Oceanside, CA – – Today the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association announced that have endorsed Diane Harkey for Congress in California’s 49th District.
The key endorsement from the state’s largest and most respected taxpayer organization further solidifies Harkey as the leading Republican candidate to replace Congressman Darrell Issa, who is not seeking reelection.
“As a state lawmaker and Board of Equalization member, Diane Harkey has always been a champion for taxpayers. That’s why the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association endorses her for Congress,” said Jon Coupal, President of the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association.
Harkey enjoys strong Republican support in the campaign for the 49th including U.S. Representative Darrell Issa and both the San Diego and Orange County Republican Parties.
As a member of the California Board of Equalization, Diane Harkey is the highest-ranking elected Republican woman in the state. She represents 9.5 million taxpayers in Orange, San Diego as well as several other counties and won her election for the Board of Equalization with over 61% of the vote.
Diane Harkey graduated Cum Laude with a degree in Economics from the University of California, Irvine and enjoyed a successful 30-year career in corporate finance and banking prior to entering public service. Working in good and bad economic climates with individuals, small-business owners, and leaders of publicly-traded companies helped form the pragmatic business perspective that Harkey will bring to Congress.
