Sedgwick Pulls Away From GOP Field With Endorsement from Harkey, a Former Board of Equalization and Assemblywoman
ORANGE COUNTY — October 24 — Don Sedgwick’s campaign for Congressional District 45 announced today the endorsement from Diane Harkey, a stalwart Orange County conservative.
Harkey, a successful businesswoman, previously served as a taxpayer advocate on the state’s Board of Equalization. Before that, she served in the state Assembly and as Mayor of Dana Point. In 2018, she was the Republican nominee in a neighboring Congressional district.
“I’m honored to endorse Mayor Don Sedgwick for Congress. Don’s impressive business background, community service, education and local government experience make him the perfect candidate to represent us in the 45th Congressional District.
Under his leadership on the Board of the Saddleback Valley Unified School District, and now as Mayor of Laguna Hills, he has worked diligently to ensure Orange County can educate, train, attract and retain the young talent we will need to hire now and in the future. Don will be a strong, principled conservative voice for our families and the business community.”
