The next primary election is a year away, but the San Diego County Democratic Party is already beginning to release endorsements.

Endorsements made Tuesday were Matt Strabone for Assessor/Recorder/County Clerk, Genevieve Jones-Wright for District Attorney, and Dave Myers for Sheriff.

“I am delighted to have earned the endorsement of the San Diego County Democratic Party,” said Strabone, a lawyer who represents nonprofit organizations. “Following our campaign’s recent fundraising record, this is yet another example of the momentum we are building all across San Diego County.”

Jones-Wright, a public defender in San Diego since 2006, said after the endorsement that she was “excited for the people power behind our movement to be fierce on crime, and fair on justice” in San Diego County.

Myers, a commander and 32-year veteran of the sheriff’s department, said he was humbled by the party’s endorsement.

“The San Diego Democratic Party is one of the best organized county parties in the state of California,” he said. “To receive their support only strengthens our operation and gives us the advantage we’ll need to win.”

Election Day is Tuesday, June 5, 2018.
