The Republican Party of San Diego County announced its endorsement Tuesday of attorney and businesswoman June Cutter in her 2020 bid in the 77th Assembly District against the Republican turned Democrat incumbent Brian Maienschein.
The district became a target for the Republican Party after Maienschein announced in January that he had re-registered as a Democrat after being re-elected to a fourth term as a Republican in November, defeating Democrat Sunday Gover by 607 votes.
County Republican Party Chairman Tony Krvaric called the seat a priority and said the party aims to “restore principled and sensible leadership” to the district which includes inland northern San Diego, Poway, Fairbanks Ranch and Rancho Santa Fe.
“June’s real-world experience as an attorney and business owner, coupled with her tenacity and unwavering principles, is what makes her a powerhouse,” Krvaric said. “I am confident that she will be an advocate for fiscal responsibility and economic prosperity in Sacramento.”
Many of the county’s local and state Republican legislators have announced their endorsement of Cutter since she announced her candidacy last month including Assemblywoman Marie Waldron, R-Escondido, Sen. Brian Jones, R-Santee, San Marcos Mayor Rebecca Jones and San Diego City Councilman Chris Cate.
“When elected, my priority will be to support the common-sense principles that the incumbent has abandoned,” Cutter said. “I will fight to lower taxes, reduce wasteful spending and ensure economic growth in the state of California.”
