California General Election: Tuesday, November 6th, 2018
The California Taxpayers Union is non-partisan. We will support any candidate or measure that supports our mission. Over the years we have supported Republicans, Democrats and Libertarians, and you will see candidates from all three parties represented below.
Our recommendations are based on:
- Our local knowledge of candidates and measures that align with our values of Fiscal Responsibility, Free Men, Free Markets and Limited, Constitutional Government.
- Recommendations by Carl De Maio and his team at the De Maio Report. His considerations match ours: opposition to tax hikes (like the dreaded Car and Gas Tax Hikes); respect for the Constitution and personal freedoms; support for small businesses and job creation; and opposition to excessive regulation.
- Craig Huey and his Election Forum Project’s Judges Recommendations
