Assemblyman Obernolte is also honored to announce his endorsement by Congressman Cook to represent the 8th Congressional District, which encompasses all or portions of San Bernardino, Inyo, and Mono Counties.    

“I have watched Jay fight for our district in Sacramento for the last six years. There's no better advocate for veterans, taxpayers, and small businesses than Jay, and nobody I trust more to represent us in Washington D.C.” stated Congressman Cook.

“As a local small business owner, I know firsthand the burdens that Washington D.C. puts on our communities,” said Obernolte. “I’m asking the constituents of the 8th  Congressional District for their vote because we must stand up for the middle-class, cut government waste, balance the budget, defend our constitutional rights, protect our veterans, and strengthen our national defense.”

As a member of the State Legislature, Assemblyman Obernolte passed more legislation than any current state lawmaker in the Inland Empire and has focused on solving problems that improve the quality of life of everyday Californians.

Obernolte’s successful legislation includes bills making government more efficient and effective, as well as strengthening penalties on criminals and protecting taxpayers. He has helped stop over $300 billion in harmful tax increases on the middle class (including a $220 million tax on drinking water), fought for better access to healthcare, and voted to audit wasteful government programs such as the DMV and high speed rail, which resulted in billions of dollars of savings for taxpayers.

“For the last eight years, Congressman Paul Cook has been an effective voice for our veterans and our district,” stated Obernolte. “I believe I can continue Congressman Cook’s work and use my experience passing legislation to break through the gridlock in Washington D.C. and be a strong advocate for my constituents.”

Jay Obernolte started FarSight Studios, a software development company, in his college dorm room. Today, his local small business employs dozens of residents in the 8th Congressional District. Jay also has 14 years of experience in public service.  He is currently serving a third term representing the 33rd Assembly District in the California State Legislature, which includes over 65% of the 8th Congressional District's voters. Jay has been married to his wife Heather for 23 years and they have two sons, Hale and Troy.
