LOS ANGELES, CA – Campbell City Councilmember Evan Low became the officially endorsed candidate of the California Democratic Party in the race for Assembly District 28 at the state convention in Los Angeles held this past weekend.
State Party delegates voted to ratify the endorsement after an overwhelming 100% of local Democratic Party delegates voted in favor of awarding Low the endorsement at last month’s Pre-Endorsement Conference.
“It is tremendously exciting to have Democrats united behind our campaign for State Assembly,” said Evan Low. “This vote of confidence from grassroots Democratic leaders from across the state is a huge milestone in our campaign. We are stronger than ever and I look forward to the work ahead.”
Since the start of the year, Low has racked up endorsements at a feverish pace. The California Democratic Party now joins Service Employees International Union California, the California Nurses Association, the San Jose Teachers Association, the California Professional Firefighters, the Peace Officers Research Association of California, and scores of local elected officials, community leaders, and small business owners supporting Evan Low for Assembly.
