President Obama has endorsed Rep. Scott Peters' bid for a third term in the 52nd Congressional District, the San Diego Democrat's campaign announced Thursday morning.
"I know Scott Peters and the people of his district could not have a better representative in the U.S. Congress fighting for their security, prosperity, and economic opportunity," Obama said in a statement. "Scott Peters is the real deal - a thoughtful, independent, hard-working leader who delivers for San Diego."
Peters received 58.9% of the primary vote. The second-place finisher, Republican businesswoman Denise Gitsham, got 16.2%
