I actually agree with Chavez on this, even though I don’t think he is anywhere close to being an acceptable choice in this race.
This is yet another glaring example of the state Republican party blowing a great opportunity and refusing to spend money in a race that they could conceivably win, if they attempted to fight and if they found the right candidate.
I don’t think that right candidate is Assemblyman Chavez, who recently joined the RINO chorus in condemning Trump for daring to ask that our country put our national security interests first and going as far as saying that he wouldn’t vote for him if he gets the nomination.
Chavez is the quintessential RINO! He’s pro-abortion, he refused to lift a finger when our Marine was languishing in a filthy Mexican prison last year, he’s a strong supporter of amnesty, and he recently voted with the Dems to give free taxpayer funded healthcare to illegals.
There is actually a fourth Republican in the race that oddly never gets mentioned in these articles and his name is Phil Wyman. This guy actually is a conservative, from everything that I know and have studied. I also spent about an hour talking to him at the state GOP convention last Summer in Anaheim and found him and his record very appealing.
The bottom line is that whoever runs in this race on the Republican side to fill Boxer’s seat, should have the indirect full support of their party and shouldn’t be discouraged from running, or have trouble raising money because of the influence of party bosses!
This idea that Boxer’s seat is Kamala Harris’ seat in waiting and that it’s a waste of time for any Republican to even attempt to run, is ridiculous and shows how stupid and idiotic these consultants are in the GOP!
A Republican can win this seat and probably has just as much of a chance of winning as Harris and Sanchez! The problem is we have a Republican party that refuses to recruit a solid well-liked and influential conservative to run and approaches this race as an underdog, which serves no ones interests!
If you’ve ever wondered why Republicans can’t seem to win statewide office again, please don’t make the mistake of thinking it is mostly because of the heavy registration advantage of the Dems!
That might be part of it, but I would argue a largely part is because California has a weak and incompetent Republican party! I am convinced that if Republicans went after these open seats with as much vigor and aggressiveness as the Dems, and tried to raise as much money, we wouldn’t be discussing why the GOP in California is at such a pathetic state!
