ANAHIEM, CA — Republican businessman Harry Sidhu announced today that he will be a candidate for the State Assembly in the 68th district, which is currently held by Assemblyman Don Wagner.
“I fully expect Assemblyman Wagner to be successful in his campaign for State Senate, which means the 68th district Special Election will be this year,” said Sidhu. “I am honored that so many community leaders I respect have asked me to run for the Assembly when the seat opens up. If elected, I will use my experience in business and local government to work for conservative policies that help create economic growth and jobs, limit state government spending and keep taxes down.”
Sidhu announced that Senate Republican Leader Bob Huff, Stephen Batcheller (Partner, Panattoni Development Company, Inc.), and Larry Lake (President, Lake Development Group, Inc.) have endorsed his candidacy and will serve on his Steering Committee.
“Harry Sidhu will bring a track record of accomplishment, energy and ideas to the Assembly and the state Republican Party,” said Senate Republican Leader Bob Huff. “He will also be the first Republican of Indian heritage to be elected to the Legislature.”
