October 25, 2017
San Diego, CA – Today, the Paul Kerr for Congress campaign proudly announces that United States Congressman Scott Peters (CA-52) is endorsing Democrat and Navy veteran Paul Kerr for Congress in California's 49th district. Congressman Peters represents a neighboring district and is regarded as one of the most bipartisan members of Congress.
"Paul has lived in San Diego County for over 43 years and grew up in a family that had to work hard to make ends meet; he's personally lived the struggles many Americans face today. I've known Paul for many years and I know he'll be a fighter for working families. Paul will aggressively protect our environment, and work hard to ensure our veterans get the health care and services they've earned,” said Congressman Peters. "I strongly endorse my fellow Democrat and friend, Paul Kerr in his campaign for Congress, and I look forward to working with him in Washington on the issues facing our country today.”
"I'm honored to have Congressman Peters' support with this campaign,” said Paul Kerr. "Rep. Peters is a San Diego problem-solver, plain and simple. He's been a great friend to our nation's veterans and a strong supporter of middle-class values. I look forward to working closely with Congressman Peters on the critical issues facing our nation, including health care, education, immigration and the environment.”
Paul was raised in a middle-class community by working-class parents. He's lived in San Diego County for over 43 years. He's an enlisted, Vietnam-era Navy Veteran, who served on a destroyer out of San Diego that patrolled the coast of Vietnam shortly after that war ended. Having worked his way through college, Paul is a proud alumnus of San Diego State University. For the past 20 years, Paul has been an owner of a successful San Diego-based business.
California's 49th Congressional District stretches from UCSD in San Diego County to Dana Point in the southern region of Orange County.
