Santa Clarita, CA – Former Assemblywoman Suzette Valladares, and Republican candidate for the 23rd State Senate District, will report as of June 30th, raising nearly $272,000 since announcing her campaign in February.

“I feel blessed and thankful for the support from this district, region, and state. Add to that the endorsements our campaign is receiving from local leaders in the Santa Clarita, Antelope Valley, and Victor Valleys, as well as from State Senator Scott Wilk, Assemblyman Tom Lackey, and Los Angeles County Supervisor Kathryn Barger, and I’m energized to keep the momentum. I know Republicans can hold this seat.”

Democrat registration is 40.7%, Republican is 29.9%, with non-Partisan/Other making up the balance. In 2022, GOP gubernatorial candidate Brian Dahle out-polled Gavin Newsom in the district by 7.1%.
