Starting tomorrow, the California Republican Assembly’s 75th Anniversary Celebration and Endorsing Convention gets underway and several high-profile candidates are expected to attend as they seek CRA’s endorsement:
The action packed weekend will feature both major candidates for Governor – Insurance Commissioner Steve Poizner and Meg Whitman – and the major candidates for U.S. Senate – Assemblyman Chuck DeVore, Carly Fiorina and Tom Campbell. In addition, delegates will hear from candidates for other statewide offices and the Board of Equalization.
“The fact that all the major candidates are actively campaigning for the CRA endorsement is further
testimony to the important role CRA plays in the state,” Mettler added.
Candidates must receive the votes of two-thirds of CRA delegates in order to be endorsed. CRA’s endorsement vote is scheduled for the Sunday afternoon session with candidate speeches slated for Saturday.
