Assembly Republican Leader Waldron Statement on Asm. Maienschein Leaving the Republican Party

SACRAMENTO – Today, Assembly Republican Leader Marie Waldron (Escondido) issued the following statement in response to Asm. Brian Maienschein’s announcement that he is leaving the Republican Party:

“It’s unfortunate that Brian’s takeaway from his extremely close reelection was that his political future depended on becoming a turncoat. Unfortunately some people run for office simply because they want a job, regardless of political philosophy.  It appears that Brian falls into this category.

“Running away from the fight for a more affordable, efficient and accountable government for hardworking Californians is not the answer.  

“While Brian is enjoying the perks of his new status as a member of the Democrat majority in the Legislature, we Republicans will continue to stand for the people of California.”


Assembly Republican Leader Marie Waldron, R-Escondido, represents California’s 75th Assembly District, which includes the communities of Bonsall, Escondido, Fallbrook, Hidden Meadows, Rainbow, San Marcos, Temecula, Valley Center, and Vista.
