Rep. McNerney, Sen. DeSaulnier and Dublin Mayor Sbranti endorse Heidi Hall for Congress

Over the past week, Heidi Hall, candidate in the 1st Congressional District race, was endorsed by Rep. Jerry McNerney, Sen. Mark DeSaulnier, and Dublin Mayor Tim Sbranti. Hall is running against incumbent and freshman Rep. Doug LaMalfa.

“Heidi is very hardworking,” said McNerney. “I know that she will be an effective representative for the people of the first district, and an important voice on policy issues. I look forward to working with her in the House.”

“With all the gridlock and partisan bickering in Washington, it is critical that we send more commonsense and pragmatic leaders to Congress so that we can get America back on track,” said DeSaulnier. “That’s why I’m pleased to strongly support Heidi Hall. Like me, Heidi understands that creating jobs, expanding access to health care, rebuilding our aging infrastructure, protecting taxpayer dollars, and protecting our environment must be Washington’s top priorities — not waging political warfare. After November, I look forward to working with Heidi in Congress to strengthen our nation and all of California.”

“Heidi’s addition to Congress will be a boon for California,” said Sbranti. “She’ll not only help put Congress back to work for the American people, but she’ll also lead our state back to economic prosperity.”

“The campaign’s been growing in momentum over the past few weeks,” said Hall. “I am honored to receive the endorsements of Congressman McNerny, Sen. DeSaulnier, and Councilmember Sbranti. Their support and the support of voters around the district signifies our campaign’s increasing momentum as we push toward election day.”

Hall is a lifelong resident of Northern California and launched her campaign for the 1st Congressional District two years ago. She was raised by teachers, and is the daughter and mother of veterans.

She is running to provide the vision and leadership needed to create jobs, improve rural broadband access, and maintain retirement security, among other important issues. The Sierra Club California and by the California Teamsters were Hall’s most recent endorsements.

McNerney is the democratic representative for the 9th Congressional District of California, and he has served as a member since 2007.

DeSaulnier is the democratic nominee for the 11th Congressional District of California, a district currently represented by retiring Rep. George Miller. He currently represents the California 7th State Senate District.

Sbranti is the democratic nominee for the 16th Assembly District in California.
