Republican Party of Orange County Yanks Endorsement of Tyler Diep
Embattled Assemblyman loses endorsement after a “series of votes incongruent with the Republican platform”
Orange County, CA — Last night the Republican Party of Orange County rescinded its endorsement of Tyler Diep in the 72nd Assembly District.
OCGOP Chairman Fred Whitaker stated, in part: “This is a sad day when an incumbent Republican member of the legislature loses the local party endorsement, but the party felt there had to be accountability for voting patterns.”
Diep is being challenged by former Republican Senator Janet Nguyen in the March Primary. His vote for AB 5 and other anti-business legislation, along with his cozy relationship with organized labor and so-called “justice reformers” has caused Diep to lose support among Orange County Republicans.
