Conway, Fong endorse Macedo for Assembly

Macedo is gaining the support of Central Valley Republicans early in her campaign.

Shortly after announcing her candidacy for Assembly, Alexandra Macedo has now been endorsed by two big-name Republicans. 

Driving the news: Former Rep. Connie Conway (R–Tulare), who also served as the Republican leader in the Assembly, endorsed Macedo for Assembly District 33 on Thursday 


  • Friday, Asm. Vince Fong (R–Bakersfield) also threw his weight behind Macedo, who launched her campaign after Asm. Devon Mathis (R–Visalia) announced his retirement at the end of his term. 

What they’re saying: “Alexandra Macedo understands the challenges facing Central Valley farmers, businesses, and working families,” Conway said in her endorsement. “She is a farmer and small business owner with an education and real-world experience that we need to change the direction of our state. I am proud to put my support behind her campaign.” 

  • Fong echoed a similar sentiment to Conway, saying Macedo understands the most values most important to the Central Valley. 
  • “The Central Valley is her home and she will work tirelessly to make our community a better place to live and work,” Fong said. “She will fight for more water, affordable energy, and safer neighborhoods. I am proud to endorse Alexandra’s campaign and look forward to partnering with her to tackle California’s toughest challenges.”
