GROW Elect Update

Roundtable Discussion with Congressman Carlos Curbelo

GROW Elect is proud to announce our roundtable discussion with Congressman Carlos Curbelo on February 18, 2016 in San Diego.  Congressman Curbelo is a dynamic young Latino Republican who won a hard-fought, surprise victory against a Democrat incumbent in a Democrat leaning district.  He is one of Nancy Pelosi’s top targets in 2016. Join us as we discuss the 2016 election cycle, and efforts of groups like GROW Elect in strengthening the party.

There is no cost for the event, but space is limited and RSVP is required. Please contact us at if you are interested in participating.

Important Deadlines Approaching for Local Candidates Across California

Declaration of Candidacy and Nomination Paper s are due no later than March 11. We can help with filing requirements and provide early critical support to candidates.

Run for Republican County Central Committee

If you are not ready to run for local office, but want to make a positive impact, we suggest running for your county central committee.

The county central committees are the backbone of the state party, and involvement with party leaders and activists can help future potential candidates in their campaigns for local office. It is a good first step for those interested in serving their local communities in an elected position in the future.

Contact us at GROW Elect if you are interested and we will navigate you through the requirements and process.  Together we will build a stronger Republican Party and a stronger state of California.
