'First Look': Chairman of local Republican party talks politics

By THE BAKERSFIELD CALIFORNIAN

The chairman of the Kern County Republican party's Central Committee appeared on "First Look with Scott Cox" Monday to talk about local politics.

He said the local party is working to get Hanford cherry farmer Andy Vidak elected to the 16th Senate District seat left open by the resignation of Michael Rubio.

Vidak is running against Leticia Perez, D-Bakersfield, who is currently a Kern County supervisor.

"She's got all kinds of union money that's going to help her out. And union money makes a huge difference," Haddock said of Perez on the simulcast.

Haddock, talking about the special election, predicted "it'll be a close one."

The chairman also talked with Californian Editorial Page Editor Robert Price about immigration.

"We have to make sure the borders are secure," Haddock said. He elaborated and said there needs to be fairness when it comes to immigration.
