Tim Sheridan Criticizes Ken Calvert For Failing to Endorse Letter Written by 50 GOP Foreign Policy Experts Denouncing Donald Trump’s Candidacy – August 10, 2016
Tim Sheridan, the California Democratic Candidate for the 42nd Congressional District, criticized 23 ½ year incumbent Congressman Ken Calvert yesterday for failing to endorse the letter written by fifty Republican national security experts denouncing Donald Trump’s presidential candidacy.
“This was no run-on-the-mill letter,” Sheridan said. “These individuals have worked with GOP presidents for more than a quarter century and have serious questions about Donald Trump’s fitness for the office. Mr. Calvert has a duty to weigh in on the issue,” Sheridan added.
The signatories of the letter include Michael Chertoff, the head of Homeland Security under George W. Bush; Michael Hayden, the retired 4-star General and former Director of the NSA; former Ambassador John Negropante, and former Secretary of Homeland Security and Congressman Tom Ridge, among others.
“Those concerned about a Trump presidency are taking steps to sound an alarm that is unprecedented in our country,” Sheridan argued. “But again, Mr. Calvert is on the sidelines with nothing to say. With 23 1/2 years in Congress, he should be a leading voice among the GOP and he isn’t. We can do better.”
California’s 42nd Congressional District, a geographical area shaped like the letter “X.” runs along the I-15 corridor from Eastvale, southeast to Temecula, and northeast along the I-215 and CA-79 corridors to Beaumont. It also includes the communities of Corona, Norco, Lake Elsinore, Wildomar, Murrieta, Menifee, Sun City, Winchester, Homeland, Nuevo and parts of Temecula. Mr. Sheridan lives in Lake Elsinore.
