SacCountyGOP did not endorse in the Attorney General’s race, but the CAGOP endorsed Nathan Hochman

Message from CAGOP: “The Democrats are at it again—employing dirty tricks to win an election. This time, public employee unions and far-left activists are running deceptive ads trying to confuse Republican voters about the race for California Attorney General.
Why? Because they feel threatened by our official California Republican Party endorsed candidate for Attorney General, Nathan Hochman, the leading challenger to Newsom-appointed Attorney General Rob Bonta.
Bonta and his allies are spending millions of dollars trying to confuse voters and split the Republican vote. These are the same extremists who gave us George Gascón as District Attorney in Los Angeles—now trying to rescue their choice for AG, Rob Bonta.
Nathan Hochman is the only Republican candidate endorsed by the California Republican Party in the race for Attorney General. He is our best shot at winning this critical race and restoring law and order to our streets.”
