EL MONTE, CA — The California Association of Highway Patrolmen (CAHP), representing over 14,500 current and retired highway patrol officers throughout the state, announced their endorsement of Democrat Mike Eng for the open 22nd State Senate District.
CAHP was formed in 1920 by county traffic officers throughout California, with the purpose of protecting the professional and economic interests of the men and women who protect our communities every day.
“I am proud to have the endorsement of the CAHP and the officers they represent” said Eng, “I look forward to working with them in Sacramento to ensure we remember the interests of those who shield our communities from harm daily," Eng concluded.
Mike Eng is also endorsed by the National Latino Peace Officers Association Advocacy, the Peace Officers Research Association of California (PORAC), the Association for Los Angeles Deputy Sheriffs (ALADS) and the Los Angeles County Professional Peace Officers Association.

All of the best-known District leaders – including incumbent Senator Ed Hernandez, Supervisors Hilda Solis and Kathryn Barger, Congressmembers Judy Chu and Grace Napolitano and Assemblymember Ed Chau – are supporting Mike.
