Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich endorses George Radanovich for the State Senate
MARIPOSA, CA – – Today, the former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Newt Gingrich, made a rare endorsement in a state legislative race, officially endorsing Republican George Radanovich in the 4th Senate District.

“Newt Gingrich and his Contract With America brought an end to four decades of entrenched Democratic Party control of the House of Representatives,” said Radanovich. “It is an honor to have been part of that Republican revolution that changed Congress and to have Newt’s endorsement in my campaign for the State Senate and efforts to change Sacramento.”

The Gingrich endorsement comes on the heels of the announcement last week that House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy was endorsing Radanovich, who now has the official support of both the former Speaker and future Speaker of the House of Representatives.

George Radanovich is a Republican and former U.S. Representative, small-business owner and winemaker. He has served as an elected member of the U.S. House of Representatives representing our area and as President of the California Fresh Fruit Association. In Congress, Radanovich was a fierce advocate for California’s agricultural, natural resource and tourism industries.

The 4th Senate District is located in the valley, foothills and mountains of Eastern California and is split between the whole counties of Alpine, Amador, Calaveras, El Dorado, Inyo, Mariposa, Mono, Stanislaus, Tuolumne and portions of Madera, Merced, Nevada, and Placer counties.
