Support for both Republicans in the California Governor's race has nearly doubled in recent polls.
Assemblyman Travis Allen, R-Huntington Beach, was a close third behind Republican businessman John Cox of Rancho Santa Fe in the latest UC Berkeley poll. Whichever candidate comes in second in the June election will move ahead to November, likely facing Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom.
Allen, who grew up in Chula Vista, is one of the leaders behind the effort to repeal the state gas tax. One of his top priorities includes reversing prison-realignment, which shifted custody for low-level offenders from state prisons to local jails. On the campaign trail Allen has also touted a plan to build state-run institutions for homeless people.
Allen joins Midday Edition in advance of this weekend's state Republican convention in San Diego.
