Get-Out-The-Vote Push Needed to Win Recall Election

While 24% of the ballots mailed to Democrats have been returned, only 21% of ballots mailed to Republicans have been received according to voting results reported by PDI.  A 3% difference in turnout could easily decide the recall election.

Statewide, as of August 31, 21% of all ballots mailed have been returned.  Analysts say that Republican voting behavior mirrors what happened in the 2020 elections when Republicans voted late and in person based on worries about the integrity of Vote by Mail ballots.

The challenge is to make sure that Republican voters get to the polls in the final two weeks leading up to election day.

The California Republican Party has launched a statewide phone program to get-out-the-vote using Campaign Sidekick, the same program used to elect Republicans in the Special Elections last year.  You can sign up for Campaign Sidekick training by clicking on the button below:

Many counties provide the opportunity to vote in person prior to election day.  In some Bay Area counties, Vote Centers open on September 4, with additional Vote Centers opening as election day approaches.  Voters can usually drop off mail ballots at the registrar’s office during normal business hours.  Use the link below to check out your nearest voting location or check your county registrar’s website.

Whether you vote by mail or in person, please vote to make sure your voice is heard.  Then volunteer to help get-out-the-vote and remind your friends to cast their ballot on or before September 14.

Vote YES to Recall Gavin Newsom!

CAGOP Fall Convention in San Diego, September 24-26

by Roger Riffenburgh

The California Republican Party Fall Convention is planned to take place at the Manchester Grand Hyatt on the weekend of September 24-26 with the theme “Forward Together”.  This will be the first in-person convention since 2019.  In addition to the usual speakers, committee meetings, and general session, delegates will have the opportunity to discuss the results of the recall election.

The Friday night dinner speaker will be New Hampshire Governor Christopher T. Sununu.  First elected in 2016, Sununu is now in his third term. The Cato Institute named him the nation’s most fiscally responsible governor. A graduate of M.I.T., he earlier worked as an environmental engineer cleaning up hazardous waste sites.

The Saturday luncheon speaker will be Utah Congressman and Superbowl champion Burgess Owens.  He attended the University of Miami, where he was selected as a First Team All-American in football while earning his B.S. degree in biology/chemistry.  He played safety for the New York Jets and Oakland Raiders, winning the 1980 Super Bowl with the Raiders.  He was elected to the House last November.

Planning for the in-person convention is challenging.  Though a proposed vaccine mandate was just shelved in the Legislature, Covid regulations at various levels of government could change quickly – in addition to who occupies the governor’s office.  The CAGOP recently sent a survey to delegates, asking about attendance plans, attitudes towards vaccination proof/testing/masking, and an online attendance option.  The CAGOP looks forward to welcoming delegates to San Diego.

The Manchester Grand Hyatt hotel is located on the bay in downtown San Diego, near the Gaslamp District.  The deadline to receive the CAGOP discounted hotel rate of $185 plus tax is Wednesday, September 1.  Rooms may sell out sooner.

California Business Headquarters Now Leaving Twice As Fast, With No End In Sight

Align Technology is a $2.47 billion business revolutionizing orthodontics. Darvis is an artificial intelligence firm creating safer and more efficient hospitals. Moov is the first interactive platform for buying and selling high-technology equipment. The common thread? These remarkable companies are among the 74 known California businesses that have relocated their headquarters to another state in the first six months of 2021—double the rate for each of the three previous years. We have identified 265 headquarters relocations out of California since 2018.

When company headquarters migrate out of California, significant economic costs affect not only the state but also communities as well-compensated employees depart and no longer patronize local businesses or pay taxes. Moreover, when advanced technology companies move their headquarters, centers of innovation move with it.

New Sanctuary State legislation provides protections for violent felons, curtails law enforcement operations

By: Chris Catren, VP California Police Chiefs Association

September 1, 2021

California has some of the strongest Sanctuary State laws in the nation. These laws, in actuality, do not provide any real sanctuary from immigration because those are federal policies our state officials cannot change. Instead, these statutes control when our local law enforcement can work with immigration authorities. California’s existing sanctuary state laws shield low level offenders. Currently, new legislation by Assemblymember Wendy Carrillo seeks to extend our sanctuary state protections to those convicted of any crime – including sex crimes and violent felonies like murder, rape, torture, kidnapping and more. Additionally, the measure, Assembly Bill 937, removes an important exemption our police chiefs were given in previous sanctuary state legislation to allow our officers to partner with federal law enforcement agencies on anti-human trafficking and terrorist task forces.

CAGOP Files FPPC Complaint Against Gavin Newsom over Multi-Million Dollar Home

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
cagop.org
August 26, 2021

Newsom failed to file required disclosures involving his $3.7 million residence
 

SACRAMENTO – Today, the California Republican Party filed a complaint with the Fair Political Practices Commission over $3.7 million in interests that Governor Gavin Newsom failed to report. This is the latest example of Newsom’s lack of adherence to the law. His primary residence in Fair Oaks, California was transferred into his possession from an LLC* in 2019 that claimed he had an ownership interest in the LLC, and therefore he was not required to pay a transfer tax. However, the LLC is not listed on Newsom’s Form 700 – a form that serves to provide the public with an elected official’s personal financial interests and ownerships.

Voters deserve transparency from elected officials, as is required by law, and the California Republican Party has requested that the FPPC open an investigation into this matter.

Tony Blair slams Joe Biden’s ‘imbecilic’ retreat from Afghanistan

Tony Blair has launched a furious attack on Joe Biden’s “imbecilic” withdrawal from Afghanistan, as the airport at the centre of evacuation efforts was forced to shut on Saturday amid horrific scenes.

The former prime minister, who took Britain into Afghanistan in 2004, said that the “deep politicisation” of US foreign policy was “visibly atrophying” American influence, and claimed the debacle over the withdrawal risked Britain being relegated to the “second division” of global powers.
