California Republican Assembly

The Saddleback Republican Assembly (SRA) recently held our Endorsing Convention on September 19 using GoToMeeting. We are responsible for endorsing in the 9 cities in Southern Orange County and in school districts and other special districts wholly contained in that area. All current members of SRA were eligible to be delegates in this endorsement convention.

SRA is a chartered unit of the California Republican Assembly (CRA) and thus uses the 14 principles of CRA to guide our endorsement process. An endorsement by SRA is a de facto endorsement by CRA as a whole. More information on CRA can be found at http://cragop.org.

To receive an endorsement, candidates were required to complete a 9-page questionnaire, attend the endorsement meeting by computer or telephone and receive at least two-thirds of the delegate votes in their race. We thank all of the candidates who took the time to participate in our convention and wish them good luck in their races.
