SAN DIEGO (CNS) – The Republican Party of San Diego County has endorsed City
Councilman Carl DeMaio in the city's mayoral race.
DeMaio clinched the party's endorsement Saturday over other major
republican candidates, county District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis and Assemblyman

“I appreciate the endorsement of the Republican Party and look forward
to earning the support of Democrats and Independent voters who understand the
fundamental need for reform at City Hall,” DeMaio said.
Officials said DeMaio was chosen for his track record of advocating for
taxpayer centered reform and will benefit from the party's volunteer base and
“The vote was a reflection of growing grassroots enthusiasm for
DeMaio, and enables us to advance our message of fiscal reform in a unified
manner,” said Tony Krvaric, party chairman.
