NEW MAJORITY AND ITS HISTORY
As we move through our second decade, the New Majority stands at the forefront of political change in California and the nation. New Majority members contribute tens of millions of dollars to candidates and causes that create positive change needed to redefine the political landscape both at home in California and nationwide in Washington, DC.
To support its mission, the New Majority Political Action Committee (PAC), now California’s largest Republican PAC, and the Federal Political Action Committee (FEDPAC), support candidates and promote awareness of important political matters. In addition to its leading role in political awareness, New Majority has taken a leading role in educating its members, our elected officials, the business community, and key decision-makers on critical issues.
Although Chapters have their own identities and priorities, New Majority understands the importance of interaction between chapter members. In order to ensure the sharing of information, events, resources, speakers, and ideas, Chapters and our leadership work closely together.
New Majority was founded in Orange County, in 1999 by Julia and George Argyros, Brigette and Donald Bren, Dee and Larry Higby, Gary Hunt, Barbara and Mark Chapin Johnson, Willa Dean and William Lyon, and Joyce and Tom Tucker. Since its creation, New Majority has expanded with Chapters created in Los Angeles and San Diego.
