North Coast Democratic power players endorse Lehman

Boasting the endorsements of some of Humboldt County's most noteworthy politicos, Chris Lehman announced Monday his candidacy for the seat representing the North Coast in the state Senate that is being vacated by Noreen Evans next year. - Thadeus Greenson/The Times-Standard

In statements released endorsing Lehman, some well-known Humboldt politicians raved about him. Chesbro called him an “unwavering defender of our region's” natural resources and environment; Lovelace called him “the right person to represent us here on the North Coast” and Berg said he will make a “remarkable Senator for our region” at a time when the interests of “our district have been too often overlooked in Sacramento.”

While Lehman's not a household name in his home county, much less throughout the state's expansive 2nd Senate District, Emenaker said Lehman's widely known among the power players of the Democratic party, both in and out of Humboldt County.
