Allan Hoffenblum is Publisher of the California Target Book and owner of Allan Hoffenblum & Associates, a political consulting firm based in Los Angeles.

He is a graduate of the University of Southern California, earning a bachelor's in Telecommunications (TV Broadcasting). After college, he served four years in the U.S. Air Force as an Intelligence Officer, achieving the rank of Captain. He twice served in Vietnam and during his second tour was awarded the Bronze Star Medal for meritorious service.

The native Californian has been involved in California politics since 1968, when he served on the staff of the Los Angeles County Republican Party, responsible for organizing local “grass-roots” volunteer activities such as voter registration drives and get-out-the vote. 

In 1972, he served as the Los Angeles County Field Director for the California Committee to Re-elect President Nixon, responsible for overseeing a staff of fifteen area directors.

In 1973, after managing a successful special election campaign for state Assembly, he went to Sacramento to join the staff of the Assembly Republican Caucus of the California Legislature, achieving the position of Staff Director.

Between 1977-1978, Mr. Hoffenblum served as Political Coordinator of the California Republican Party.

Since 1979, he has been the owner of his own political consulting firm, managing scores of campaigns for federal, state and local office, and for state and local ballot measures.

In 2011, Los Angeles County Supervisor Mike Antonovich appointed Mr. Hoffenblum to serve on the Supervisorial District Boundary Review Committee, responsible for recommending how supervisorial district lines should be redrawn to account for population and demographic changes. He also served on this committee in 2001, 1991 and 1981.

Mr. Hoffenblum has been a faculty instructor on political campaign management at both UC Davis Extension and UCLA Extension. From 2003 through 2005, he appeared twice weekly as a political analyst with KCAL-TV, Channel 9, in Los Angeles and continues to be regularly interviewed on the politics of the day by CNN, FOX News, NPR and other news media outlets nationally and worldwide.

Mr. Hoffenblum no longer manages political races and now concentrates his time as Publisher and Co-Editor of the California Target Book®, a non-partisan, multi-volume subscription service that tracks and analyzes all federal and state legislative races in California.  Target Book subscribers include major corporations, labor unions, professional trade associations, political action committees (PACs), broadcast and print media, universities and libraries, along with elected officials, lobbyists, political consultants and pollsters.
