Over 120 California Republicans and dozens of Latino Republican elected officials and candidates packed the GROW Elect reception at the CRP convention this past weekend in Sacramento. GROW celebrated reaching over 180 victories since its creation and the election of 50 new Latino Republicans this past November.

Attendees heard remarks from Charles Munger, Jr., Assemblyman Rocky Chavez, Assemblyman Dante Acosta and former Assembly GOP Leader and California Republican Party Vice-Chair Kristin Olsen.

GROW President Ruben Barrales thanked Munger for his tireless work to strengthen the California GOP and for making GROW Elect possible. Barrales also acknowledged Mario A. Guerra, CRP Treasurer, and a founding member of GROW.

GROW Elect congratulates Kristin Olsen and Mario Guerra on their elections at the convention to key leadership positions in the CRP. We are grateful to have such enthusiastic and sincere supporters of GROW Elect’s efforts to strengthen the Republican Party and empower Latino Republicans as part of CRP leadership.
