Former Rep. Loretta Sanchez announced Monday that she will make another run for supervisor in Orange County’s Third District in 2020.
Last month, Sanchez lost her bid to fill the seat vacated by Todd Spitzer after he was elected District Attorney halfway through his four-year supervisorial term.
Don Wagner won with 42 percent of the vote. Sanchez, who was the only Democrat in the race, came in second with 37.1 percent of the vote.
“When we defeated (longtime congressman) Bob Dornan in 1996, the Orange County Democratic Party was still struggling to find a foothold in my hometown,” Sanchez said. “For 20 years, I served as the only Democrat in our congressional delegation. Together we have created a strong community of shared values, and cultivated leaders that won seven out of seven congressional seats in 2018. We have also made giant strides at the city, county and state levels.”
Wagner said he would continue “doing my job focusing on the issues in the Third District and put together a re-election effort that highlights the differences between my limited government, fiscal conservative approach to governing and the failed big-government approach of anyone the other side puts up against me.”
