Ventura GOP Endorses Candidates for Congress
January 25, 2024
Thousand Oaks, Calif. – The Ventura County Republican Party voted to endorse Larry Thompson for Congress in Congressional District 32 and Thomas Cole in Congressional District 24 last night at the organization’s January meeting.
Both Thompson and Cole received the required two-thirds majority to earn the party’s endorsement after the party’s Central Committee heard from all of the Republican candidates for these seats. The Ventura GOP had previously endorsed Michael Koslow in the 26th Congressional District.
“Larry Thompson’s lifelong commitment to conservative principles make him a great candidate,” said John Andersen, Chairman of the Ventura County Republican Party.
“After moving to California from Mississippi, he followed his dream and turned it into a very successful career as a Hollywood talent manager, a film producer and an attorney,” he continued.
“Larry Thompson’s positions on closing the border and fighting crime stand in stark contrast to liberal Congressman Brad Sherman, and he offers the voters of the 32nd Congressional District a choice between the status quo and fighting back to fix our state and our nation,” he concluded.
Upon receiving the Ventura GOP endorsement, Thompson said, “I am grateful to receive the Ventura County Republican Party’s endorsement for Congress in the 32nd Congressional District. It’s clear the Ventura County GOP recognizes the need for change in California and in Washington.”
The 32nd Congressional District includes Bell Canyon in Ventura County along with the city of Malibu and the Los Angeles neighborhoods of Pacific Palisades, Beverly Glen, Bel Air, Studio City, Sherman Oaks, Woodland Hills, West Hills, Canoga Park, Winnetka, Reseda, Encino, Chatsworth, Northridge, Brentwood, North Hills, as well as the part of Granada Hills.
