These are dark days for the Republican Party in California. Last week the Sacramento Bee reported that the GOP is behind both the Democratic Party and Independents in the number of registered voters. Last month we reported that there may be no Republican candidate for either governor or U.S. Senator on the ballot in November’s general election after the primaries are held tomorrow.
California is the state of Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan, and has a long history of Republican right-wing politics and politicians. However in today’s environment California Republicans are an endangered species. According to an article in the New York Times, “there may be no Republican candidate for governor or United States senator on the state’s ballot this November.”
