By: Jamie Beutler, Chair Emeritus, California Democratic Party Rural Caucus
It was my honor to serve as Chair of the Rural Caucus for 14 years. I am devoted to electing Democrats who represent rural values and give a voice to our varied communities. This year, I am proud to support Jessica Morse for Congress.
Jessica will fight for our community. She has deep roots here and will listen to our neighbors to find what’s right for us. She has the experience needed to get things done for our community in the federal government. She knows the intricacies of the federal budget and will be able to push forward projects like rural broadband access, healthcare, education and fire prevention.
I have been disappointed to see negativity directed towards Jessica. As party leaders, I urge us to stand together, focus on the real issue at hand: defeating Tom McClintock and bringing real representation back to our community. We can only defeat McClintock if we remain united as a party. As we all learned from 2016, we must stay devoted to truth and electing leaders who inspire with their positive vision for our community.
Her positive campaign is yet another reason why I am supporting Jessica. When I asked her how she intended to respond to the negativity, her response was; “I did not get into this race to bash other Democratic women, and I encourage my supporters to refrain from negative responses.”
That is the kind of courage and leadership we need in CD-4!
Jessica Morse and her campaign are committed to staying positive and bringing new people into the fold. And they have the team, resources, grassroots energy, and vision needed to win in November.

I am proud to support Jessica Morse for Congress, and I hope you will join me.
