Congratulations to our Officially Endorsed Candidates
A Word From
Mark Hershey, CCR President
First off, I would like to thank all the Republican candidates for their pursuit of public office. From school board to Governor of California, the campaign trail is a long one that is emotionally, physically, and financially draining. Republican candidates are peppered with endless questions about their ideas and solutions to problems and are often misquoted or attacked in the press and social media. So, I applaud the candidates for the courage, dedication, and hard work it takes to run for an office.
The California Congress of Republicans held their endorsement convention just prior to the CAGOP Anaheim Convention. CCR delegates from all parts of California, from Shasta to San Diego, from the Central Coast to Hemet and San Bernardino, gathered and endorsed Republican candidates for 8 statewide offices as well as numerous candidates for district seats. Our endorsements were publicized on our website and through email blasts. Many candidates touted their CCR endorsement in their speeches and campaigns. At the CAGOP convention, delegates voted to endorse 6 statewide candidates, all of whom were previously endorsed by CCR.
The California Congress of Republicans co-sponsored with the Log Cabin and Young Republican organizations, a “Spring Cleaning” reception on Saturday evening at the Anaheim Convention. Hundreds of Republicans enjoyed the event with the theme of “cleaning” the Democrats out of office in our 2022 election.
The California Congress of Republicans presented itself well at the convention. Our endorsements helped six statewide candidates secure the CAGOP endorsement. No CCR endorsed candidate was opposed by the CAGOP. We shared a fun time with our Republican friends from all over California at our social event.
Now is the time to help our endorsed candidates and turn out our fellow Republican voters in the primary election. Reach out to your family and friends and offer your knowledge and recommendations. Email or text them a link to the California Congress of Republicans endorsements in both statewide and district races. And of course, don’t forget to cast your vote early and track your ballot to be sure it is counted!
The CCR has many objectives, some of which are: (a) to become an influential political force for constructive action to preserve and protect responsible constitutional government, (b) to educate members and the public at large regarding pending legislation, candidates for public office, and the important issues of the day, (c) to encourage qualified Republicans to seek public office, (d) to help Republican candidates get elected, (e) to increase Republican registration and voter turnout, and (f) to promote unity, effectiveness and loyalty among all Republican groups.
MY LASTEST POSTS
To achieve some of CCR objectives, we partnered with South Peninsula Area Republican Coalition (SPARC) to provide a monthly “Speaker’s Series” presentation. An important and timely topic is selected and then an outstanding speaker is scheduled for the event. These topics include: “What’s Next for the Supreme Court”; U.S. and China relations; California ballot initiatives; post-election analysis; legislative attacks on Proposition 13; and the effects of Propositions 47 and 57 on the criminal justice system.
The California Congress of Republicans (CCR) is a grass-roots political organization, founded in 1989 and permanently chartered by the California Republican Party. CCR is built upon the shared Republican principles of Limited Government, Lower Taxes to create genuine economic opportunities, individual liberty, personal responsibility and leadership in world freedom.
California Congress of Republicans provide an opportunity for like-minded individuals who share important core values to network and socialize with each other. This camaraderie can be furthered by participating in or joining a chartered organization in their community. Because CCR is statewide and a chartered organization, its members’ voices are heard at the California State Republican Party level.
California Congress of Republicans (CCR) is a statewide organization, permanently chartered by the California Republican Party with chapters throughout the State of California. Many of our members also serve on their respective county Republican Central Committees and local Republican clubs.
