Last weekend the California Republican Convention wrapped up, and liberty candidate Tim Donnelly is the clear front-runner to unseat Gov. Jerry Brown, the Democrat seeking a fourth term.
The message posted on Donnelly's campaign web site was optimistic: "Together, we rocked the entire California Republican Party convention over the weekend, leaving zero doubt who the clear front-runner in the primary for Governor is."
Local media also agreed.
The LA Times headline read, "Tim Donnelly gets unofficial endorsement at GOP convention", and the article called it a "resounding" decision.
The Sacramento Bee echoed similarly.
Reuters reported that about 1,000 delegates and guests attended the weekend convention in Burlingame, about 15 miles south of San Francisco. Speakers included former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus who urged members to strike a more inclusive tone as the party struggles to rebuild in a state where it once dominated.
Donnelly told the approving crowd to not look at Democrats as the enemy, but, due to Obamacare, as potential Republicans.
"We ought to frack our way to prosperity and drill our way to prosperity, rather than sitting on an ocean of oil and importing it from our enemies," he said to wild cheers.
