CAMPBELL, CA – Quickly following his strong fundraising report, Evan Low’s campaign announced today that the Democratic Party Pre-endorsement Conference has unanimously awarded Low their recommendation for endorsement.
Low’s successful fundraising and widening political support squarely position him as the clear front-runner in the race to succeed termed-out Assemblymember Paul Fong in Assembly District 28.
“This vote strengthens the strong lead and momentum that we’ve built, and leaves our campaign very close to being formally endorsed by the Democratic Party,” Low said. “I’m deeply honored to receive this endorsement recommendation and cannot thank my supporters enough for their help and encouragement.”
The recommendation will become a formal endorsement once it has been ratified at the Democratic Party State Convention in March.
The pre-endorsement recommendation continues Low’s campaign’s widening support and momentum. This last week, Low announced his endorsement by Assemblymembers Das Williams, Ed Chau and Steve Bradford. They join a growing and diverse base of support that includes local city leaders, Bay Area state legislators, statewide leaders, educators, labor unions, small business owners, and the law enforcement community that have united to support Evan Low for State Assembly.
