(San Diego, CA) - California State Senate Minority Leader, Shannon Grove, today announced her endorsement of June Cutter for State Assembly.

Senator Grove has served the state of California as a legislator since 2010. Prior to her election to the State Senate, Senator Grove served as a State Assemblywoman from 2010 to 2016. Senator Grove was the first woman veteran elected to serve in the California Legislature. As a member of the legislature, she has focused on lowering the tax burden on working families and supporting California’s disabled community with additional funding.

“I endorse June Cutter for State Assembly because she will bring a fresh perspective to the table to help fix the growing problems our state faces,” said Senator Grove. “June has shown thoughtful guidance as an executive board member of the California Women’s Leadership Association, and I know she will bring that same principled leadership to Sacramento.”

Senator Grove’s endorsement adds to the growing list of prominent Republicans who have endorsed June for State Assembly. June has already been endorsed by the San Diego County Republican Party, Assembly Republican Leader Marie Waldron, State Senator Brian Jones, San Diego County Supervisor Jim Desmond, San Diego Councilmember Chris Cate, and former San Diego Councilman Carl DeMaio.

“I am honored to accept this endorsement and vote of confidence from Senate Minority Leader Shannon Grove,” said June Cutter. “If elected, I pledge to work tirelessly to ensure that California is a place that can support our children and future generations.”

June is running in the 77th district, a seat currently occupied by newly minted Democrat Brian Maienschein. Maienschein won reelection in November 2018 as a Republican, and publicly re-registered as a Democrat in January.
