CA Recall

The recall is over. The GOP got handed a loss as big as the first election for Newsom.
Fifteen years the GOP haven't had a statewide office holder. Right down to State Dog Catcher. Their message is toxic. Yet they refuse to change. Anti-immigrant/minority when 60% of the state is minority? Pushing religious hate. Pushing low taxes while the infrastructure is collapsing. Complaining a bout budgets deficits when the state since Arnold left has been running surpluses?

They are a failed party but refuse to see that they don't have a message of hope or inclusion. I saw a new article crowing that 23 counties want Newsom out. Lassen county has a 30,000 population. 15,000 voter's total. My town has 5 times the population and votes democratic because the GOP message doesn't come close to matching their beliefs.

They will have to change or die off. Looks like they are willing to become total non-entities in CA.
