San Diego City Councilman and mayoral hopeful Carl DeMaio obtained an official endorsement from the Republican Party of San Diego County on Saturday, beating out fellow Republican candidates Nathan Fletcher and Bonnie Dumanis at an endorsement meeting earlier today.

Endorsement required a two-thirds majority vote from endorsement committee members, a hurdle DeMaio cleared in the first round of voting.

"I appreciate the endorsement of the Republican Party and look forward to earning the support of Democrats and Independent voters who understand the fundamental need for reform at City Hall," DeMaio said in a party release this afternoon.

"This vote was a reflection of growing grassroots enthusiasm for DeMaio, and enables us to advance our message of fiscal reform in a unified manner," added party chair Tony Krvaric.

DeMaio will now receive aid from the party in the form of volunteer efforts and financial assistance for his campaign.

You prefer Dumanis and/or Fletcher? The GOP isn't going to endorse a lifelong Dem/lib like Filner. Tell us who you prefer that the GOP could back.
