No on Prop. 48 Campaign Continues to Acquire Powerful Endorsements 

LOS ANGELES, CA— With less than a week left until the November 4 election, the No on Prop. 48 campaign has received back-to-back endorsements from federal elected leaders. Just yesterday Congressman Jeff Denham announced his opposition to off-reservation gaming and today, another eminent endorsement came from Congressman Doug LaMalfa. 


Congressman LaMalfa represents California’s 1st Congressional district, which is located in the northern portion of the state and encompasses the counties of Siskiyou, Modoc, Shasta, Lassen, Tehama, Butte, Plumas, Sierra, Nevada, and parts of Glenn and Placer Counties. LaMalfa, a fourth generation farmer and business owner, has been an outspoken advocate for agriculture, farms, and protecting local businesses. He is also a strong proponent for protecting California’s water supply. He understands that Prop. 48 is a bad deal for California’s businesses and environment.


“I strongly oppose Prop. 48 because it undermines the promise of limited gaming in California,” said Congressman LaMalfa. “Local economies, small businesses and our way of life will suffer if unlimited Las Vegas-style casinos come to every city and rural town in the state. This proposition must be stopped and I urge California voters to join me next Tuesday and vote No on Prop. 48.”


 “We are incredibly pleased to have the support from Congressman LaMalfa,” said Cheryl Schmit, Director of Stand Up for California and proponent of the No on Prop. 48 campaign. “As a farmer, business owner, and federal elected leader, he understands the complexity of the negative impact that Prop. 48 will have on our state. His support gives our campaign a final push of momentum as we approach the finish line.”

In a nearly unprecedented action, almost every major newspaper in the state has endorsed the No on Prop. 48 campaign including: the San Francisco Chronicle, Fresno Bee, Modesto Bee, Merced Sun-Star, Sacramento Bee, San Diego Union-Tribune, San Jose Mercury News, Orange County Register, Contra Costa Times, Oakland Tribune, Bakersfield Californian, Napa Valley Register, Victorville Daily Press, Chico Enterprise Record, Paradise Post, L.A. Daily News, Long Beach Press-Telegram, Daily Breeze, Paradise Star-News, Whittier Daily News, San Gabriel Valley Tribune, San Bernardino Sun, Inland Valley Daily Bulletin, and Redlands Daily Facts newspapers.

Additionally, the No on Prop. 48 campaign has continued to gain critical momentum after receiving several essential endorsements in the last few weeks including: the Women’s Environmental Watch, Nisei Farmers League, California Farm Bureau Federation, Napa and Marin Counties Boards of Supervisors, California State Senator Jim Nielsen, and U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein.
