San Diego Republicans name Francis Barraza as executive director

The Republican Party's executive committee named former Finance Director Francis Barraza to the post of executive director.

"Francis Barraza is a young, up-and-coming leader with an inspiring vision to broaden the reach and appeal of our party," said Chairman Tony Krvaric. "She shares our belief that there is no such thing as an 'off year' in politics and is dedicated to doing the work required to lay the groundwork for Republican victories in 2014 and beyond."

Barraza is a San Diego native with more than a decade of political experience. She has worked on campaigns throughout California at all levels; most recently on the June 2010 Yes on G campaign in Chula Vista to ban discriminatory project labor agreements and serving as a Latino Field Representative in San Diego/Imperial County for Meg Whitman's November 2010 campaign for governor.

During 2011 and 2012 Barraza served as the finance director for the Republican Party of San Diego County, being instrumental in the successful fundraising efforts of the party, eclipsing $4 million in the two-year cycle.

She earned a bachelor’s degree in political science from UC Irvine and a J.D. from UC Davis School of Law.
