THE ASSOCIATED PRESS -- Mitt Romney, John McCain and other prominent Republicans have distanced themselves from Donald Trump, but the billionaire businessman's list of delegates from California includes Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, the No. 2 leader in the U.S. House.

The list of Trump's delegates released Monday evening by the secretary of state also includes Rep. Darrell Issa, a California congressman, and Dennis Revell, a son-in-law of Ronald Reagan.

In California, presidential campaigns select delegates that are awarded in the June 7 primary based on the outcome of voting in its 53 congressional districts and the statewide tally.

Trump's list also former Congressman Doug Ose, Harmeet Dhillon, vice chair of the California GOP, and state Senate GOP leader Jean Fuller.
