Orange County, Calf.- – After falling fewer than 2,600 votes short of victory in the November 3rd, Statewide General Election, Diane Dixon announced her decision to seek election to the State Assembly again in 2022 and announced strong support from Republican Leaders.
“I’ve spent the days since the election watching our State continue to mismanage this pandemic while Californians and the people of this community are struggling. Now there is news that the EDD has allowed hardened criminals to dupe our government out of hundreds of millions of dollars while people out of work are still awaiting their claims to be processed. I can’t help but believe I can provide a voice for our community to demand accountability, get our state back on track and on the path to economic recovery. I’m running to finish what I started and that is to give my community a common-sense voice in the State Legislature. For that reason, I’m all-in for 2022 and will seek election to the State Assembly once again.”
Assembly Republican Leader Marie Waldron commented on Diane Dixon’s announcement stating, “Diane Dixon is a close friend and built an impressive campaign raising $1 million in 2020. I am very excited that she is running again in 2022 as Diane is the type of candidate that gives us the best chance of gaining seats in the legislature in consecutive election cycles. She has the team and infrastructure already built to hit the ground running on her way to victory in 2022.”
Additionally, Dixon announced receiving the endorsement of the overlapping Orange County Supervisor and Congresswoman-Elect, Michelle Steel, “Diane Dixon is the best candidate for the State Assembly and she has my full support,” said Steel. “It is important to have a like-minded individual at the state level that I can count on to work on the issues that matter to our community. I know Diane Dixon is that candidate and I urge everyone to support Diane Dixon for State Assembly.”
In the November 3rd Presidential Election Diane Dixon received more than 131,000 votes and narrowly missed defeating well-funded Democrat Cottie Petrie-Norris by 2,584 votes.
