SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - California Republicans achieved their modest goals last year: they prevented Democrats from winning a two-thirds majority in both houses of the state Legislature and saved the party from financial ruin.
It's not a lot, but at least the party still has a seat at the table in Democratic California.
State Republicans will meet this weekend in Sacramento to plot their strategy for the next two years. But their long-term challenges are stark.
The party so far has not come up with a viable challenger for U.S. Senate next year, which should be a high-profile political contest.
The weekend's biggest attraction is New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, a brash Republican who has been successful in a Democratic state. He'll address delegates Saturday, and then meet behind closed doors with lawmakers.
