(Bermuda Dunes, CA) – Today, Republican Greg Wallis announced an endorsement from Riverside County Sheriff Chad Bianco. Bianco is in his 29th year in law enforcement. He was elected Riverside County Sheriff in 2018.
“I am thankful for Sheriff Bianco’s support,” said Wallis. “He has balanced the Sheriff Department Budget, retained and recruited new Deputy Sheriffs in the face of the Defund the Police mess, and has made his agency more transparent for the community than before. As your next Assemblymember, I will fight for public safety and fight with our law enforcement leaders so our state is safe for the next generation.”
Wallis’ campaign continues its strong early momentum. In just a couple weeks, Wallis raised over $100,000 dollars and has been endorsed by several high-profile leaders in the district.
Wallis’ endorsements include:
San Bernardino County: Supervisor Dawn Rowe
La Quinta: Mayor Linda Evans, Councilmember Steve Sanchez, Councilmember Robert Radi, and Councilmember John Pena
Palm Desert: Mayor Jan Harnik, Mayor Pro Tempore Sabby Jonathan, and Councilmember Gina Nestande
Indian Wells: Mayor Dana Reed and Mayor Pro Tempore Donna Griffith
Desert Hot Springs: Mayor Scott Matas
Cathedral City: Councilmember Mark Carnevale

The new 47th Assembly District is made up of two counties. Riverside County makes up 76% of the district while 24% is in San Bernardino. The largest city in the district is Yucaipa, followed by Palm Desert, Palm Springs, and Beaumont. While Democrats have a 3% voter registration advantage in the district, the Republican candidate at the top of the ticket won it in 2016 and carried it in the last midterm election in 2018.
