TheLiberalOC has confirmed that Sharon Quirk Silva, a candidate for AD-65, has withdrawn her endorsement of Jordan Brandman for CD-46. Quirk-Silva and her campaign confirmed this via text message last night and the campaign has promised us a more detailed statement today.
While Quirk-Silva’s reasons for the withdrawn endorsement are her own, it’s believed that she was under intense pressure to yank the endorsement from activists upset with Brandman’s motion to restart districting maps in Anaheim. Quirk-Silva joins Valerie Amezcua, a trustee with the Santa Ana Unified School District, as the only two members from Brandman’s original endorsement list to withdraw their endorsements.
Both Quirk-Silva and Amezcua have dually endorsed former state senator Lou Correa as well.
