Congressman Darrell Issa Endorses Sheriff Scott Jones for Congress


(Sacramento, CA) – Sacramento County Sheriff Scott Jones today announced that he has secured the endorsement of Congressman Darrell Issa in his race for California’s 3rd Congressional District.


Congressman Darrell Issa has fought for conservative values here in California and nationwide for decades. Issa has served southern California in Congress since 2001, chairing the powerful House Oversight and Government Reform Committee from 2011-2015 and eventually being nominated director of the United States Trade and Development Agency by President Trump in 2018. Congressman Issa rejoined Congress in 2020.


“I’m endorsing conservative Sheriff Scott Jones because he has proven he will stand up to the ‘defund the police’ movement, stand up to BLM, and help me secure the border to stop illegal immigration. He is the law and order candidate we need in Congress.” – Congressman Darrell Issa


Congressman Issa’s endorsement joins those of Congressman Doug LaMalfa, State Senator Jim Nielsen, and former or current Sheriffs in all 10 counties in CA-03. 


Sheriff Jones accomplished a strong record of leadership at the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Office, stewarding the Department’s recovery from the worst financial crisis of its history, becoming a regional leader in the fight against gangs, and hiring a record number of women, minorities, and veterans. As one of the foremost experts on law enforcement in California, Sheriff Jones has been an advocate for investing in public safety and a vocal opponent of the ‘Defund the Police’ movement. In Congress, Jones will be an advocate for fiscal accountability, border security, and restoring criminal justice to America’s communities. A nationally recognized law enforcement leader, Jones has testified before Congress, and has presented at two White House conferences on law enforcement, immigration, and safety issues.

California’s 3rd Congressional District includes the Counties of Placer, Nevada, Mono, Sierra, Inyo, Plumas and Alpine and portions of Sacramento, El Dorado, and Yuba Counties. It is an open seat and Republicans hold a 7-point registration advantage.
