“We need to reform Sacramento so it’s working for us again,” Faulconer said in his endorsement. “Millions of forgotten Californians face unaffordable housing, struggling schools and the worst poverty rate in the country.”
“It’s time for new ideas to turn Sacramento around, and John Cox is the best choice for the job,” Faulconer added. “He will never stop fighting for our communities.”
Faulconer is a Republican, but has frequently taken liberal positions on immigration, trade and environment that are at odds with President Trump, who has also endorsed Cox.
Cox, who moved to Rancho Santa Fe after a business and political career in Illinois, faces Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom, a Democrat, in the November general election.
