Modesto, CA — Today long time Valley political fixture and former Congressman Tony Coelho announced his support for Sue Zwahlen in the race to defeat Congressman Jeff Denham.
“Sue Zwahlen is exactly what CD 10 needs in Congress. She is a nurse, a school board member and a mother of six, who is ready on day one to tackle the very difficult issues this country faces. Sue has spent a lifetime serving our community and has the breadth and depth of relationships to prove it. Her history of bringing people together and solving problems is just what this district needs in Congress. I truly believe she is the best candidate to defeat Jeff Denham in November, and I am proud to support her,” said Congressman Coelho.
Zwahlen, a Democrat, is running to replace Republican Congressman Jeff Denham in the 10th District, which includes all of Stanislaus County and all or portions of the San Joaquin communities of Manteca, Tracy and Escalon.
“I am so gratified to have earned Congressman Coelho’s support. His long and distinguished history of fighting to make the lives of Valley residents – and all Americans – better makes him a real role model for me. I hope I can live up to his expectations and make him proud of my candidacy and – if I am fortunate enough to be elected – my service in Congress,” said Zwahlen.
