Tim Sheridan Earns Official Endorsement of California's Democratic Party

Tim Sheridan won the official endorsement of the California Democratic Party in his run for the Congressional seat in California’s 42nd District. The results were announced Sunday at the Los Angeles Convention Center, where an audience of over 3,000 delegates, officials and observers attended the 2014 California Democrats State Convention. When asked for his response, Sheridan said, “I am honored to be endorsed by my fellow California Democrats and credit the hard work of my Team, headed by Campaign Chair Gail Ferrell.”

Sheridan added, “When I’m elected, I will be responsive to the voters in my district – everyone, Democrats, Republicans and Independents.  I will live up to my campaign slogan ‘People First’.” In early February, Sheridan won the Pre-endorsement Conference vote with 94.7% approval against two other Democratic candidates.

 Governor Jerry Brown, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-San Francisco), and Attorney General Kamala Harris spoke at Convention, as did National Democratic leaders Maryland Governor Martin O'Malley and Representative Keith Ellison (D-Minn.).

The 42nd Congressional District, a geographical area shaped like the letter “X,” runs along the I-15 corridor roughly from Corona southeast to Temecula, and northeast along the I-215 and CA-79 corridors to Beaumont. It also includes the communities of Eastvale, Norco, Lake Elsinore, Wildomar, Murrieta, Menifee, Sun City, Winchester, Homeland and Nuevo. Sheridan has lived in Menifee for 11 years. This is his first run for public office.

Contrary to those ostriches with their heads buried in the sand many of us are willing to look at a variety of solutions, from all corners. We must learn from what has worked(Reagan, Clinton) and scuttle what has not worked. Certainly calling ideas "BS" is indicative of a limited vocabulary and is not really a serious debate strategy, is it?

@antonio or is it lyn? you seem confused. Tax revenue increases when tax rates are reduced. Now agree tax revenues need to increase. We need to reduce spending. Nothing biased there.
