Larry Elder Endorses Sheriff Scott Jones for Congress
(Elder formed the Elder for America PAC to Support “Tough on Crime” Congressional Candidates)
(Sacramento, CA) – Sacramento County Sheriff Scott Jones today announced that he has secured the endorsement of conservative champion, Larry Elder, in his race for California’s 3rd Congressional District.
“Sheriff Scott Jones is a tried-and-true conservative who has fought the tyranny of liberal Democrats’ open border, anti-law enforcement agenda throughout his time as Sacramento County Sheriff. He’s successfully stood up to the Defund the Police mob and won’t back down from the fight to secure our border, clean up crime on our streets, and repel the 'woke' agenda threatening our American freedom. He has my wholehearted endorsement.” – Larry Elder
Larry Elder’s endorsement joins those of conservative leaders Congressman Tom McClintock, Congressman Doug LaMalfa, Congressman Darrell Issa, the California State Sheriffs’ Association, Gun Owners of America, Crime Victims United of California 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.
