Southern California Republican Women & Men Announce Endorsements for June 5th Ballot
John Cox, Previously Endorsed by Donald Trump, Wins Republican Backing
May 28, 2018
At today's meeting the members of the Southern California Republican Women and Men voted by a two-thirds majority to endorse John Cox to be the next Governor of California, the Group announced.
"We consider it critically important that a Republican make it to the top 2 on June 5. While some of us may have preferred Travis Allen, we recognize the necessity of unifying behind the Republican candidate who has objectively established a decisive lead. A THIRD-PLACE FINISH BEHIND ANTONIO VILLARAIGOSA IS NOT AN OPTION!"warned the group in a statement.
A Republican at the top of the November ticket is necessary for its own sake, but also is critical to boosting our down-ticket candidates, who may otherwise be massacred. Additional candidates endorsed by vote of two-thirds of members present:
Attorney General: Steven Bailey
Secretary of State: Mark Meuser
Lieutenant Governor: David Hernandez (Note that there are 2 Hernandez's running for Lieutenant Governor. DO NOT VOTE FOR ED THE DEMOCRAT!) VOTE DAVID Hernandez.
U.S. Senate: Tom Palzer
State Senate, District 18: Brandon Saario
Los Angeles County Sheriff: No Endorsement.

TWO ADDITIONAL GUIDELINES:
1) SCRW&M strongly recommends that you do NOT mail in your ballot. If you have a mailable ballot, take it to the polling place on Election Day, hand it to the staff and verify that you see them drop it into the box. There is credible concern of fraud related to mail-in ballots. See https://www.electionintegrityproject.com
2) Finally, DO NOT FOLLOW THE RECOMMENDATIONS OF SLATE FLYERS DELIVERED BY THE U.S. POSTAL SERVICE! Read the very very fine print. These are NOT endorsed by any official Republican Party organization; they are simply advertising that the candidates pay for. Some may be legit, but many are Trojan Horses, paid for by Democrats. Don't be fooled by clever phrases like "Republican Revolution" and photos of Ronald Reagan. As one of our members demonstrated today at the meeting, one mailer titled "Democrat" an another titled "Republican" were 90% identical and obviously came from the same print shop.
