*** No candidate for Attorney General has been endorsed by the CDP ***
We are only five days away from the June 5th – Election Day.
And here is why the Attorney General race matters a lot.
Californians have a distinct choice as to who will protect the state against the Trump administration, undertake criminal justice reform, and who will best accomplish the many tasks that are vital to the office of Attorney General.
There are sharp differences between the two Democratic candidates in the race – California Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones and appointed Attorney General Xavier Becerra.
Will you forward this email to 5 of your friends and family to inform them of the key distinctions between Jones and Becerra?
❏ Xavier Becerra funded his campaign by accepting donations from insurance, tobacco and oil companies. Dave Jones has not taken one cent from insurance, tobacco or oil companies. Unlike Becerra, he has signed the pledge to continue to not accept any oil money. Xavier Becerra refused to sign the pledge and has taken $14,600 from Phillips Petroleum and $7,300 from Chevron.
❏ Dave Jones opposes the death penalty. Xavier Becerra supports the death penalty.
❏ Xavier Becerra has failed to collect guns from ten thousand Californians who are under court order to surrender them because they are convicted felons, too mentally ill to have a gun, or subject to a domestic violence restraining order. Dave Jones will make it a priority to get all 10,000 to surrender the guns they have illegally, stand up to the NRA, and fight for gun safety.
❏ Xavier Becerra did not practice law for 26 years prior to his appointment. Dave Jones has 30 years of legal experience fighting for California’s families.
❏ The Attorney General manages over 4,000 lawyers and other personnel. Dave Jones is the only candidate who has led a law enforcement agency for over seven years. Xavier Becerra has never led a state agency, let alone a law enforcement agency, before he was appointed as Attorney General. Xavier Becerra has surrounded himself at the Attorney General’s office with political appointees not licensed to practice law in California. His Chief Deputy, the number two ranking official in the Attorney General’s office, is not licensed to practice law in California. Dave Jones has not as Insurance Commissioner and will not surround himself with political operatives whose role is to insulate the Attorney General from tough decisions.
No wonder the San Jose Mercury News and East Bay Times call Xavier Becerra “a huge disappointment”
