Diane has a proven record of success in the private and the public sector,” said New Majority Orange County Chairman Steve Craig, a resident of the 74th District. “Serving as Newport Beach Mayor and City Council Member, Diane has been the voice of reason, delivering budget surpluses, paying down pension liabilities, and being tough on crime. Diane is the kind of voice we need more of Sacramento.”
“I am honored to have earned the endorsement of the New Majority, the largest Republican donor group in California,” said Dixon. “I thank New Majority Orange County for their support based on my vision for the people of the 74th District and my experience as a business executive and City leader.”
