A proposal to let the California Republican Party make an early endorsement of Governor Schwarzenegger and allow early party contributions to his re-election campaign led a long-time activist to resign from a key party committee today.
Dora Kingsley says the rule proposed by party Chairman Duf Sundheim for consideration at the party convention this weekend in Sacramento could bring criticism of Schwarzenegger. Kingsley says G-O-P rules prohibit early endorsements to protect the integrity of the nomination process. She says changing the rule could lead to loss of voters´ confidence.
A G-O-P spokeswoman says Kingsley´s concerns are baseless. The plan is to let the party quickly support Schwarzenegger for re-election.
