Mike and Aaron welcome two guests to the show this week:
First up is Travis Allen, State Assemblyman and Republican candidate for Governor, who is running in the 2018 primary as a proud Trump Republican. Aaron and guest host Chris Smith talked to Allen about his hopes to bring Donald Trump-style politics to California, working to slash taxes, invest in infrastructure, bring concealed carry gun laws and his stated belief the Republican Party in the age of Donald Trump and Roy Moore is still the more family friendly party when compared to Democrats. It’s an interesting exchange to say the least.
Allen also talk about the state of the Republican Party in California, and his hopes to bring the state back to the California conservative policies once championed by Ronald Reagan.
Allen also talks about his ‘five point plan for California’ and discusses his fireworks with Democratic gubernatorial candidate Gavin Newsom centering on marital fidelity and if that’s an indicator of character for a Governor. Given the reports about both men, there’s a lot to explore. We wrap up with a lively, though incomplete, discussion of how both parties are dealing with sexual harassment and the ‘Me Too’ movement.
It’s a lively interview which would be incomplete at twice the length.
Our second guests is Saulo Londano, the Chair of the Butte County Republican Party. He talks about local party positions, how the Republican Party of the North State differs from the rest of California, and what he sees as the best path for the party to regain statewide influence. He also handicaps the governor’s race a bit along with some other June 5 races.
