Orange County Assemblyman Chuck DeVore Announces Support of Van Tran for 34th Senate District

(Orange County) - Assemblyman Chuck DeVore, a conservative leader in Orange County, announced his endorsement of Van Tran for the 34th Senate District.

“We need more conservative voices to help put an end to the irresponsible policies coming out of Sacramento,” said DeVore. “Van’s experience and reputation gives Republicans a perfect opportunity to win this seat and help California get back on the path of fiscal responsibility.”

Currently held by Democrat Joe Dunn, the 34th Senate District has seen a dramatic swing in voter registration over the past 2 years, with a difference of less than 4,000 voters between Republican and Democrat registration.

“Assemblyman DeVore is widely regarded as one of the most principled legislators in Sacramento,” commented Tran. “I’m honored to have his support and encouraged about the opportunity to have a more balanced Senate.”

In December Assemblyman Tran formed an exploratory committee to evaluate the viability of a run of the 34th Senate District. The committee is co-chaired by Congressman Dana Rohrabacher and former California Republican Party chairs Shawn Steel and Michael Schroeder.
