Gavin Newsom should be Democrats’ replacement for Biden, top Dem strategist suggests
Fox News ^ | June 22, 2022 | Anders Hagstrom

Posted on 06/22/2022 2:49:11 PM PDT by Baladas

Listen to this article 0:00 / 2:23 1X BeyondWords California Gov. Gavin Newsom may be the Democratic Party's strongest choice to run for president if President Joe Biden bows out, longtime party strategist David Axelrod says.

Axelrod, who served as former President Barack Obama's chief strategist, made the comments in a Wednesday statement to The New York Times. The 2024 presidential race has been a burning question for Democrats, with no clear heir to Biden and many party members skeptical of whether the president could or should run for a second term.

"If the president were not to run, it’s hard to imagine that Newsom would not be sorely tempted to enter the race," Axelrod said Wednesday.

agree with Addlerod here, Newsom is the perfect Dem 2024 candidate - if he were VP now instead of Kamala, they'd be making this move right now.

That works for me. Most of America has zero in common with the fruits and nuts in California.

He’s a White male, isn’t that problematic?

I’m sure the rest of the country will love Gavin as much as California does.

Axelrod knows they’re going to be crushed in November and again in two years.

Yeah, but he locks down the vast neurotic female vote. :)

They'll add AOC as his VP and tell the Blacktivists: "Sorry, we tried it your way but we need Hispanics to win this time and keep your cash flowing.

It is what Nancy Pelosi groomed him for.

I was really hoping Twosome Newsome would be recalled, which would essentially kill his political career, but I knew better. Larry Elder didn’t have a snoballs chance in Hell behind the Pink Curtain of the communist People’s Democratic Republic of California.

A new prayer; dear Lord let the next Dem candidate be Newsom. Amen

Yes, it is.
So I would suggest that a rotten eggplant would be a
better pick than Biden OR Newsom.

(Eggplants are black, you see...)

In California it’s no secret that Pelosi’s nephew Gavin the Hair Model is planning to run for President.

Newsome’s big problem will be if Joe announces that he will run again in 2024. Directly challenging Biden will alienate the heavy hitters who back Biden and there’s more of them than people realize.

Biden is article 25’d. Headboard harris steps in and appoints newsom as VP (would he be confirmed?). Headboard gets new job as head of UN, Supreme court justice, whatever. Welcome Resident newsom.

Then gavin can stand in front of America’s house that just burnt down and smile and giggle like he did in front of a Californian house thus last year.

He spent 1 billion of California tax money on masks from China. Those masks never showed up, gee wonder where that money went,,,,

His aunt Pelosi was a Baltimore mafia mob boss daughter and Gavin is just as crooked, this ilk has cartel written all over them.

These people make Mussolini look like a piker.

I think he’s the only choice they have unless Stacey Abrams wins. I think you might see Biden bow out after the halfway point for Kamala.

He has good (cough, cough) press and is an easy, relaxed deceiver.

He has no observable conscience, and seems just fine with the big cons.

For those of you who don’t know, Newsom is a worthless POS.

Everyone in our state leadership is these days.

There may be a few decent Republicans. I’m not even sure
of that.

Yes and Newsom will be a formidable candidate. He’s young and handsome and tall (DeSantis is unfortunately short and the taller Presidential candidate always wins the popular national vote), and he has lots of Silicon Valley and Hollywood money.

He will be the candidate and he has a good chance of winning. Get ready for him. I’m in CA and so I’m used to him and his ineffectiveness and leftism (so I’m also used to Biden for the same reason).

I’ve been warning this since he “won” the recall.

He’s all they got.

And that would be the final nail in the coffin for this country.
