District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis announced Wednesday her endorsement for re-election by state Attorney General Kamala Harris.
Dumanis is running for a fourth term. She faces ex-prosecutors Robert Brewer and Terri Wyatt.
“Bonnie Dumanis is a statewide leader in both criminal prosecution and crime prevention,” Harris said. “She’s a trusted law enforcement partner who has a proven track record of recognizing crime trends and responding with innovative programs.”
Dumanis has the endorsement of Mayor Kevin Faulconer, members of the county Board of Supervisors and Sheriff Bill Gore.
The Brewer campaign acknowledges Dumanis’ endorsement by the union representing county prosecutors, but says more than 100 members of the Deputy District Attorneys Association voted to endorse him. Dumanis won the endorsement with 169 votes, according to the Brewer campaign.
Brewer, now in private practice, has been endorsed by the San Diego Police Officers Association and Deputy Sheriff’s Association, along with groups representing officers in other cities around the county.
