Two San Diego-based politicians confirmed their romance Wednesday with a photo posted on Twitter.
California Assemblymember Lorena Gonzalez (D) 80th District shared a photo with former Assemblymember and San Diego mayoral candidate Nathan Fletcher.
The same photo was posted to her Facebook account with the caption: "I'm happy to say this was a fabulous birthday! Thank you to all the wonderful wishes from family and friends.... And for my perfect dinner date Nathan Fletcher! Life is very good."
The first woman to be elected CEO and Secretary-Treasurer for the San Diego and Imperial Counties Labor Council, AFL-CIO, Gonzalez was elected to the Assembly in 2013.
Fletcher served as a Republican in the Assembly for four years beginning in 2008. He earned headlines for switching from the GOP to Independent during his run for mayor and then switched his political affiliation to Democrat.
He and his wife of 11 years separated late last year and filed for divorce in January.
