Breaking: Joe Patterson Receives Another Key Endorsement
Board of Equalization Member Ted Gaines Endorses Patterson for State Assembly

Rocklin, Calif. — Joe Patterson continues to receive heavy Republican support in his campaign for the 5th Assembly District and today announced the endorsement of Board of Equalization Member Ted Gaines.

Ted Gaines is currently the highest-ranked Republican elected official in the State of California serving on the Board of Equalization but has long represented the communities of the 5th Assembly District in the State Assembly and the State Senate before being elected to the Board of Equalization.

“I know the communities of this district, they are home to me, and I’ve represented these communities for nearly two decades,” said Ted Gaines. “I know Joe Patterson is the right candidate at the right time to be our next State Assemblyman, I look forward to working closely with Joe to fight on behalf of taxpayers against the out-of-control legislature.”

Patterson is the leading candidate for the open 5th Assembly District, accumulating a strong list of endorsements and is the reported leading fundraiser in the campaign. Just last week Patterson announced receiving the rare Pre-Primary endorsement of the Placer County Republican Party.

The newly drawn 5th Assembly District population is split between Placer and El Dorado Counties. For more information about Joe’s campaign, including the latest news please visit
