“The exceptional leadership and performance of Jim Brulte and Harmeet Dhillon over the past two years compels us to make an endorsement in the upcoming CRP elections.  The California Republican Party is now a funded and effective organization thanks to Jim Brulte.  Jim was crucial to reversing the Democrats’ supermajority in both houses of the state legislature.  Harmeet has led our party’s communications efforts and has been a tireless worker at the grassroots to help rebuild the GOP in California,” declared GROW Elect President Ruben Barrales.
“Furthermore, GROW Elect and its members are grateful to the commitment of Jim Brulte and Harmeet Dhillon to focus on local elections and to help recruit Republican candidates who are representative of every community in our state,” continued Barrales.

Mario Guerra – An Example of the American Dream

GROW Elect is proud to endorse Mario Guerra for California Republican Party Treasurer. Mario embodies everything that our organization represents.  Mario was a 6-year old immigrant from Castro’s Cuba who came to the United States with his family in search of freedom.  Mario went on to become a successful small business owner, and he was elected to the Downey City Council and became Mayor.

Last year, Mario ran a strong campaign in a heavily-Democratic State Senate race.  Mario is involved in many community activities and serves as a Chaplain for the Downey Police Department and he is a Deacon at his local Catholic Church.  He is also one of the co-founders of GROW Elect.
“Mario Guerra is an example of the American Dream. To know Mario is to respect him.  The CRP is fortunate to have someone with his financial and business experience, and leadership ability, to take on the important responsibility as our party’s treasurer,” said Barrales.

GROW Elect urges all delegates to build on our successes in the 2014 election. Please join us at the CRP convention at the end of February in support of the outstanding leadership of Jim Brulte, Harmeet Dhillon and Mario Guerra to help create an even stronger California Republican Party.
