Former Secretary of State Bill Jones -- head of the state's delegation to the Republican National Convention and a supporter of John McCain dating back to his 2000 campaign -- today announced the 173-member delegation to Minneapolis.
The three delegates from Ventura County's 24th Congressional District will be Ventura City Councilman Neal Andrews and former Santa Barbara County Supervisor Mike Stoker -- who were on McCain's delegate slate on the February primary ballot. New to the list in Simi Valley City Councilman Glen Becerra, who was a backer of Rudi Giuliani in February.
The alternates will be Supervisor Peter Foy of Simi Valley, longtime GOP activist Dianne Alexander of Thousand Oaks (who chaired Giuliani's campaign in the county) and Dean Graham.
The California delegation will be the largest delegation to the GOP convention.
