The California Republican Convention begins this weekend in Burlingame with the theme "rebuild, renew, reclaim." With Democratic Governor Jerry Brown boasting high approval ratings, Republicans face a tough road in defeating Brown and retaking other statewide offices. We discuss the upcoming convention and challenges facing California Republicans in the coming year, and talk about the future of the national GOP five years after the Tea Party movement shook up U.S. politics.
