SCOTT BAUGH (The Republican)

Scott Baugh is an attorney in Newport Beach, California. In 1995, Mr. Baugh was elected to the California State Assembly. In 1999, Mr. Baugh was elected as the Assembly Republican Leader. As Republican Leader, Mr. Baugh set a unique tone of bi‐partisanship in California by uniting his Republican caucus in support of Democratic Assemblyman Robert Hertzberg as the unanimously elected Speaker of the California Legislature. Mr. Baugh served for 11 years as Chairman of the Republican Party of Orange County from 2004 ‐2015, where he raised over $20 million dollars for Republican candidates. Mr. Baugh also served on the presidential campaigns of President George W. Bush, Senator John McCain, Governor Mitt Romney, and Marco Rubio. Mr. Baugh currently serves as the Managing Director of State and Federal Government Relations for Strathspey Crown, LLC. Strathspey Crown is an innovative lifestyle healthcare‐focused growth equity firm that partners with thousands of board certified physicians across the globe in the commercialization of groundbreaking technologies and services for patients worldwide. Mr. Baugh is also the founding Chairman of the OC Marathon that operates a marathon, a half marathon, several 5k runs and a “Kid’s Run.” The Kids Run has over 7,000 participants from Orange County grammar schools and is designed to fight obesity by teaching children the importance of exercise and nutrition.

FPA Orange County
Robert Hertzberg (The Democrat)

Bob Hertzberg is the first former Assembly Speaker in 86 years to be elected to the California State Senate. What makes his political journey even more remarkable is that his two stints in the Legislature were separated by a dozen years of public policy activism as a private citizen, lawyer and businessman.

In between serving as Speaker and now as a Senator, Mr. Hertzberg engaged in extensive various global renewable energy endeavors which earned him recognition by CNBC European Business as one of its Top 100 Low‐Carbon Pioneers at Davos, and The Guardian Magazine in the UK listed Mr. Hertzberg as one of the “50 People Who Could Save The Planet.”

Now representing nearly 1 million residents of the San Fernando Valley in the Senate, Hertzberg remains committed to looking at the big challenges facing California. In the words of one veteran Sacramento columnist, he is “an intense bundle of energy, an all-night negotiator.” He chairs the Senate Committee on Governance and Finance and serves on the Committee on Elections and Constitutional Amendments; the Committee on Energy, Utilities and Communications; the Committee on the Judiciary; and the Committee on Natural Resources and Water.

Senator Hertzberg graduated from the University of Redlands and earned his law degree at Hastings College of Law. He also helped create one of the first solar companies in Los Angeles.

He was a law clerk to United States Supreme Court Justice Byron White, and to US Court of Appeals Judge George E.
