California conservatives will hold conference featuring Bannon despite coronavirus concerns - 2020-03-14
The conservative group plans to soldier on with a conference of more than 200 next weekend in Tulare County that includes former White House adviser Steve Bannon and indicted former Trump aide George Papadopoulos on topics that include "the Deep State."
As California organizations cancel meetings left and right and the World Health Organization has labeled the Covid-19 spread a pandemic, CRA Executive Director Carl Brickey said that the group will take plenty of precautions to protect members, but dubbed the response to the coronavirus "an overreaction."
"What's going to happen when we truly have a public health crisis?" he asked in an interview. "People will just go, 'Oh jeez,' and they won't take it seriously."
