The San Joaquin County Farm Bureau Federation, an advocacy group for farmers, has endorsed Democrat Xochitl Paderes for the open 13th Assembly District seat.
Paderes lives in Stockton. She has also been endorsed by the Service Employees International Union's California State Council, California School Employees Association and the San Joaquin County Deputy Sheriff's Association.
The district, which was formed last year by the California Citizens Redistricting Commission, includes rural Lodi west of Davis Road, along with Flag City, Terminous, Thornton and Morada.
Paderes is competing in the June primary election for the 13th District seat against Democrats Susan Eggman and C. Jennett Stebbins of Stockton, and Republicans K. "Jeffrey" Jafri and Dolores Cooper, both from Stockton.
