Carson City Councilmember Mike Gipson on Monday June 16, announced that he has received the endorsement of Congresswoman Janice Hahn in his campaign for State Assembly in District 64. Congresswoman Hahn represents the 44th Congressional District and is a key endorsement in the 64th District - she currently represents or has represented almost all voters living in the assembly district.
“Mike Gipson is a trusted leader who has made an enormous positive impact in our region,” said Hahn. “I’ve known Mike for over two decades and I’ve been consistently impressed by his integrity, his tireless work ethic and his deep dedication to our community. I’m extraordinarily pleased to offer Mike my endorsement and full support in his positive and issue focused campaign for State Assembly.”
“I am honored to have the endorsement of Congresswoman Janice Hahn,” Gipson said.
“She is a strong and deeply committed advocate for working families, seniors, and young people in our region. I’m thrilled to have her support and look forward to continuing to work with her to expand access to opportunity in our community.”
The endorsement follows quickly after Gipson exceeded all expectations in the four-candidate June 3rd primary – securing 51.2% of the vote, substantially more than double his next closest opponent. Gipson’s campaign has won widespread support from across the district and has been endorsed by Congresswoman Maxine Waters, Board of Equalization Chair Jerome Horton, the California Teachers Association, the California Democratic Party, the California Legislative Black Caucus, State Senator Alex Padilla and Assemblymember Raul Bocanegra, and a growing and diverse base of support including local municipal leaders, labor unions, regional law enforcement, and state legislators – including Assemblymember Isadore Hall, who currently represents the 64th Assembly District.
