OC GOP Central Committee Meets to Make Official Endorsements

Posted by Chris Nguyen on September 17, 2012

The OCGOP Endorsements Committee met on September 4-5 to make recommendations for endorsement.  (You can get the recaps here and here.  The consent calendar was here.)  Today is the real fun as the Central Committee meets to accept or reject the recommendations of the Endorsements Committee.  Once the Central Committee acts, a candidate is officially endorsed (or not endorsed) by the Republican Party of Orange County.

The meeting begins at 7 PM at the Costa Mesa Westin Hotel, 686 Anton Blvd., Costa Mesa, CA 92626.

This should be interesting juggling for OC Political tonight, as Emami fled the country, I’m being sworn in as a Central Committee alternate, and several of our bloggers are full-fledged Central Committee members.

Here’s the list of candidates/ballot measures being considered for endorsements…

For ease of reading, I’ve added the following notations to the candidates’ names:
*Recommended for postponement
**Recommended for dual endorsement
^ Opponent was recommended for endorsement
~ No recommendation
Strikeout Withdrew request for endorsement
Candidates without notations were recommended for endorsement.
