LOOMIS, CA – Former United States Representative of California’s 4th Congressional District, John Doolittle, has announced his endorsement of Rex Hime in his bid for State Senate.
In announcing his support, Congressman Doolittle (ret.) said, “The tax and spend mindset in Sacramento must change. When I represented the district, Rex Hime was always by my side when taxpayers were under threat. He knows how to fight against tax increases and he will continue to do so in the State Senate.”
Congressman Doolittle served as a member of the United States House of Representatives from 1991 to 2009. And, before being elected to Congress, Doolittle represented California’s 1st Senate District from 1984 to 1991.
Hime has spent 30 years in the private sector fighting tax increases on behalf of California Business Properties Association. He helped create a coalition that successfully stopped efforts to repeal Proposition 13 that would have raised taxes on residents and small businesses by billions of dollars. Most recently, Hime helped lead the campaign to defeat statewide rent control.
Hime is the only candidate in the race who is not a career politician and the only veteran. He is a proud Reagan Republican who not only worked for Ronald Reagan when he was Governor, but was appointed by then President Reagan to protect property rights in Lake Tahoe. Hime has spent decades volunteering and supporting non-profit causes in the greater Sacramento area. He has served on the board of the Greater Sacramento Valley Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and as past President of the Cal Aggie Alumni Association.
Rex lives in Loomis with his wife Gwyn. The special election to fill the vacant Senate seat will be held on March 26.
