Congressman Tom McClintock, Doug LaMalfa and Darrell Issa Back Sheriff Jones
Sheriff Scott Jones Endorsed by Conservative Congressional Champions

(Sacramento, CA) – Sacramento County Sheriff Scott Jones today announced endorsements from Conservative Congressmen Tom McClintock, Doug LaMalfa, and Darrell Issa.

"It is significant that conservative Members of Congress, Tom McClintock, Doug LaMalfa and Darrell Issa have strongly endorsed Sheriff Scott Jones for Congress in the new CA-3 district. McClintock and LaMalfa currently represent nearly 80% of this district and have served this rural California region for nearly a decade," said Jones Campaign Strategist Duane Dichiara.
 
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. 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 the 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 Doug LaMalfa is a fourth-generation rice farmer and lifelong Northern California resident who has served in Congress since 2013, previously served in the California State Senate from 2010-2012, and in the State Assembly from 2002-2010. Congressman LaMalfa currently represents all or part of 11 counties including the counties of Placer, Nevada, Plumas, and Sierra that will be included in the new Congressional District 3, in which Sheriff Scott Jones is running for election.
 
“Sheriff Scott Jones is hands down the best candidate in the new 3rd Congressional District. He has been a conservative champion taking action to protect individual liberty against government overreach. He’s taken a stand and led the fight against illegal immigration and crime. From pushing back against rioters and ensuring those who break the law are held accountable Sheriff Jones is what we need more of in Congress- someone who fights. I know both Republicans, and I strongly endorse Scott Jones for Congress.” – Congressman Doug LaMalfa
 
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
 
The Congressmen’s endorsement joins those of 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.
