LOS ANGELES, October 7, 2013 — The California  Republican Party (CRP) is climbing back from the abyss, and the birth of  the Tea Party California Caucus has the Tea Party as influential as it  has ever been.

The 2013 California GOP Fall Convention was held this past weekend  at the Hilton Hotel in Anaheim, within walking distance of all things  Disney. Yet the party that had been demoted to Mickey Mouse status in  California is now successfully regrouping. Approximately 1,000 activists  showed up for various political activities reflecting the party’s  desire to grow to what it was during its heyday.

Chairman Jim Brulte and Vice Chairwoman Harmeet Dhillon announced  that the CAGOP’s debt has been completely erased. Santa Clara GOP Chair  Charles Munger played a major role in helping get the GOP back in the  black.

Workshops on broadening the party featured tons of activists from  the Latino and black communities. The Log Cabin Republicans were  present, as were traditional values groups. Women were very well  represented as the California Federation of Republican Women showed up  in advance of their own state convention later in the month. Former CFRW  President Kathy Brugger was celebrated as the new chair of the National  Federation of Republican Women.
