California Republicans Shift Stance on Abortion, Marriage-Equality

To the outrage of national Republicans, the California GOP is trying to broaden its appeal by removing language opposing abortion and critical of same-sex marriage from its platform. In the blue state, Republicans have indicated they intend to broaden their tent ahead of the party’s convention, where the 2024 candidates are expected to speak. By bringing the state’s conservatives into alignment on key social issues with the majority of Americans, including the majority of people in the state with the largest population, they intend to make their party more appealing. In late July, the California GOP committee adopted a proposal emphasizing “traditional family values” and a “strong and healthy family unit.” However, the committee removed a phrase that said, “It is important to define marriage as a union between one man and one woman,” the Los Angeles Times reports.
