Lone Republican for California Senate District 7 drops out of race
and endorses Steve Glazer
Orinda, CA—The race for California Senate District 7 continues to heat up as the sole Republican Michaela Hertle announced today that she is dropping out of the race and endorsing Democrat Steve Glazer.
“I am endorsing Steve Glazer for California State Senate District 7. Mr. Glazer has proven that he can work with Republicans and Democrats alike to find common sense solutions to our state’s needs”, said Hertle. “He is not beholden to labor or other special interests, as seen by his opposition to BART strikes.”
With Hertle resigning from the race, Glazer faces three other Democratic opponents on the special election ballot. The primary election will be held March 17.
“I’m grateful for Michaela’s support. We both understand that we are Californians first and are committed to putting aside partisan politics for the common good,” said Glazer. “She shares my commitment to bi-partisan problem solving, fiscal responsibility, pension and school reform, and a ban on debilitating BART strikes. Her inspirational leadership is a great example to our leaders in the state capitol.”
Glazer serves as the Mayor of Orinda and a Trustee of the California State University 23-campus system. During his service on the City Council of Orinda, he has balanced ten budgets without ever taking a salary.
“I urge my fellow Republicans to vote for Steve Glazer. “Like me, he is a fiscal conservative. He supports pension reform and school reform.” said Hertle. “We have more commonalities with him than differences and he can win this race.”
