LOS ANGELES – Los Angeles County Democratic Party Chair Mark Gonzalez released the following statement regarding Jesse Gabriel’s Special Election Primary campaign making it to the run off for Assembly District 45, and announcing his endorsement by the Democratic Party for the June 5, 2018 Election:
“Through a hard-fought election for Assemblymember of District 45 with a plethora of Democrats, Jesse Gabriel showed the tenacity, perseverance, and character to make it through to a run off which he is sure to win. Jesse has been a devout public servant as an attorney and is poised to make a diligent Assemblymember who will faithfully represent the constituents of the 45th Assembly District. We hope every good Democrat will join us in showing Jesse our full support as he continues the construction of the Democratic Party’s blue dynamo that is taking the country by storm.
“The GOP will have no choice but to begin mudslinging in this election, yet we will stick to going high as they go low. Republicans know they have no chance, and as the despot in the White House and the GOP members of the federal legislature clamber to retain their majorities in the face of the Democratic Party’s progressive dynamo, elections like those that elect Jesse Gabriel to the Assembly will continue to serve as a reminder that good Democratic candidates and their policies trump divisive and hateful politics every time.”
