"Every election is an opportunity for Californians to decide whether we're on the right track, or if we can do better. With the highest poverty rate and the worst business climate in the nation, we can do better. We're going to make sure that when it comes to the state's number two post, voters have a choice and the opportunity to restore some balance to Sacramento," said Nehring.
From 2007 to 2011 Nehring served as Chairman of the California Republican Party. He previously served as Chairman of the Republican Party of San Diego County and is currently the San Diego GOP's Vice Chairman.
"In San Diego, we've seen how the power of ideas can transcend partisanship. We have a Republican Mayor in San Diego today because even in a city where Democrats hold a big advantage in registration, voters chose the candidate of reform over the candidate of organized labor the the Democrats. That's the right model for our party to be competitive again in California," he added.
Nehring's campaign is chaired by former top Reagan campaign adviser Peter Hannaford and has been endorsed by the California Republican Assembly, the state's oldest and largest GOP volunteer organization.
