The Republican Party of San Diego County this week voted to endorse Escondido Mayor Sam Abed for supervisor.
“Endorsing one Republican over another requires a 2/3 vote threshold and rarely happens,” GOP Chairman Tony Krvaric said. “Clearly Sam Abed’s long-time and steadfast commitment to Republican principles and values earned him the support of committee members and we are proud to endorse him.”
More than two-thirds of the committee members chose Abed.
Roberts has had a rocky term as Supervisor. The former Solana Beach councilman faced allegations of improper treatment of his staff. The claims eventually forced the county to settle for $310,000.
