The Los Angeles County Democratic Party (LACDP) has issued an early endorsement for Janice Hahn for the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, District 4. The Primary Election will be held on June 7, 2016.
LACDP Chair and California Democratic Party Vice-Chair Eric C. Bauman said, “Rep. Janice Hahn has always been a fierce fighter for Democratic values, as an activist, a member of the Los Angeles City Council, and as a a member of the U.S. Congress. The 4th Supervisorial District vacancy represents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to turn this district blue, and Rep. Hahn is the best candidate to do it. The Los Angeles County Democratic Party looks forward to working with Rep. Hahn to further move Los Angeles County’s progressive agenda forward.”
LACDP by-laws provide for a Candidate Recruitment / Early Endorsement Track for certain local races, enabling LACDP to play a more influential role in winning seats and majorities for Democrats in historically Republican controlled districts. This track specifically allows LACDP in special circumstances to recruit, endorse, and support candidates for local office on an accelerated timeline. The regular LACDP endorsement process begins after the close of the candidate filing deadline for a given election.
