SAN DIEGO (CNS) - District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis picked up another endorsement Monday in her bid for the mayor's office -- from Sheriff Bill Gore.
"Bonnie is the only candidate with the executive management skills and leadership to keep San Diego moving in the right direction," Gore said.
He said he has worked closely with Dumanis on major criminal cases over the past eight years.
"Bonnie isn't afraid to make the tough choices and hold people accountable," Gore said. "At the same time, she's shown great compassion and extraordinary dedication to victims' rights."
The two usually heap praise on each other at public events.
"I'm honored to receive Sheriff Gore's support," Dumanis said. "He's been a public safety partner for nearly a decade, working with the District Attorney's Office and other law enforcement agencies at the local, state and federal level to keep San Diegans safe."
Dumanis has also been endorsed by Mayor Jerry Sanders, Councilman Kevin Faulconer and Supervisor Ron Roberts, among others, for the June 5, 2012, primary election. Sanders is being termed-out.
Her major opponents include Councilman Carl DeMaio; Rep. Bob Filner, D-San Diego; and Assemblyman Nathan Fletcher, R-San Diego, who has been endorsed by Pete Wilson, the former San Diego mayor, California governor and senator.
