Senator: Attorney General Kamala Harris
CD 36: Dr. Raul Ruiz, MD
AD 42: Greg Rodriguez
AD 56: Eduardo Garcia
AD 60: Sabrina Cervantes

Democratic Central Committee AD 42: No formal endorsement process was done. However, we strongly support Elle Kurpiewski, who is a loyal Stonewall Steering Committee member and activist.

The California Democratic Party supports the one ballot initiative on the June ballot: “Suspension of Legislators Amendment.” This initiative allows the legislature to vote to suspend members with a resolution containing substantial justification and could also cause suspended members salary and benefits to be forfeited.
