John Cox, republican gubernatorial candidate, will hold a press conference in Fresno calling on the Central Valley and local governments to follow Orange County in rejecting sanctuary polices. The press conference is set to take place in front of the Robert E. Coyle Federal Courthouse in downtown Fresno at 1:15 PM.

Polling in recent weeks had John Cox trailing democrat gubernatorial Gavin Newsome in second place, but a recent SurveyUSA election poll has Cox trailing Newsom and democrat gubernatorial candidate Antonio Villaraigosa.

John Cox has visited the Central Valley on numerous occasions this election season. Cox recently received the endorsement from the Fresno County Republican Party. Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich also endorsed John Cox.

Last month, Orange County Board of Supervisors voted on a resolution unanimously to exempt themselves from SB 54. Senate Bill 54 officially known as the “California Values Act” more commonly known as the “Sanctuary State” Bill, signed by Governor Brown on October 5, 2017 restricts local law enforcement from cooperating with federal immigration authorities.


This event is about timing. John Cox is polling well and reiterating his position against sanctuary cities will only aid his candidacy. However, the trip to the Central Valley is interesting because no Central Valley city has expressed the desire to go against California’s decision on “sanctuary status.” A resolution against the sanctuary state bill introduced by Fresno City Council Member Steve Brandau was unsuccessful because it lacked support on the dais.

Will any elected officials or organizations join John Cox during the press conference? We shall see if anyone is serious about joining the Trump Administration in the Central Valley and go against California.

Story will be updated.

    So funny! Travis Allen was the one who went on Tucker in January, said ” Mr President and Sessions, come SUE CA” and they did. Travis Allen’s city and county all joined the lawsuit. COX has done ZERO– but yet you news media somehow give him air time?

    John Cox is jumping on Trump’s train for the attention it brings, he did not support Donald Trump for the presidency last year, he voted Gary Johnson. Our OTHER Republican candidate, Assemblyman Travis Allen, did support Trump and continues to do so! He has more energy, enthusiasm and know-how of our state’s legislature than Cox, PLUS HE IS A LIFE-LONG CA NATIVE, not a vacationer who decided that this state was better than his home in Chicago! Cox has zero chance against Newsom, Travis Allen is the only candidate that could win that inevitable contest. Please, let’s not lose by supporting another Kashkari or Whitman….

    No one cares who voted for President in CA. It is a throw away vote for any Republican Presidential Candidate running in the General Election in CA and will not affect the outcome of the Presidential Election. What matters is supporting our President NOW. Secondly, No one cares where someone was born and raised but where they make their home NOW. Lastly, Throwing out red meat and working up a crowd is not what makes a good candidate. Taking credit for your local gov’t accomplishments when you as a State Assemblymen had Zero influence in outcome is wrong. Moreover, Travis Allen running his campaign into debt is not fiscally conservative nor is being behind in the polls in a jungle primary and not getting out is a sign of arrogance and narcissism.
