Resolution on Endorsing Non-Democrats
Whereas, the Los Angeles County Democratic Party has worked and continues to work to build our Party by registering voters as Democrats and by electing Democrats to office at all levels of government, and
Whereas, the ‘top two primary’ may result in a general election in which there is no Democrat on the ballot for certain races, and
Whereas, the ‘lesser of two evils’ theory might influence some to encourage Democrats to endorse non-Democrats running for office,
Therefore be it resolved, that the Los Angeles County Democratic Party reaffirms and will disseminate its longstanding policy to only endorse Democrats, and
Be it further resolved, that the Los Angeles County Democratic Party is committed to work to ensure a Democrat secures a spot in the “top two” of every state and federal office within the County of Los Angeles.
