Ventura County Republican Central Committee Chairwoman Leslie Cornejo said today she is sticking with her decision to endorse challenger Michael Tenenbaum over incumbent Elton Gallegly in the 24th Congressional District primary.
Cornejo had said earlier in the week that her endorsement was "unconditional," and she reiterated that sentiment now that Gallegly is officially back in the race and willingly seeking re-election.
She said many committee members have supporter her decision to stick to her guns. But for the moment, she said she is appreciating a slight lull after a wild week of political maneuvering and intrigue. She said she planned to watch the NCAA basketball tournament today. "It's a different kind of March Madness."
