The Fresno County Democratic Central Committee has not endorsed any candidate in this race.


I’m so proud to announce that John Burton, former State Senator and CA Democratic Party Chair, has endorsed my campaign for Lt. Governor.

“Eleni Kounalakis has the dedication and vision necessary to fight for all Californians and lead the way to a better and stronger California. As Lieutenant Governor, Eleni will work to lower the cost of housing, make higher education more affordable, and defend California’s values of equality and diversity. I am proud to support Eleni for Lieutenant Governor.” – Former State Senator John Burton

Burton joins U.S. Senator Kamala Harris; Phil Angelides, former CA Democratic Party Chair and State Treasurer; Christine Pelosi, Chair of the CA Democratic Party Women’s Caucus; Norma Alcala, Vice Chair of the CA Democratic Party’s Chicano Latino Caucus; Susan Rowe, Chief Vice Chair of the CA Democratic Party’s Rural Caucus; Amy Champ, Regional Director, Region 4; and so many activists and leaders up and down the state.

My first job after business school was with the Democratic Party in 1992 when we elected two women to the U.S. Senate and flipped the state from red to blue.

All my life I have supported progressive and democratic candidates and causes, and as Lt. Governor, I will fight hard to advance our economy to make sure it works for everyone, create more affordable homes so families can stay in California, lower the cost of higher education, and protect our values and diversity.

Thank you for your continuous encouragement and support for this campaign.
