California Republicans strategize for the future of the state and nation

View descriptionShare

California Republicans wrapped up their statewide convention over the weekend in Burlingame. 

And they know that the road to keeping their House majority runs through several key Congressional districts here in California. The GOP has only a narrow 4-seat majority in the House and needed Democrats to help keep Speaker of the House Mike Johnson in power, staving off a conservative rebellion.

A handful of closely contested races in California could help determine which party controls the next Congress. That was one of many key points of focus at this weekend’s gathering of California Republicans, who had to weather a bit of controversy since their keynote speaker was South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem, a rising star who was at the top of many pundits’ short list to be Donald Trump’s running mate—until she revealed in her new memoir that she had shot and killed her own disobedient dog because she hated him so much.

For more on all of this, KCBS Radio's Doug Sovern and Patti Reising were joined by Shawn Steel, longtime Republican National Committeeman for California.
