Download audio (MP3)

San Francisco Republican Party Chair Harmeet Dhillon made history over the weekend. She became the first woman to be elected vice chair of the state GOP. A practicing Sikh of Indian descent, she endured several racial slurs during the course of her campaign. We talk to Dhillon about her unusual career -- including a stint as a board member with the ACLU -- her vision for the party, and her experiences as a Republican in San Francisco.

Host: Michael Krasny


  • Harmeet Dhillon, vice chair of the California Republican Party, chair of the San Francisco Republican Party and attorney at Dhillon & Smith LLP
