Top 25 California Conservatives on Twitter

Top 25 California Conservatives on Twitter

Despite the fact that California these days is politically dominated by the axis of big government–public employee unions and radical left-wingers–there are still a lot of conservatives here in the Golden State. And we care about the future of our communities, our state, and our country.  

While I follow a great many California tweeters, I thought I would make a list of those whom I would consider the top 25 California conservatives on Twitter (in alphabetical order).

There were really three subjective passes at the list to cull it down.  

First and foremost–does the tweeter live in California? Next was whether an individual was, in my opinion, conservative. For this purpose, I primarily looked at whether the person was someone who embraces a limited role for government in our lives, and embraces liberty and freedom. The third pass through the list was whether or not the individual is “effective” on Twitter.

Without any further introduction…

AdamBaldwin @adambaldwin – We don’t have enough Hollywood actors who are conservative, let alone who are open about it. Adam is a strong voice for liberty and freedom on Twitter.  Check him out on IMDB here.

Kevin Dayton @DaytonPubPolicy – Kevin heads up the Dayton Public Policy Institute, and is one of California’s leading experts on government and labor issues. I am a lot smarter today for reading his Twitter feed.

Tom Del Beccaro @tomdelbeccaro – Tom is Immediate Past Chairman of the California GOP. He blogs on his site, Political Vanguard, and has a regular column at Forbes.

Mike Der Manouel, Jr. @lincolnfresno – A former Treasurer and Vice Chairman of the California GOP, Mike’s use of Twitter to debunk and expose the left is simply awesome.  

Kira Davis @KiraAynDavis – Kira is a leading national conservative voice on Twitter.  She has a lot to say, and minces no words. You should also check out her You Tube page.

Larry Elder @Larry Elder – This longtime fixture on Los Angeles talk radio continues to take it to the left, and he’s definitely good at using Twitter to do it.

Jon Fleischman @flashreport – What can I say about myself?  I’m Politics Editor for Breitbart California, Publisher at FlashReport, and nationally recognized for my addition to tweeting.

Stephen Frank @CAPoliticalNews – Steve is the publisher of the well regarded California Political News and Views site. An expert on politics and policy, Steve is definitely a “must follow” here in the Golden State.

Richard Grenell @richardgrenell – For eight years Richard was the chief U.S. spokesperson at the United Nations, working for four U.S. Ambassadors there. Lots of interesting perspectives on his feed, especially on foreign policy issues.

Hugh Hewitt @hughhewitt – Hugh is not only a prominent nationally syndicated talk show host, and blogger, but he’s also a sharp legal mind as well. Great stuff.

Darrell Issa @darrellissa – Congressman Issa, especially in his role as Chairman of the House Government Oversight Committee, has a lot to tweet about, and he does!

Tony Katz @tonykatz – An outstanding radio talk show host, Tony bridges into another medium with the steady diet of substantive tweets.  

Stephen Kruiser @stephenkruiser – What can one say about the most prolific conservative stand up comedian on Twitter, hailing from the Peoples Republic of Santa Monica? Be sure to watch Kruiser Control.

Andrew Malcolm @AHMalcolm – Andrew has spent nearly four decades writing for three major newspapers, and is currently with Investors Business Daily. Andrew has forgotten more than most of us could ever hope to know!

Ron Nehring @RonNehring – Former Chairman of the California Republican Party, and GOP candidate for Lt. Governor.
