The unions ballot harvested the mid-term election. California is no longer a democracy as the candidates are no longer beholden to the voters, they are beholden to the ballot harvesters. How disgusting.

"I'm excited to roll up my sleeves and get to work and deliver on transportation and education and the things we really need, but also to work to represent the values of our district. To make sure we're getting the voice we need on the environment, on a woman's right to choose, on gun violence prevention,..."

I'm not excited at all.

The state already has too many environmental regulations,there is not enough taxpayer money to fund programs that Democrats "need", and there is no such thing as "gun violence" (firearms do not commit acts of violence). I didn't always agree with Baker but at least she didn't just tow/vote the party line while spinning it as "representing the values of our district".

Gun violence is violence where a gun was used. There is no such thing as gun rights. Guns don't have rights. :-)

I agree that California environmental regulations can go too far. For instance, a legal firm threaten to sue a number of banks because their outdoor ATM machines didn't have warning stickers that cautioned against breathing outdoor air.

If true im more concerned about those that voted baker out - she did, and was doing a good job. So if they are the same from an ideology perspective and baker was doing a good job, why would anyone in their right mind vote them out?

Not really. "Gun violence" is a political propaganda term used by so called progressives to shift the debate away from individuals who practice violence (already illegal and with any type of weapon) and on to society (guns) for supposedly "causing" it to take place. Anyone/anything associated with firearms is deemed "collectively guilty" of violence.

This is why we are getting misguided (and authoritarian) legislation to ban guns with folding stocks/pistol grips, wanting the CDC to study "gun violence" as a "public health problem", restrict magazine size, force law abiding people to turn in their legally owned property, sue gun manufacturers for the actions of criminals, ban gun shows at the Cow Palace, not allow gun shops to open/operate in communities, not issuing CCWs to trained applicants, etc. Bauer-Kahan (ignoring the 2nd Amendment like most members of her party) just wants more the same while erroneously referring to it as "safety", "prevention", "common sense","reasonable", etc.

Actually it lacks common sense, it's not reasonable, and none of it will "prevent" anything. It will not be complied with by criminals nor will it deter them from practicing violence.It's about about making private gun ownership socially unacceptable/prohibitive for the law abiding despite claims to the contrary.

The only reason Baker lost was she had an (R) next to her name.

My opinion, Rebecca Bauer-Kahan is a democratic carper bagger, post Donald Trump election as president.
