Sonoma County Democratic Party endorsements

October 2, 2020

The Sonoma County Democratic Party (SCDP) announced its endorsements of candidates in local races, the culmination of a two-month, rules-driven process, designed to treat everyone equally, from an incumbent to a first-time candidate for office.

"Endorsing candidates and ballot measures is one of the most important things the Sonoma County Democratic Party does in an election year," says Sonoma County Democratic Party Chair Pat Sabo.

Members of the SCDP’s Central Committee and Democratic Clubs form interviewing committees, which represent each of the five districts in the county. These committees, checking frequently with the Office of Voter Registration for new candidates, formally invite each Democratic candidate to fill out an application for SCDP endorsement.

For two weeks, committee Chairs conduct interviews, and then submit recommendations at one of SCDP’s monthly, public meetings, where these candidates are discussed and debated, and must receive a two-thirds majority to pass.

Please find, below, the SCDP’s list of endorsements for the November 3, 2020 election.
