GOP Group With Link To Governor Wants Winning Candidates

A splinter group of Republicans with ties to Governor Schwarzenegger and financed by six-figure donations will recruit candidates with hopes of reversing the party's disappointing record in recent statewide elections.

Disclosure of the group - California Republicans Aligned for Tomorrow - comes at a time when the California Republican Party has been struggling with financial and management problems and factional strife between moderates and conservatives.

A list of supporters comes from across the party's political spectrum, but the organization appears geared to promoting Republicans who can compete statewide in a state that leans Democratic. A statement notes that Republicans have won only four of 24 statewide elections in California since 1994.
