The Kern Law Enforcement Association has announced their endorsement for the re-election of David Valadao.

Congressman Valadao spoke on the U.S. House of Representatives floor to show gratitude for law enforcement in September.

"It is particularly important to elect individuals who support law enforcement during these increasingly dangerous days for the men and women who are literally placing themselves in harm's way in order to protect the public," President of KLEA David Kessler said in a press release. "Congressman Valadao has proven himself to be an advocate for those of us who wear the uniform."

Valadao was elected in 2012.

23ABC reached out to Emilio Huerta, also in the running, and has not received a statement.
