Having fallen short in his recent campaign for governor, conservative state Assemblyman Travis Allen said Monday that he is weighing a run for chairman of the state GOP with the goal of “leading California Republicans back to statewide relevance.”

Allen, a resident of Huntington Beach, said he talked Monday with party Chairman Jim Brulte about the operations and priorities of the state party in preparation for making a decision on whether to vie for the leadership job.

Brulte has said he will not seek another two years as leader when his term ends in February, and a candidacy by Allen would set up another contest with former Assemblyman David Hadley, a social moderate who also ran for governor before dropping out of the race after two weeks in 2017.

The LA Times further reported:

“I’ve been asked by a number of supporters and I am seriously considering it,” Allen said of running for state chairman. He complained that Republicans in California “are dramatically underrepresented at the state and congressional level.”

Allen, who has received support from tea party conservatives, finished fourth in the June primary for governor with a campaign promising lower taxes, tighter security at the U.S.-Mexico border and tougher law enforcement. His campaign fell short after the state Republican Party decided not to endorse in the primary for the governor’s race.
