Jessica Patterson for CAGOP Chairwoman

Jessica Patterson has delivered the best results the California Republican Party has seen in decades. She deserves re-election as Chairwoman of the California GOP.


The results speak for themselves. Under Jessica’s leadership the California GOP:


  • Flipped four Congressional seats from Democrat to Republican
  • Reclaimed an additional GOP assembly seat.
  • Raised $37.5 million to fund GOP candidates and our party
  • Helped register over 600,000 California Republicans
  • Implemented new Get-Out-The-Vote tactics to level the playing field with Democrats
  • Defeated Democrat Secretary of State Alex Padilla and Attorney General Xavier Becerra in court when they tried to prevent the CAGOP from implementing their GOTV program
  • Delivered on the most important priorities for President Trump and the Republican National Committee.
  • Brought us a step closer to defeating Nancy Pelosi and making Kevin McCarthy Speaker of the House
  • Rallied the GOP to stop the Democrat split roll tax increase
  • Helped roll back the Democrats’ plan to restrict our right to work independently
  • Successfully mobilized Republicans to defeat the reintroduction of racial discrimination in college admissions, public employment and public contracting
But the work is just beginning.
In the next cycle, we have the opportunity to elect a Republican Governor and the statewide officers that could reopen our economy, reduce homelessness, guarantee fair elections, stop tax increases, and improve public safety.  Jessica Patterson has proven she has what it takes to get the job done! Learn more on her website.
