State Assemblyman Travis Allen of Huntington Beach announced this week that he has received the endorsement of the Orange County Republican Central Committee for his campaign for governor.
"I am honored to receive the endorsement of the Orange County Republican Party," Allen said in a statement Wednesday. "As the third-largest county in the state and home to over half a million Republicans, Orange County is key to defeating [Democratic candidate] Gavin Newsom."
A statement from Fred Whitaker, chairman of the Republican Central Committee, said Allen has a "strong record of fighting for Orange County. He has fought to repeal the gas tax, stop the bullet train and stop the out-of-control spending in Sacramento. He is the right candidate to take on Gavin Newsom and take California back."
