February 25, 2018 - After unsubstantiated accusations against Col. Doug Applegate, ex-wife Priscilla Greco has come out with this statement:

"I'm disappointed that uninformed people are yet again making disrespectful and personal attacks against our family. We went through a difficult divorce as many people have, but to take things out of context and make Doug out to be an abuser is absurd. Doug and I are parents first, and we raised two amazing children together. I support his run for Congress and I will be voting for him in June and November 2018." - Priscilla Greco, formerly Priscilla Applegate.

“Colonel Applegate promises to effectively advocate for public policies and legislative actions that will improve employment and wages in California, improve worker safety, and ensure protection for working families and communities,” said District Council 36, Painters & Allied Trades Political Director, Robert Smith. 

“The members of IUPAT District Council 36 are among the highest skilled and best-trained workers in the industry, and I am honored to receive their endorsement,” said Colonel Applegate. “I vow to support legislation that invests in infrastructure, increases funding for worker training and skills development, and reinforces the value of collective bargaining nationwide.”

The Teamsters are one of the largest and most diverse unions in America with over 1.4 million members who work in various trades and industries.

Patrick D. Kelly, the Teamsters Union Local 952 Secretary Treasurer, said, “Colonel Applegate will be a transformational Congress person who will fight to protect mortgage interest deductions and California state and local tax deductions instead of giving America more tent cities like we have right here on the Santa Ana river bank.”

“Washington needs leaders who will represent all men and women; stand up against income disparity; and deliver affordable housing, healthcare, higher education, apprenticeships and jobs,” said Doug Applegate.

Doug Applegate will again challenge controversial incumbent Rep. Darrell Issa to represent the 49th District in the June 2018 primary.
