There were many nasty shocks for California Republicans in the midterm elections of 2018. And now President Donald Trump is being blamed — not just for losses of congressional seats but also for causing the Republican Party of California to suffer a “political nuclear holocaust.” According to some political experts the GOP in the Golden State is at or near death, and will have a very hard time recovering.
The California Republican Party is now dead. The most recent evidence of this appeared last night as California Democrats completed their sweep of the congressional delegation in Orange County. Democrat Gil Cisneros defeated Young Kim, a Republican, to capture a fourth seat in a county that had once been one of the most conservative in the nation.
