OK, this will truly be a test. If California elects a left wing nut like Gavin Newsom to a state-wide office, then there is truly no hope for this state.

The state is teetering on bankruptcy, the loons in the Legislature are considering a bill to implement socialized medicine with not even a inkling of how they would pay for it, and the state's bond rating is already junk. Maybe the next thing is we will have to get a loan - just like the New York Times - from Carlos Slim at usury rates. More likely, they might have to borrow from the drug cartels.

Its too bad Karl Marx or Chairman Mao aren't alive - we could elect one of them Governor!

My only reason for not voting for newsom for anything is that he had a sexual affair with his best friends wife...he can't be trusted.

If Newsom gets elected, I just may have to leave this state. I've lived in the Bay Area all my life and it just keeps getting weirder and weirder.

Please....don't vote for that nutjob!

This guy is an idiot. First of all if the state votes in Brown again and then this guys they will be the laughing stock of the western world.

He has no idea how to manage, he is a champagne socialist (yeah he is rich..... how about giving your money over to the people comrade... oops yeah sorry not you just the middle class has to do that) just like the rest of his nut job backers (Pelosi and Boxer).

If I ever hear another American say Europeans pay more tax than us in California. I laugh...... we pay more than the rest of the world... And a Brown/Newsom combo will raise them even more........
