I recently reviewed the June primary election choices from the California Tea Party Groups (CTPG); now, its time for me to analyze the results.

In terms of state-wide elected offices, the good news is that we placed half of our candidates. The CTPG’s choices for Secretary of State, Treasurer, Controller, and Insurance...
