At the California Republican Partys convention earlier this month, chairman Jim Brulte announced 2014 would be the year of pushing the party outside of its comfort zone, and introduced four candidates vying to take on incumbent Gov. Jerry Brown in November.

They shouldnt dwell on my past. They should be looking at the future of California and what I can do, he said.
What you can do is....keep dreamin'.
Precisely. Past is prologue, especially for Mr. “99% of the time”.
“Sex offender and Manslaughter”, just watch, they will spin this to make it sound like he may have some hidden character flaws.
I prefer Jerry Brown to a sex pervert and killer.
Never thought I’d have a nice word to say about California’s incumbent governor on a conservative forum.
But if all the GOP can serve up as its candidate is a sex pervert and murderer, I’ll stay in my “comfort zone.”
“Champ said he is running on a campaign that promotes American Christian values, supporting tax breaks for businesses and gun rights and opposing same-sex marriage and abortion 99 percent of the time. Champ said these issues are what California voters should be focusing on.”
no more rinos, this guy sounds like a solid conservative to me.
Hey look he's a California dreamer! Seriously aren't there enough democrats running without the GOP pushing another?
Champ said he is running on a campaign that promotes American Christian values, supporting tax breaks for businesses and gun rights and opposing same-sex marriage and abortion 99 percent of the time. Champ said these issues are what California voters should be focusing on.
I think I will pass.
I guess we’re so dump that all a sex offender killer candidate has to say is, “I identify with American Christian values”, and viola! Conservatives vote for him. /s
Yep, every good Conservative I know has served decades for manslaughter and is a registered sex offender. /s
Oh wait! Are you nuts, or are you just playing a person that is on the forum?
I don’t know a single Conservative that matches this guys record.
Well, that’s just nuts — but he also opposes 99% of abortions, gay ‘marriage’, and supports tax cuts and gun rights. The others aren’t quoted about it. Partisan Media Shills ping. Thanks This Just In.
If he ran as a Democrat he might have a chance, Republican not so much.
Jerry the fairy is a sex offender but I haven't hears of him being a murderer.
He was arrested and booked into the Sierra Madre Sheriffs station for child molesting in 1958.
His father, Pat Brown, and Jessy Unruh got him out within 2 hours and had the record expunged.
Character flaws? Heck, in CA that makes him electable.
I’m sorry, SunkenCiv, but I don’t trust a convicted sex offender killer even if he tried to sells us on the, “opposes 99% of abortions, gay marriage, and supports tax cuts and gun rights.” platform.
At the very least, he speaks like a politician.
I agree, as a Mayor or in a black Congressional district he would still be measured by how militant he was for liberalism.
Why on EARTH would ANYONE with a brain support this pig?
I’d vote for him over Obama. Any day. Jerry Brown, too, if those were the choices. Thankfully, we have better choices.
dalereed, do you have any further info./documents regarding the arrest? I would like to read. Thanks
Fellow sex offenders perhaps?
And he did over ten years in prison, and it’s not a great place to pick up good habits, particularly when one has run down someone with a vehicle and jumped an underaged prostitute.
OTOH, if he gets the nomination, he’d pull a LOT of votes from the scum of the Earth and their friends the dregs of humanity, who ordinarily vote straight-ticket Democrat...
This would be a resume enhancer if he were running under the RAT ticket.
Hell no, the record was expunged that night.
I know about it because a good friend of mine was the desk sargent that booked him.
He came by my speed shop in Pasadena after he got off work and told us about it.
He wouldn’t publicly push the issue because his father had refused to back off on a case years before and he got a politician put in prison and it ended his career as a Sheriff.
They sent him to LACC to teach criminalogy until he got retirement and never got promoted beyond sargent.
My friend is now retired and retired as Captain with a good pension.
“Why on EARTH would ANYONE with a brain support this pig?”
Well.... this IS California....
It’s unfortunate that there’s no paper trail to that crime.
Time for Gloria Allred to come crawling out of the closet, like she did for
The GOP ain’t known as the stupid party for nothing . God please help this nation & please hurry.
Don't worry. Karl Rove can work wonders ... even for this guy.
I can see it now, Karl Rove ads telling CAca's voters that
"Brulte says Champ's victim(s) looked 18 and were provocatively dressed, and the guy he killed was no prize, either. To top it off, while in stir, Brulte says Champ did a lot of reading."
I believe it. He just looks like a sicko.
This ironically named loser is not a serious candidate.
The serious candidates are conservative State Assemblyman Tim Donnelly and RINO former Assistant Treasury Secretary in charge of TARP, Neel Kashkari.
Kashkari has WAY more money so far.
Tim Donnelly is the Tea Party candidate for California gov. Seems fine to me.
Go Tim, Go!
Kashkari is such an Uber-RINO he makes the Rahm Emanuel pal that the IL GOP just nominated for Governor look conservative in comparison. He's like a super RINO created by combining bits and pieces of lesser RINOs.
A guy who diddles teenage girls and whacks a business competitor is no conservative.
The rich bitches will always give to their crony political friends.
Seems pretty clear to me that conservatives need to rally behind Tim Donnelly if we have any chance of nominating someone decent.
Aguirre is going nowhere, “Champ” is a guaranteed loser and joke, and Kashkari is so liberal he makes Ahnuld blush. There’s also two additional Republican candidates the California GOP didn’t even mention: Laguna Hills Mayor Andrew Blount and Alma Marie Winston, former CEO of Civil Rights Legal Defense Fund.
It’s an ill wind that blows no good.
I wish conservative folks who want ruthless politicians would make up their mind. This looks like one. Shoot why can’t his slogan be “Stop prostituting California and take out the garbage”?
OK, this Champ will probably turn out to be a chump who goes nowhere in the race. Still it’s kind of funny how life imitates farce.
He’d probably live cleaner than Schwarzeneggar. He got all those youthful indiscretions out of his system already!
Wait, I thought RINOs weren’t tough.
You’re confusing RINOs with spineless conservatives who cave to Dems.
RINOs are tough — they’re just fighting for the other team instead of the one they claim to be a member of. Kashkari will work hard to implement the left’s agenda.
Come election day, I just check the letter after the name. If it's a D, I vote for the one with the R.
Elections are not about principles. They are about winning! Only children vote on principle!
Surely it’s not the only GOP candidate?
Then again, it is California.
If he cross-dresses, he'll be a shoe-in.
Looks like the California Republican Party has abandoned any form of standard now.
There are 28 million adults in California.
This is all the Geriatric Old Plotters could come up with?
The Bohemian Grove has gone to the squirrels.
those who’ve been thru the criminal justice system now have a candidate to consider. He knows what they’ve been thru.
Who knows this guy may have a chance it is California after all.
There are over 30 million people in California.
We must be able to find a Conservative better than this person.
Just guessing, but if one digs deep, this guy is a DEMOCRAT POSING as a Republican!! Maybe the Dems PAID Mr. Champ to run to make Pubs look awful.
'Remember last week when you hit Vinny on the head with a shovel?'
'I do not recall that'
Cali GOP is having another Casey Stengel moment: “Can’t anybody here play this game?” Spreading eastward too!
