LOS ANGELES (AP) — Long-suffering California Republicans are assessing another election disappointment and looking for a way forward.

The Republican Party has been fading away in California for years, and now accounts for only about 24% of registered voters, compared to nearly 47% for Democrats who hold every statewide office and dominate the Legislature and congressional delegation. GOP leaders are looking to claw back more House seats next year, after grabbing four from Democrats in 2020.
