HBRA held an endorsing convention using ZOOM on August 11, 2020. HBRA is allowed by its charter to endorse candidates who are registered Republicans. All such candidates were invited to fill out an HBRA Candidate Questionnaire and given five minutes to address the convention. Of the ten Huntington Beach City Council candidates who are registered Republicans, eight filled out our questionnaires and seven spoke at the convention. The following three candidates received sufficient votes to be endorsed by HBRA:
- Gracey Van Der Mark
- Tito Ortiz
- Casey McKeon
There are six other candidates that are either Democrats, NPP, or of unknown registration at this time. It will be important for conservative voters to converge on three conservative candidates to the extent possible in this election.
