Modesto Bee endorses Dave Jones for California’s Attorney General

For Immediate Release

Contact: Parke Skelton



The Modesto Bee Thursday endorsed Dave Jones for attorney general in California, while also lending its support for Xavier Becerra.

The Bee’s editorial board pointed out that California’s attorney general is now a critical position due to the consistent onslaught of President Donald Trump against the state. The state must fight back, and its charge will be led by the attorney general.

The endorsement makes strong mention of Jones’ “distinguished record,” as well as his commitment to “defending the state against federal overreach.”

The Modesto Bee also lauded Jones for his efforts as insurance commissioner, which have greatly centered around protecting policyholders affected by natural disasters, such as last year’s California wildfires.

Said the Bee of the Republican candidates for attorney general – retired El Dorado County Judge Steven Bailey and Los Angeles attorney Eric Early – “We can’t recommend either.”

Thursday’s endorsement of Jones comes less than a week after the Sacramento Bee threw its support behind Jones and Becerra as well. Said the Sacramento Bee of Jones, “He also has experience running a state agency, a side of the job arguably new to Becerra.”
