The California Republican y chose the 38-year-old Jessica Patterson as the leader on Monday, and the first woman turned the chairmanship of the state GOP wasted no time vowing to “take the fight against the Democrats” and a “Republican comeback” in the liberal cause high castle.

Patterson, order comes as state Democrats are shipwrecked on a number of high-profile issues on the national stage, with the White house proposes to sue to challenge the state, the billions of Federal dollars, the state will constantly be delayed and eventually abandoned — high-speed-rail project.

“We denounce the Democrats in California, we are back and we are ready to deliver on the Republican comeback,” said Patterson, who was also the first Latina ever said the chair of the state GOP, after the victory. “Then let’s dig in and make it happen.”

She added: “We will fight against Democrats. We will fight against them in the press, in the community meetings … and we beat them in the elections.”

Patterson has a long career in Republican politics, and before that, the organization initiated a California pioneer, the candidate preparation for new candidates for office. She previously worked for the administrations of former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, as well as the campaign of the gubernative candidate Meg Whitman, among others.

The state has, however, shifted significantly to the left in the last few years. California Democrats all state-wide offices and a veto-proof two-thirds majority in the Parliament, and the Republicans have not won statewide office since 2006. The GOP is considered the third state in the registration of voters behind Democrats and independents.

The choice of 2018, pushing the party further to the brink of extinction in the nation’s most populous state, with Democrats kill seven U.S. house seats once considered GOP strongholds and the Republicans hold less than a quarter of state legislative seats.

“We will Win through.”

The results stunned the Republicans, who retrieves the then speaker of the house of representatives Paul Ryan is the result “bizarre”. Despite holding a significant lead on election day, many Republican candidates in California, they saw their advantage shrink and then disappear, such as late-arriving democratic counting of votes in the weeks after the election.


Some Republicans harvest debt a new legal practice as “ballot.” Two years ago, California Gov. Jerry Brown signed into law AB1921, legalized, harvest the so-called practice of “vote.” So far, only one member of the family or someone in the same household was allowed to live, in order to collect the drop-off E-mail ballot for the voters, but the new everyone-can including of political activists, and then again for a voters.

But without substantive evidence of election misconduct, the California Republican y delegates had to look inside and decide where the party will go on with your leadership. A majority of around 1,200 delegates Patterson, previously at the helm of a Republican candidate recruitment and training chose.

Patterson argues that the Republican message in new communities would be the key to success and said they would push candidates to focus on California, rather than the message of the President.

Her two rivals, former state Assemblyman Travis Allen and party activist Steve Frank said the switch-on of the party base, the loves, the President of Trump was the key to success. Both are strong supporters of the President.

However, Patterson had the support of most elected officials, including top Trump Fans, as GOP house Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy. It was viewed as the candidate better prepared to make money and do the routine work required in a chair.

Their opponents argue that it represents more of the same leadership that led the party into decline. Both charged that the state party has no support pleaded for strong conservative values and shied away from full-throated Trump. All came in the second and Frank third.


“California Republicans are as Republican as the Republicans throughout the country,” Allen said in an interview last week. “It is time we have a Republican party that stands for our values, our ideals, and supports our Republican President.”

After the vote, Allen said only that he hopes that “the Republican party begins to fight back for the good of all Californians.”

Patterson said before the election they supported trump. About McCarthy, you will have the support of the key Trump-the Fans had, such as U.S. Rep. Devin Nunes and the state’s two Republican National Committee members.

But some of Trump’s most fervent California Fans were disappointed by the result. Stephanie Sporcich, a teacher, said she had with the interested Contracting state, because of the trump card of choice. She let her voice of All, and saw in the chair race as a battle between the base and the device.

“We are the ones who have the strongest trump card trailer trump values,” she said, adding she and other new activists have already successfully do the party infiltrated structure, and will continue to work this.


But Elizabeth Patock, another teacher, liked Patterson, the emphasis on the “non-traditional “Republicans” in the party. Patock not vote for the trombone and said that she likes how ugly national politics have become.

She said Patterson “has a positive message.”

Patterson is the first Latina to lead the state party. You don’t make your personal heritage, an essential piece of your election campaign, but said the party needs the “new messenger.”


California Republicans have struggled to appeal to the state, the growing Latino and Hispanic population, because the party, the position of the illegal immigration, among others. Patterson did not give the specifics to Sunday, how you will deal with this issue.

As a gesture of good will, she called Frank and All, as a co-Chairman of the voter registration Committee. Both had emphasised that the party, the outsourcing of voter registration activities as a major weakness. And she called for unity among the California Republicans.

“Our success is a team, no ego, no personal agenda, no drama,” she said. “We will Win through.”
