“There is no better choice to represent Ventura County in Congress than Tony Strickland,” said Ventura County Republican Party Chairman Mike Osborn, noting the unanimity of the endorsement vote. "Tony is the clear choice for Ventura County families concerned about the economy and the runaway spending in Washington. We stand united behind his campaign because of Tony's record of distinguished service to our community. We're proud to endorse his campaign for Congress."

The Ventura County Republican Party joins California Republican Party Chairman Tom Del Beccaro in endorsing Strickland.

“I’m excited that local leaders are uniting behind my campaign for fiscal restraint and common-sense reform in Congress,” said Strickland. “Having the unanimous support of my Ventura County neighbors who know me best is a tremendous honor.”
