Lois Capps, Bill Monning pick up endorsements from Tri-Counties Central Labor Council

State Senate candidate Bill Monning and Rep. Lois Capps, both Central Coast Democrats, have picked up endorsements for next year’s election from the Tri-Counties Central Labor Council.

Capps is running for reelection in the 24th Congressional District. Republican Abel Maldonado, a former Assemblyman, state senator and lieutenant governor, has announced that he will run against Capps.

Monning, an Assemblyman, is seeking the 17th District state Senate seat now held by Republican Sam Blakeslee.

“These candidates have a proven track record of fighting for good jobs," said Marilyn Valenzuela, executive secretary-treasurer of the Tri-Counties Central Labor Council. “We need their continued leadership in California.”
