Saying it’s time for his party to regain its relevance in California, the former Assembly Republican leader said Tuesday he’s launched a new political organization to focus on issues where the GOP can find common ground with voters who now routinely elect Democrats.
“I think a lot of us are feeling very nervous about going into 2018 with the current dynamics that we’re facing today,” said Assemblyman Chad Mayes (R-Yucca Valley). “And I think, in large part, that’s because Republicans have failed to be able to reach out to folks, to average folks, in California.”
“They don’t think we care about them. They don’t think we are working for their benefit,” he said.
