For when he runs for Sec of State for CA?

They didn't run anyone against Feinstein.

If they do what they normally do, and run a straight Repub, they will lose.

They need to find a old school Dem, who doesn't come with so much baggage.

Isn't there any Dem in educational establishment or something who isn't a total slimeball?

A guy like SJ mayor Chuck Reed, or some show biz figure, or even sports hero. Someone with even a bit of "name recognition" and some public speaking ability.

IMO the republican party in this state is dead. the last election proved that. sorry to say it but we are in a dem majority state permantly. the people here are entirely too stupid to vote for any other party.

Which is why it would do conservatives well to seek out Blue Dog type Democrats to run for office in CA like the OP proposes.

Since CA is one party rule, getting into a statewide office here is more analogous to how one gets a position in the Politburo Standing Committee of China than it is to actual democracy.

Republicans in CA are a failure because they hang their hats on issues like opposing abortion, which don't sell in this state and have probably killed the Republican brand here for the next two generations.

^^ this. Opposing gay marriage, abortion, and going after illegal aliens makes the GOP a non-starter in Cali.

This thread started someplace reasonable, and then drifted into familiar territory.

Unless someone has the ear of Thomas del Beccaro (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tom_Del_Beccaro), discussions here seem un-influential.
