San Diego mayoral candidate Carl DeMaio garnered the endorsement of the local Republican Party Saturday.
The endorsement for Councilman DeMaio—who is running against two other Republicans, Assemblyman Nathan Fletcher and District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis—means he'll receive financial support from the local party.
“Today’s vote shows that this party is united behind the fiscal reform agenda that San Diego desperately needs,” said party chairman Tony Krvaric. “We are committed to advancing reform with a complete slate of candidates and initiatives.”
DeMaio said he'd work on gaining support across party lines.
“I appreciate the endorsement of the Republican Party and look forward to earning the support of Democrats and Independent voters who understand the fundamental need for reform at City Hall,” DeMaio said.
The endorsement comes after DeMaio received two-thirds of the votes from the party's central committee.
