Hoping to help narrow the field of challengers to a Republican incumbent next year, a Democratic organization in the Inland Empire endorsed Redlands Mayor Pete Aguilar for Congress.

Aguilar won nearly 86% of the endorsement votes cast by members of the Redlands Area Democratic Club over the weekend, club officials said.

The rest of the votes were split between attorney Elois Gomez Reyes (11%) and San Bernardino Unified School Board member Danny Tillman (3%). Former Rep. Joe Baca, who lost his reelection bid in a neighboring district last year, did not receive any votes, the officials said.
