LOS ANGELES, CA—Continuing to grow his list of key endorsements, today Secretary of the California Democratic Party, Reginald (Reggie) Jones-Sawyer won a major endorsement from former Congresswomen Diane Watson.
“Californian’s deserve representatives who are 100% committed to getting this economy moving again,” said former Congresswoman Diane Watson. “And that’s why I’m proudly supporting Reggie Jones-Sawyer for the 59th Assembly District, because I trust that he’ll work hard in Sacramento to craft pro-jobs and economic development legislation that produces tangible results that will help grow our economy.”
“I’ve always admired Congresswoman Watson’s deep commitment to helping her constituents,” said Jones-Sawyer. “She’s served as a role model for me, and I am absolutely honored to have her support in my Assembly campaign.”
