As his campaign to replace California Governor Gavin Newsom’s failed administration builds statewide momentum, Brian Dahle has consolidated GOP support to become the California Republican Party nominee for California governor in 2022.
“I am grateful for the opportunity to move to the general election with a unified party,” Dahle said from the Anaheim Convention Center after winning a supermajority endorsement vote at the state party convention. “One-party control has left California with the nation’s highest poverty rate, out-of-control crime, high taxes and schools failing to deliver for students. The campaign remains focused on offering real solutions for the people of California.”
In the last two gubernatorial elections, California Republicans did not nominate a candidate. Dahle won the endorsement by a supermajority of delegates from around California after a floor vote against three other candidates. Dahle was elected to the State Senate in 2019. Prior to this, he served as the Assembly Republican Leader and was a former Lassen County Supervisor.
“Californians are pessimistic about their future,” Dahle said. “I love this amazing state, but Californians deserve better from their government. Californians’ quality of life can improve with new leadership, empathy and commonsense reforms in Sacramento.”
