Congressional candidate Ricky Gill announced Wednesday that he has earned the endorsement of former Republican primary opponent John McDonald.
McDonald stated in his endorsement that Gill is "the best candidate to represent the 9th District in Congress."
In his endorsement, McDonald added that while the two had differences in the primary, it was "critical" that "conservatives stick together and work hard to ensure victory in November."
Together, Gill and McDonald earned 51.4 percent of the primary vote to McNerney's 48.6 percent, according to current vote totals.
"I look forward to working with John and all conservatives in the 9th District to mount a strong general election campaign centered on jobs, education and common-sense government," Gill said in a statement released Wednesday.
