‘California Women for McCain’

The McCain-Palin campaign today rolled out its leadership roster of California Women for McCain, “a statewide grassroots organization that will work to bolster the support among women for John McCain and Governor Sarah Palin.”

Heading up the effort statewide is Julie Vandermost, a San Juan Capistrano community relations, government affairs and regulatory compliance consultant. The Northern California co-chairs are Cathie Bennett Warner of San Anselmo — president of a Marin County public relations company and chairwoman of the California Medical Assistance Commission — and Nevada County Supervisor Sue Horne of Lake of the Pines, Republican nominee for the 3rd Assembly District seat.

I’ve asked for a list of county chairs but haven’t received it yet; I’ll update this post when I do.
