“I watched Jeff Bleich represent the U.S. as Ambassador to Australia, and witnessed first-hand that he has the leadership skills, the intellect, the work ethic, and the genuine decency that we need in our elected officials—wherever they are. He was uniformly respected by all his Australian interlocutors, as well as by everyone on the US country team he headed. At a time when new threats face our states and our nation -- particularly in cyber—we need leaders like Jeff who are tough but sensible, to keep us secure. I've never endorsed a candidate for any office, but I'm endorsing Jeff Bleich for Lt. Governor of California, and I'm proud to do it.”
