Former Congressman and current congressional candidate Doug Ose today announced another endorsement in the race for California's 7th Congressional district. 

Republican Ose announced that the Folsom Police Officers Association pledged their support for his candidacy. Ose, along with fellow Republicans Elizabeth Emken and Igor Birman, hope to unseat first term incumbent Dr. Ami Bera (D- Elk Grove).  
 
“Local law enforcement need a crime fighter like Doug Ose in Congress,” Daren Prociw, president of the Folsom Police Officers Association said. “Following 9/11, Doug worked closely with the City of Folsom to make sure Folsom Dam was safe and secure from acts of terrorism."

As in 2012 and 2010, the race for this district is drawing national attention with the National Journal rating it as one of the Congressional seat most likely to change hands. Bera defeated Republican Dan Lungren in 2012 after failing to unseat him in 2010.  
 
"I appreciate the hard work of the dedicated law enforcement officers that keep our neighborhoods and schools safe,” Ose said. “I witnessed their exceptional professionalism and service when we worked together to reduce the threat of terrorism, and I am honored to have earned their support.”
As a centrist, fellow Republicans Birman and Emken have portrayed Ose as not having sufficiently conservative credentials. Bera and the three Republicans will face off in the June primary with the top two finishers, regardless of party affiliation, advancing to a run-off in the November general election.
