Eureka, Ca., (KIEM)- Humboldt Progressive Democrats are calling for Congressman Jared Huffman, State Senator Mike McGuire and Assemblyman Jim Wood to be stripped of their delegate status.
The group claims statewide frustration has grown over democratic representatives endorsing candidates from other parties. All three politicians in this case publicly supported Ryan Sundberg’s re-election campaign to retain his seat on the Humboldt County Board of Supervisors as the fifth district representative. Steve Madrone was the Democratic challenger.
In a statement released Saturday, the group announced: “The Humboldt Progressive Democrats unanimously approved a credentials challenge recently sent to the California Democratic Party (CDP). Citing the violation of CDP bylaws prohibiting endorsement of non-Democrats, the letter was signed by Executive Board members Robert Shearer (AD-02), Cullen Tiernan (AD-18 and Veteran’s Caucus Chair), and Tania Bhatia (AD-61).”
