As they enter the home stretch, Democratic Party of Sacramento County promotes endorsed candidates

With the days winding down until voting ends and more than 80 percent of countywide ballots not yet submitted as of October 31, the Democratic Party of Sacramento County is making a final push for its endorsed candidates.

The county party organization has sent a mailer to registered Democratic voters featuring all endorsed candidates, including down-ballot races.

Among the Elk Grove races featured are Elk Grove City Council Districts 2 and 4, the Elk Grove Unified School District, and Cosumnes Community Services District. The candidates being promoted are Rod Brewer for Elk Grove City Council District 2; Sergio Robles for Elk Grove City Council District 4; Michael Vargas for Elk Grove Unified School District Area 2; and Ali Moua for Cosumnes Community Service Division 2. 

While down-ballot Elk Grove candidates are included, the top priority candidates on the front of the piece include Jaclyn Moreno, who is running against Republican Pat Hume for the Sacramento County Board of Supervisors District 5. Other endorsed candidates include Dave Jones for State Senate District 8 and Eric Guerra for California Assembly District 10.

Guerra and Jones are running against fellow Democrats Angelique Ashby and Stephanie Nguyen, who were not endorsed by the county or the state party. The two races pitting Democrats against one another are both considered very close. 

Another high-priority race for the state and county party is for the reelection of incumbent Ken Cooley to the California Assembly District 7 seat. Cooley is in a hard-fought battle against Republican Joshua Hoover. 

Also prominently featured is U.S. Rep. Doris Matsui, who is running for the first time to represent Elk Grove in District 7. Matsui switched districts with Rep. Ami Bera, who is running in District 6.   

According to Chairwoman Tracie Stafford, along with the mailers, the county party has a massive operation in the closing days in support of their endorsed candidates. Along with the mailers, the county party has a nine-zone countywide get-out-the-vote effort.

"We are pulling out all the stops as we approach the Tuesday," Stafford said. "We have left no stone unturned in supporting candidates who will put the interests of the people first."

She added, "When Democrats vote, the people win."
