The campaign office of Ret. Judge Tue Phan is proud to announce that Judge Tue Phan has obtained the endorsement of the Central Committee of The Republican Party of Contra Costa as Party standard bearer candidate for the Congressional District 11th.
The endorsement arrives at 7:30 pm on March 9, 2014 after an hour-long debate between two candidates, Virginia Fuller and Judge Tue Phan, at the meeting hall of Massimo Ristorante in Walnut Creek. Virginia Fuller ran in the 2010 and 2012 elections as a Republican. In 2012 she received 87,879 votes, about over 30% of the votes but lost to incumbent Democrat George Miller.
The debate was monitored by former two-term Congressman Bill Baker and covered the Affordable Care Act, Immigration reform, national spending, and unemployment. Following the debate, the Central Committee conducted a close-door deliberation and voted to endorse Judge Tue Phan as the Republican candidate.
After accepting and thanking the Central Committee for the endorsement, Judge Tue Phan praised Virginia Fuller for her articulate debate and her admirable strength in the last few campaigns.
Why I am running for Congress
I am a retired immigration judge and a long-time resident of Contra Costa County. As someone who has benefited from America’s educational system and opportunities, I seek to strengthen our middle class, the backbone of our country. As someone who escaped from totalitarianism, I treasure our democracy and pledge to put our common good above partisan rancor and special interests. For these reasons, I am running for the 11th congressional district.
As a congressman, I will work to restore fiscal discipline, secure Social Security and Medicare, improve health care, invest in education, secure our borders and forge a humane immigration policy.
I am asking for the honor of your support. If you have any questions, please call me at 925-736-1071. Thank you.
