Dan Logue To Run for Vacant 4th District Senate Seat
North State Assemblyman and Chief Minority Whip Dan Logue today formally announced that he is a candidate to replace former 4th District Senator Doug LaMalfa.
Late Friday, State Sen. Doug LaMalfa announced his resignation from the Senate in anticipation of his Congressional race. It is anticipated that the special election to fill the seat will be consolidated with the November General Election. A small business owner and staunch opponent of government waste and over-regulation, Dan Logue has served two terms in the Assembly where he has taken the lead in restoring California’s beleaguered economy.
About Logue, Congressman Tom McClintock stated, “Dan Logue is one of the great forces in the Assembly, Californians could not possibly have a more fearless or energetic defender against over-reaching bureaucracy than Dan Logue.”
Logue has clearly established himself as California’s leading voice to revitalize the economy and keep jobs and businesses in California. The National Federation of Independent Business has awarded Logue a perfect score based on his voting record and support of small business. His widespread efforts have also drawn the attention of media outlets across the nation, including the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, FOX News, CNBC and the Los Angeles Times
“For nearly four years it has been my distinct honor to serve the voters of the North State In the Legislature,” stated Logue. “Since Senator LaMalfa announced he was resigning, I have been inundated with calls from friends and supporters from throughout the North State encouraging me to run for the State Senate. After much prayer and discussion with my wife and family, I am confident that with their counsel and support that in the State Senate we can continue to be effective in advocating for the North State and for fixing California’s broken economy.”
“I know that California’s economy and California families are struggling, businesses are leaving and taking jobs with them.”
As the Chairman of the Caucus Task Force on Jobs and Economic Recovery Logue has defined the greatest challenge confronting California. “The challenge of our time is to build bipartisan consensus that leads to real reforms. Reforms, which reduce regulatory and tax burdens, encourages business and job growth and restores our economy. I have a record of doing just that.”
“As a small business owner for 30 years, I understand the challenges that working families are facing in California and I think about them every day,” stated Logue. “I am committed to doing everything I can to fight to restore opportunity, hope and economic prosperity to California.”
