 Los Angeles Times, August 1, 2017: “In the race to be California’s next governor, Newsom raises more money than Villaraigosa, Chiang and Eastin combined”

Pro-“LGBT”/assisted-suicide Republican David Hadley is out. So is the legendary Rosey Grier, a conservative Christian. That leaves Huntington Beach assemblyman Travis Allen and San Diego financial whiz John Cox as the only two Republicans in the 2018 California governor’s race. And I strongly believe one of them needs to step down.

While Travis Allen has a mostly conservative record in Sacramento (video), John Cox’s rhetoric and positions are also mostly conservative (video). But if one of them doesn’t drop out of the governor’s contest, there may be no conservative at all on the November 2018 general election ballot.

Here’s why. There are four big-name liberal Democrats running — former Assembly Speaker and L.A. mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, former San Francisco mayor and current Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom, former state Controller and current state Treasurer John Chiang, and former assemblywoman and State Superintendent of Public Instruction Delaine Eastin.

Of these four Democrats, at least three of them will receive mountains of money from public and private unions, which they’ll use to rally Democrat voters to turn out for them. So you can expect the large majority of California voters in the June 2018 primary to vote for Democrats. The reality is, with statewide initiatives no longer permitted on the June ballot, Republican voters will lack issues to energize them, and might only comprise 30% of the electorate 10 short months from now.

Therefore, it is the wisest and safest course for California conservatives for them to demand there be only 1 viable Republican in the governor’s race. Because if there’s only one Republican, you can be virtually assured the November 2018 general election will pit a mostly conservative fighter against a liberal statewide politician. It’s simple math.



(Only 1 Republican runs and advances to the general election by winning the largest percentage of voters in the June 2018 primary election)

30% 1 mostly conservative Republican
25% Villaraigosa (Democrat)
– – – – – (“Top Two” cutoff of June 2018 primary election results)
20% Newsom (Democrat)
15% Chiang (Democrat)
10% Eastin (Democrat)

(Here, 2 Republicans run for governor, but in June 2018 neither are in the “top two” that advance to the November runoff election)

25% Villaraigosa
23% Newsom
– – – – –
16% Republican backed by state party
14% Mostly conservative Republican running independently
13% Chiang
9% Eastin

(3 Republicans run in the primary election and none advance to the general election)

25% Villaraigosa
23% Newsom
– – – – –
15% Chiang
12% Republican backed by state party
10% Mostly conservative Republican running independently
8% Second mostly conservative Republican running independently
7% Eastin

“For it is written in the Book of Psalms: ‘Let his dwelling place be desolate, And let no one live in it’; and, ‘Let another take his office.’ Therefore, of these men who have accompanied us all the time that the Lord Jesus went in and out among us, beginning from the baptism of John to that day when He was taken up from us, one of these must become a witness with us of His resurrection.” And they proposed two: Joseph called Barsabas, who was surnamed Justus, and Matthias. And they prayed and said, “You, O Lord, who know the hearts of all, show which of these two You have chosen to take part in this ministry and apostleship from which Judas by transgression fell, that he might go to his own place.” And they cast their lots, and the lot fell on Matthias. And he was numbered with the eleven apostles.
Acts 1:20-26
