Former San Diego City Councilmember Barbara Warden, a Republican who represented the same council district that Carl DeMaio later represented, has endorsed Rep. Scott Peters and will record a phone call urging voters to support Peters.

“I’m a Republican and I feel strongly that Scott Peters is the right choice,” Warden said Monday. “Scott works with Republicans and Democrats to create jobs, make our neighborhoods safe and he’s endorsed by the National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare."

Warden added, "I believe Scott Peters was one of the finest city council members our city ever had.”

Warden served as San Diego’s Council District 5 representative from 1993 to 2000.  She represented an area that encompasses large swaths of what is now California's 52nd Congressional District.

“Barbara Warden has an enormous amount of respect and credibility among residents of the 52nd Congressional District – and it speaks volumes that Barbara, who is a Republican, is endorsing Scott Peters over Carl DeMaio,” said Alex Roth, communications director for the Scott Peters campaign.
