Stafford adds to endorsements, gets support from Sacramento Stonewall Democratic club

In her bid to advance from the March primary to the November election where she hopes to face incumbent Jim Cooper for California's 9th Assembly District, Tracie Stafford has been capturing important endorsements. Last night she received another significant endorsement for her campaign.

By a vote of 27 to 10, with five no votes, The Stonewall Democratic Club of Sacramento voted to endorse Stafford over Cooper. The Stonewall Democratic Club focuses on issues affecting the LGBT community.

Stafford is one of three candidates challenging Cooper, who is expected to advance to the November ballot as he seeks a fourth term. Stafford has positioned herself with the progressive side of the Democratic party while Cooper, a retired Sacramento County Sheriff's Captain, is in the moderate wing.

A message from Stafford's campaign field director Zoe Kipping said "Tracie will always stand up and fight for LGBTQ human rights in our community, prisons and schools."

Along with the Stonewall Democratic Club of Sacramento, Stafford has been endorsed by COurage California, National Organization of Women California, Smart Justice California, the Wellstone Progressive Democrats of Sacramento County, and Women Democrats of Sacramento County. Also of significance, the California Service Employees International Union (SEIU), which is comprised of 17 unions, and could provide a significant financial boost to Stafford's campaign as the process moves forward.
