Report from HQ Opening: Republican Strength in the OC

Last night I joined Assembly nominee Diane Harkey at the opening of the South Orange County Republican Headquarters in San Juan Capistrano. In a sign of Republican strength in the OC, the opening was literally overflowing with Republican local elected officials, candidates, and activists.

Diane Harkey is going to make a great Assemblymember -- tough, principled, articulate and committed to expanding the party's reach at every level to put Republican ideas into action. Legislators from heavily Republican districts can help expand the party by supporting candidates for other offices in the same region, and it's clear that's at the top of Diane Harkey's priority list.

The headquarters opening drew so many Republican leaders it's tough to list them all here: Supervisor Pat Bates (who held the 73rd before Assemblymember Mimi Walters, who is moving up to the Senate), Republicans from the Oceanside City Council including Jack Feller, Rocky Chavez, Jerry Kern and candidate Jim Gibson, CRA leader Karl Heft and local CRA activists, a long list of leaders from our RWF groups, candidates like Lou Penrose (Dana Point City Council), OC GOP Executive Director George Andrews, mayors, councilmembers, and the list goes on.

Motivational speaker and conservative activist Mason Weaver did a great job reminding everyone of the importance of this year's campaign, as always.

In all, a tremendous outpouring of Republican strength for this headquarters opening behind the "Orange Curtain."
