California Governor Candidates: Jerry Brown – freaked out liberal Mayor of Oakland, Atty General who likes to sue to stop development.
Meg Whitman: Admittedly Liberal Republican
Lt. Governor Candidates: Gavin Newsome – Mayor of Bankrupt San Francisco, sanctuary city where innocent citizens are murdered by illegal alien felons and who violated state law by Marrying people at City Hall (when he was about to be overrun by scandal)
Abel Maldonado: Sold his vote on the largest tax increase in state history for Prop 14. 22% score from the CRA in 2009, worse than some democrats.
Atty General: Kamala Harris – hates punishing criminals, and part of the SF establishment behind the maintenance of their sanctuary city
Steve Cooley: reportedly a social Liberal. Out of the above six – easily the most conservative, taking stands in favor of border security, three-strikes and enforcing existing laws regardless of whether he agrees with them
US Senate – Barbara Boxer, Freaked Out Liberal from San Francisco. Hates the Military, 28 years in office
Carly Fiorina – finally, we hit a top-down conservative.
The question is – are the liberal Republicans enough of a contrast from the Freaked-Out Liberal slate from San Francisco?
I think Cooley can make that case.
Carly makes that case easily.
Maldonado and Meg Whitman?
Failure to have a USP (Unique Selling Proposition) other than Jerry Brown is bad – will not fly.
