New Majority

Political Priorities

2017 – 2018 Political Priorities


Each election cycle, as well as when situations warrant, the New Majority and its members develop priorities to advance in State and National politics. Having the chapters working together and members focused on the same goal makes the organization unique and brought it tremendous success.

Our proven process has resulted in historic electoral reforms – state and Congressional redistricting as well as the Open Primary system and we’ve helped elect dozens of candidates from President George W. Bush and Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger to US Senators and state legislators.

As the implementation of the plan unfolds, members are given a voice as to which candidates and issues to support as well as key funding decisions. Members are briefed regularly on the progress of the efforts and can choose to be as involved as they like.



In 2017 – 2018, the Orange County chapter priorities are aligned in these key areas:

  1. Regain 1/3 Republican seats in both houses of the California State Legislature.

    To block the Democrat’s Supermajority, we must work with TEAMCAL, the Legislative Leadership, and the California Republican Party to identify and support targeted races, to lead Republicans back to the “one-third” in the State Legislature.

  2. Support the best Republican 2018 Gubernatorial candidate.

    It is essential that the GOP has a strong contender with a chance of winning. Having a candidate as a “top-two” contender will also help turn out voters for lower ticket races.

  3. Promote candidates and initiatives that reflect a pro-business agenda, to include defeating any future tax increases.

    With the Democrat’s Supermajority, New Majority’s goal is to promote a pro-business agenda and protect Californians from any future tax increases. It is not yet known what the measures will look like, however the focus for New Majority Orange County will be to assist any candidates or coalition groups in defeating these efforts.

  4. Focus on recruiting new members to New Majority Orange County.

    All members “double-down” and focus on recruitment. The more members New Majority has involved, the more the organization can maximize efforts in supporting its mission.

  5. Partner with other organizations to improve voter registration and diversify the party.

    Work with coalition groups such as the California Republican Party, Republican Party of Orange County, and others in an effort to increase Republican voter registration, as well as expand participation with ethnic, millennial, and female voters.

  6. Participate in federal races we can win.

    The New Majority California Federal PAC will actively participate in federal races where Republicans can win and continue to protect the majority margins in the House and U.S. Senate. The FedPAC will also continue to work directly with the National Republican Congressional Committee and the National Republican Senatorial Committee to identify targeted races throughout the nation with
    increased emphasis on protecting the GOP incumbents in vulnerable seats.
