Portantino Endorsed In the 25th SD
The Anthony Portantino for State Senate campaign proudly announced the endorsement of the Stonewall Democratic Club. Stonewall was founded in 1975 and is the leading Democratic voice for the LGBT community and its straight allies in California. Stonewall's endorsement continues Portantino's unprecedented momentum and support from grassroots organizations in and serving the 25th SD. In March he had garnered the support of the Stonewall Young Dems.
"Stonewall has one of the most discerning endorsement processes and it is quite an honor to have received the recommendation of the endorsement committee and the general membership. I'm very honored to have earned the trust of my friends in the club," added Portantino.
Portantino's district support is strong and consistent
