Valladares to Switch Races?

| News | August 29, 2019

Suzette Valladares, a Republican candidate for congress, might soon drop out of the race and run for Assembly instead.

According to Valladares’ consultant Jimmy Keady, she is “aggressively being courted by the county and the (local) Republican Party. That’s the only comment I can give.”

Joe Messina, media contact for the Republican Party of the 38th Assembly District, declined comment.

Valladares, an Acton resident and CEO of the Little Steps of Faith preschool in Sylmar, is one of four Republicans vying to unseat first-term Democratic Rep. Katie Hill for the 25th congressional district seat.

If she switches races, she would go against another first-term Democrat, Christy Smith. Smith defeated another first-termer, former Santa Clarita city Councilmember Dante Acosta, and many believed Acosta was planning another run until he got a job in Texas and moved away.
