California Nation podcast: Should CA GOP embrace Trump?

In exactly one month, California Republicans will select their party’s next leader. The top contenders are Travis Allen and Jessica Patterson.

Allen finished his Assembly term last year and is now looking to align the California GOP more closely with President Donald Trump. This comes at a time when a blue wave swept across California in the 2018 midterms, giving Democrats their biggest legislative advantages in decades.

On this week’s episode of “California Nation,” Allen sits down to discuss why he feels the party should embrace Trump.

“This is a great American president, and it’s about time that the Republican Party in California stands behind its Republican president,” Allen said.
