The Orange County native has been active in conservative causes and campaigns since he was a teenager and, quite often as an adult, leading them. After stints in the Pentagon under Ronald Reagan and later on the staff of former Rep. Christopher Cox (R.-Calif.), he spent several years working for a defense contractor in Orange County.
Two years ago, DeVore, a frequent contributor to HUMAN EVENTS, was seeking a conservative candidate and became the first California Republican office-holder to back Fred Thompson for President. Now in his third term as a state legislator, DeVore defied liberal Republican Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s call for a record-high tax increase in ’09 and later campaigned vigorously against the tax hike when it was on the statewide ballot. (The proposal lost resoundingly, forcing Schwarzenegger and the Democratic leadership in the state legislature to make spending cuts to balance the budget.)
