May 10, 2019 - PLACERVILLE, CA — Sean Frame will officially kick off his campaign for California’s 4th Congressional District on May 10th in Auburn and May 11th in Mariposa. His campaign Sean Framehas secured early endorsements from the Carpenter’s Union, former State Senate candidate Silke Pflueger, and Tomas Evangelista of the CA Dreamers.
“I will be the rural Democrat that delivers for the people of California’s Fourth.,” said Frame. “Our communities have suffered for far too long under a no-government extremist who attacks our healthcare, fails to defend our forests, and, raises taxes on small business owners. I will prioritize residents over ideology by assisting homeowners facing skyrocketing or cancelled insurance due to wildfire, ensuring gateway towns do not have to endure another government shutdown, and bringing down the cost of prescription drugs.”
Two Democratic challengers have now announced plans to challenge Republican incumbent Congressman Tom McClintock in 2020.
Last year McClintock defeated Democrat Jessica Morse by a final count of 54.9-percent to 45.1-percent...
... Another Democrat who earlier announced intentions to run is Sean Frame, a Placerville resident, who has served seven years on the Placerville Union School Board. He also owns a film production company and is the co-founder of a local activist group, the El Dorado Progressives.
California Republicans are hoping to make up some of the ground they lost in 2018 congressional races — but first they’ll have to close an early fundraising gap.
That’s one of the major takeaways from the first set of fundraising reports of 2019, which show that when it comes to the race for cash, California Democrats picked up right where they left off last year.
Seven freshmen Democrats flipped seats in 2018 — Reps. Josh Harder of Turlock, T.J. Cox of Fresno, Katie Hill of Santa Clarita, Gil Cisneros of Phelan, Katie Porter of Irvine, Harley Rouda of Newport Beach and Mike Levin of Vista.
A new crop of Democrats is sizing up a challenge to Republican Rep. Tom McClintock in California’s 4th Congressional District after McClintock’s 2018 opponent, Jessica Morse, decided to forgo a rematch.
Sean Frame, a Placerville Union School Board member and local businessman, declared his candidacy in November 2018. And at least one other Democrat is also considering jumping in.
The Sunday after America elected Donald Trump, Placerville resident and small-business owner Sean Frame decided to do something about the anxiety he was feeling. Though he’s on a local school board, he never really considered himself a politically active person.
“There’s a term – slacktivist,” Frame said. “I was very good at posting things on Facebook, but I didn’t really ever take that out into the world. Especially living in this very conservative community, I thought sharing my political views would just make my friends and neighbors angry.”
