CALIFORNIA REPUBLICAN ASSEMBLY GIVES EASTMAN OVERWHELMING ENDORSEMENT
March 7th, 2010
The California Republican Assembly, California’s largest volunteer organization and dubbed by Ronald Reagan as the “conscience of the Republican Party,” today overwhelmingly endorsed John Eastman for Attorney General. In the balloting, Eastman received 197 votes (80%), while State Senator Tom Harman picked up 40 votes and Steve Cooley just 8 votes.
“With today’s overwhelming endorsement of John Eastman for Attorney General, the CRA has spoken loudly and clearly about who the best candidate is to represent our conservative values and turn our state around,” commented Ken Mettler, President of the CRA.
“The CRA has long been the benchmark by which Republican Primary candidates are measured,” said Eastman. “That’s why I’m so proud to have picked up their endorsement today.”
Having just recently stepped down as Dean of Chapman Law School, John Eastman’s campaign has gotten off to a fast start, already adding the support of Former US Attorney General Ed Meese, Former Governor George Deukmejian, Congressman Tom McClintock, and some of the most well-known conservative talk radio show hosts in the country. Eastman, a former Clerk to Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, is widely respected as one of the top conservative legal minds in America.
