Former Los Angeles Controller
"I know Wendy will fight and deliver for the people of the 33rd Congressional District," Newsom said in a statement released Wednesday by the Greuel campaign.
"She's spent 20 years in the trenches solving problems for everyday families," Newsom continued, citing Greuel's work in the administrations of President Clinton and former L.A. Mayor Tom Bradley as well as her stint as city controller.
Greuel is one of the better known candidates who have been jumping into the race to succeed Rep.
Greuel was the first to get into the race, followed quickly by state Sen.
The race for the strongly Democratic district has also drawn several other members of that party as well as one Republican and two independents so far.
Because there will be no incumbent on the June 3 primary ballot, the candidate filing period has been extended to March 12.
