The California Republican Party is in shambles.

Let’s face it. It’s true!

The party, which has been steam-rolled by state democrats, is broke and disorganized. To be blunt, the state GOP is bleeding Assembly, Senate and U.S. House seats, and is on life support. A situation that will continue unless drastic intervention isn’t taken.

Former State Senator Jim Brulte has thrown his hat into the ring to become chairman of the California Republican Party, and not a moment too soon.

The data-driven Brulte is the right man for the job. He’s a moderate, an excellent fundraiser, well organized, and most importantly he has creditability.

I can’t think of any other person in the state who would be a better fit.

The party should be pleased that Brulte, who, for the past several years, has been a consultant with Sacramento-based California Strategies, wants the job.

Brulte should be given the nod to takeover the party reigns this week.
