Not to pick on the Golden State (see below), but the GOP in California is already so far on the outs with the voters that they can barely get a word in edgewise. In both state and federal offices, the Democrats rule the roosts. But hope springs eternal, and the California Republicans think that they can get back in shape by bringing in a really good motivational speaker.
Seemingly ready and raring for a second shot at the 2016 Republican presidential nomination, Texas Gov. Rick Perry has accepted the top speaking slot at the California Republican Party’s fall convention in Anaheim this fall.
Perry will speak to more than 1,000 members on the future of the party, focusing on next year’s midterm elections and the impending race for the presidency.
