Last Saturday, I was very pleased to attend the Los Angeles County Republican Party Executive Committee meeting. Fellow Republicans Susan Shelley and Armineh Chelebian were invited to compete with me for the Republican Party of Los Angeles County endorsement.
The three of us spoke and took questions from the committee. When the final round of voting was held, I beat Susan Shelley by almost double the number of votes, 21 to 11! Armineh Chelebian did not receive a vote at this event.
While we were one vote shy of the 2/3 needed to secure LA County endorsement, the support I received from the largest County Republican Party in the nation was very satisfying. As no endorsement was made by the County:
I am the only candidate in the race that has received an official Republican Party Endorsement!
I would like to thank Chairman Mark Vafiades and the LA County Republican Executive Committee for their hospitality.
With the support of the Republican Party behind me, it's now time to focus on my Democrat opponents. We will only keep building on this momentum over the next two months as we fight to end the super-majority in Sacramento.
Looking forward to the special election on September 17, my team is stronger than ever!
