When deep-blue California instituted the “top two” voting system a few years ago, it was assumed that Republicans would be left out of most statewide races. Yet on Primary Election Day, Republican John Cox won the second spot in the governor’s race and now faces Lt. Governor (and former San Francisco mayor) Gavin Newsom. Having a Republican on the ballot for governor could increase Republican turnout by 23 percent. As Cox supporter Newt Gingrich wrote, “This turnout will make the governor’s race competitive and be the difference between winning and losing a number of House seats.”
Republicans throughout California are very excited! This is why a brief discussion on John Cox’s candidacy has been added to the agenda for the RLA Republican Women Federated Saturday, June 16 meeting at the Cypress Courtyard by Marriott (5865 Katella Avenue at Valley View). The event starts at 9:30 a.m. with a hot buffet breakfast.
Guest speaker Craig R. Hoover, a licensed engineer with more than 30 years of experience, answers the question: Is climate change real? He explains the politically charged and oftentimes confusing topic of global warning. As the author of “A World to Come Home To,” Hoover examines global warming and the steps that must be taken immediately to end global warming in our lifetime.
