Former Assemblymember, California's 75th Assembly District

Nathan Fletcher


"Scott Peters is smart, capable, has the right experience, is in it for the right reasons, and he’s a good man... Congressional dysfunction is at an all-time high because of hyper-partisanship. We need a leader like Scott who cares more about results than rhetoric ... If you want leaders who put people ahead of party politics, then I urge you to vote for Scott Peters.”

Assemblymember, California's 78th Assembly District

Todd Gloria


"As San Diego's first City Council President, Scott Peters established the tone of setting partisanship aside to achieve smart solutions for our city and region. I'm proud to continue that approach today, and to support Scott Peters, who has brought that proven bipartisan approach to Congress to represent our region well while standing up to the divisiveness and extremism that others have used to disrupt effective problem-solving."

Former Congresswoman, 49th Congressional District

Lynn Schenk


"As the Congresswoman who represented much of this district some years ago, I know what it takes for our area to have a respected voice in Congress, and Scott Peters has the unique combination of personal skills and public policy background that make him an outstanding Representative and effective leader. Scott is a smart, savvy and thoughtful person who commands respect from all sectors –business, labor, Democrats, Republicans and Independents. I have worked with Scott when he was President of the city council and as Port Chairman. As a former port commissioner myself, I know it takes a special talent to forge compromise out of complex and competing interests. Time and again, Scott has demonstrated the patience, the intellect and the commitment to develop solutions which benefit society. He will continue to be a credit to San Diego!"

Dede Alpert


"I’ve known and worked with Scott for several years, while he was on the City Council, and during his volunteer public service to our community and through his first campaign for Congress. He is thoughtful, compassionate and smart, and one of the most skilled consensus builders I’ve ever worked with. His reasonable, determined style of leadership is sorely needed in Washington right now where the rancor has become so intense it is harming our country. I urge San Diegans in the 52nd District to support him and a less divisive style of leadership to Washington."
