Congressman Tom McClintock Endorses Sheriff Scott Jones for Congress
(Sacramento, CA) – Sacramento County Sheriff Scott Jones today announced that he has secured the endorsement of Congressman Tom McClintock in his race for California’s 3rd Congressional District.
Congressman Tom McClintock is a proven conservative leader who has served California’s historic gold country in Congress since 2009, representing a majority of the counties in the new 3rd district. Prior to his election to Congress, McClintock served 22 years in the California legislature, where he became one of its most recognized conservative leaders. He is a standard-bearer for conservatives in Washington in the fight for government accountability, ending wasteful government spending, and lower taxes.
“With 33 years in law enforcement, and 12 years as the “Law and Order” Sheriff of Sacramento County, Scott Jones has proven himself to be the real conservative in the 3rd Congressional District. Sheriff Jones is the only candidate that I trust to stand up to radical Left who wants to “Defund the Police". He knows first-hand the cost of unchecked illegal immigration on our communities, I can count on Sheriff Jones to be along my side as we secure the border and stop the flow of illegal drugs into our country. He has my full support.” - Congressman Tom McClintock
Congressman McClintock’s endorsement joins those of Congressman Doug LaMalfa, Congressman Darrell Issa, 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.
