Mike Aguirre called Tuesday evening and said he just secured the endorsement of the San Diego County Democratic Party at the party’s central committee meeting.
Aguirre said Tuesday’s meeting was the third time he’s presented to the committee. He said he sent committee members a document outlining in detail his position on various issues facing the city, and that he won the committee over tonight.
“I’m very proud of the committee for standing up for taxpayers and for labor,” Aguirre said. “I think that says something really positive.”
Aguirre’s key endorsement comes after his opponent, Jan Goldsmith, recently unveiled a string of supporters.
Goldsmith announced recently that he has the endorsement of Councilman Ben Hueso and this week the judge rolled out endorsements from a key Latina activist, Rachel Ortiz, and from the board of directors of the Retired Fire and Police Association, Inc., a group that represents retired public safety officials in San Diego.
