(ORANGE COUNTY, CA) – Republican U.S. Senate candidate Elizabeth Emken, an accomplished businesswoman specializing in efficiency and cost-cutting, and nationally recognized advocate for autism research and treatment, today announced that they has officially endorsed her campaign for U.S. Senate.
The RNHA-NLA is the largest local Latino Republican group in the state and their announcement adds to a long and growing list of endorsements that includes an overwhelming majority of Republican elected officials, prominent party leaders and the California Republican Party, which unanimously endorsed Emken for U.S. Senate in March.
“Elizabeth Emken represents qualities that are important to both California and the Hispanic Community,” said Suzette Martinez, chairman of the Republican National Hispanic Assembly of North Los Angeles. “Her qualifications and commitment to Republican principles make her the top tier candidate that Californians will proudly send to Washington to represent us in the United States Senate.”
The mission of the RNHA is to build a membership organization to foster the principles of the Republican Party in Hispanic community; to provide Hispanic Americans with a forum to play an influential role in local, state, and national Party activities; to increase the number of Hispanic Republican elected officials; and to create and maintain a network of Hispanic Republican leaders.
The RNHA-NLA strives to equip Hispanic Americans to be full participants in the Great American Experiment of government by the people, for the people, and of the people.
We firmly believe that Hispanic values are Republican values and vice-versa. Core principles, such as family, faith, freedom, and future opportunities are concepts that bind us together. Individual responsibility, strong national security, limited government, a free market economy, and traditional family values are all basic beliefs of Republicanism that are also core to most Hispanics. It is for this reason that Hispanics will find a home within Republicanism and the Republican National Hispanic Assembly of North Los Angeles.
