Curt Pringle, The Last Republican Speaker of the Assembly
Curt Pringle, who arrived in Sacramento as a brash 29-year-old conservative Republican in 1988, became the first Republican Assembly speaker in a generation, and likely the last Republican to hold that post for many years to come.
This three part interview was conducted by Dan Morain in Pringle’s Anaheim office on June 22, 2023. This video oral history was made possible by a grant from the California State Library. It has been edited for clarity and continuity.
