First, though I voted to recall Newsom, I understood from the beginning we were embarking on a very difficult task. And though I am not a fan of CalMatters, I do agree with their assessment of why this failed- Newsom had a very good strategy. Add in uninformed and weak/frightened voting Democrats, voter harvesting, mail-in ballots, and illegals who voted (yes, give it time and Justice Watch will located those counties with more voters than citizens living there) and you have a winning recipe. I also underscore this article’s acknowledgment of fear used to vilify Larry Elder. After all, what Democrat voter can’t resist holding onto Larry Elder being labeled a White Supremacist? It’s actually comical that Newsom utter the words after his victory: "We said yes to diversity, we said yes to inclusion, we said yes to pluralism. We said yes to all those things that we hold dear as Californians, and I would argue, as Americans…” Really, you don’t think Gavin that you and your voting Dems didn’t act the slightest bit racist? Here is a perfect time that the word racist isn’t overused.

If there is any indication that California will never recover from this slow motion free-fall, this is it. This response to a heightened flu virus is going to continue to November 2024. It’s been very very good for the Democrats, so why get rid of it now?

I wonder what the incoming volume of calls to U-Haul are this morning?

"Diversity" and "inclusion" is only applicable for Newsom and so called progressives if you agree with their policies and positions. Otherwise, expect to be referred to as a "racist", "gun nut", "science denier", "greedy", "misogynist", etc. It's comical that with the problems the state has regarding homelessness, crime, cost of living, water, energy, etc. (under one party rule), voters send the same people back somehow expecting a different result.

Republicans lost because they did not have any good candidates and they did not offer any solutions to the problems in California. They cannot win by reiterating list of problems without offering solutions. Another major reason they lost is because their leading candidate aligned himself with Trump, Abbott and DeSantis. DeSantis is an anti-science bully facilitating deaths of Floridians. Abbott is the same + forcing his version of healthcare and life on women against the constitution. Don’t make masks mandatory but force your version of healthcare and life on women - do you think Americans cannot see through this BS? That is why majority of Californian and Americans reject Republicans.

Sales force is now paying for its employees who want to get out of Texas.
