Doolittle Endorses Gaines for Assembly; way paved for Gaines victory in 06

Ted Gaines announced last week an endorsement from Representative John T. Doolittle in his bid to succeed retiring Assemblyman Tim Leslie from the 4th Assembly District (Placer, El Dorado, and Sacramento Counties).

Doolittle's endorsement follows on the heels of retired State Senator Rico Oller, who endorsed Gaines in mid-April.

The endorsements of Doolittle and Oller completed the list of Republican officials which have gotten behind Ted. He now has been endorsed by every Republican legislator, both Republican Congressmen that share boundaries with AD 4, and nearly every sitting Republican Supervisor and City Councilmember in all three counties. Ted has also picked up the endorsement of Placer County's Democrat Sheriff, Ed Bonner, and Sacramento County's Republican Sheriff, Lou Blanas.

Barring any surprise candidate that pops up between now and June 2006, expect Gaines to be the next member of the California Assembly from District 4.
