I expect a lot of Republicans in CA will be voting for DiFi’s opponent now. She will lose.
“I expect a lot of Republicans in CA will be voting for DiFis opponent now. She will lose.”
I was actually going to vote for Fineswine, because her opponent is a young illegal alien. My thinking was, she’s 85 and will not likely survive for another six years, giving us the remote opportunity to try and elect a Republican. If DeLeon gets the seat, he will be there for 40 years! But now I don’t know if I can actually hold my nose and vote for her. Most likely I just won’t vote for Senator.
Until Babs Boxer decided to pack it in, in a state with the largest number of Hispanic voters in the country, we had, for decades, a couple of Secular Progressive Jews for Senators. Go figure!
I was predicating my vote for DiFi on the fact that, at 85, I don't expect her to finish her term, if elected, and the governor might appoint someone a little less loony than deLeon. But in light of her recent shenanigans with Kavanaugh, I'm rethinking my position. Better to have a straight-up Socialist in there than an unhinged and increasingly feeble "mainstream" Liberal.
Besides, Bernie Sanders needs a fellow traveler in the Senate to keep him company.
