ROSEVILLE, Calif. – Today, the Morse for Congress campaign announced the endorsement of Placer County Supervisor Jennifer Montgomery. First elected in 2008, Montgomery is one of only two county-level Democratic officials in Placer. Her support is the most high-profile endorsement to date in the county, which comprises over 40% of the vote in the 4th Congressional District and will be a major battleground in the race against Rep. Tom McClintock.

"As an nearly 30-year resident of the 4th Congressional District, I am endorsing Jessica Morse for Congress and working to elect her to be our next representative in Washington," said Montgomery. "As a District 4 resident herself, Jessica understands the complex issues affecting the communities of our district, including universal ones like climate change and local issues like better forest management and support for rural concerns. Unlike the incumbent, her focus will be on improving health care, economic opportunities, and education for all residents. Jessica is ready to serve, and I hope voters will join me in supporting her on June 5th."

"It is an honor to have Jennifer's endorsement in this race, and I look forward to taking action on our shared priorities of protecting Placer County's precious natural resources and bringing accountable representation back to the community," said Morse. "Her support adds to the growing grassroots strength that will carry us over the finish line in November."

Montgomery represents the 5th district on the Board of Supervisors, encompassing Auburn and the North Shore of Lake Tahoe. In the county, Morse previously received endorsements from the Mid-Placer Democratic Club, the Placer Women Democrats, and Charlie Brown, the former Vice President of the Roseville Police Association and the 2008 Democratic challenger to McClintock. She also received the California Democratic Party's official endorsement at the spring convention with 65% of the vote.
