Endorses McNerney for Congress

Sacramento, CA – Jerry McNerney, running in a contested primary for California's 11th Congressional District seat currently held by Republican Richard Pombo, received the state party's coveted endorsement at the California Democratic Party convention on Saturday.

"I am very honored to receive the endorsement of the California Democratic Party. This is the culmination of campaigning tirelessly over the last two years and working to establish strong relationships with party leaders throughout the district," said McNerney.

The California Democratic Party endorsement requires 60% of the district delegates to vote in favor of a candidate. McNerney received 75% of the vote, overwhelming competitors Steve Filson and Steve Thomas.

"The delegates in the district know that my background as an energy expert is an ideal anti-dote to Richard Pombo and his Big Oil buddies," said McNerney. "They believe in my vision to transform the district into the Silicon Valley of new energy technology, bringing thousands of jobs to our region."

The California Democratic Party endorsement follows significant endorsements for McNerney from the 2-million member California Labor Federation and SEIU's California State Council, representing 600,000 people.
