August 12, 2019: San Diego City Council District 7 candidate Wendy Wheatcroft announces California Congressman Eric Swalwell as the latest high-profile candidate to endorse her campaign. Swalwell has represented California’s 15th Congressional District since 2013. He is well-known for his support of gun violence prevention initiatives both in California and nationwide.
“My presidential campaign was focused on ensuring that the critical issue of gun violence prevention in America was at the forefront of the next administration's agenda,” said Rep. Eric Swalwell (CA-15). “As recent tragedies have shown, we need bold action now more than ever. But we need leaders taking action at every level of government, and Wendy Wheatcroft is running for San Diego City Council to do just that.
“I connected with Wendy through our common goal of ending gun violence in America. Her efforts to date as a leader and organizer have been incredible. But she knows cities can do even more to make homes safer for children, to protect women, and improve public safety. And that's why I'm proud to endorse her for San Diego City Council.”
“District 7 in San Diego has been held by a Republican for nearly a decade. However, we have a strong opportunity to flip this district Democrat, with it now leaning 10% more Democrat than Republican in registered voters,” said Wendy Wheatcroft, candidate for San Diego City Council District 7.
