No, you are delusional. As I pointed out in post #721 above you were wrong about your claim that Santa Clara (24% more Dems than Repubs) was the 3rd most liberal county in the state, when in fact it is virtually tied with Napa (23% more Dems than Repubs) as the MOST CONSERVATIVE county of the 9 SFBA counties.

Now, let's see how Essick won in Sonoma Co, which is even more liberal with 30% more Dems than Repubs. Essick, apparently recently switched from Repub to Dem (like Hirokawa) said "I am not a progressive, I'm a moderate Democrat" (55 min in) (

About 19 min in, Essick gives a vigorous defense of allowing the law-abiding and trained get CCWs and carry -- he says not only do CCWers not cause any problems, they actually enhance public safety. He even mentioned that a county to their north (Mendo? Shasta?) has issued 3,000 CCWs and has had zero problems and a county to their east (Solano? Sacto?) that's issued 5,000 CCWs and has had zero problems. He's prepping them psychologically for 1,000s of CCWers without any problems. This sounds great even before you remember this is before a roomful of CA Dem voters/activists! He faced the issue and our opponents square on and stood his ground!

Especially after watching that video, I think Sonoma Co folk should be optimistic: I was thinking he'll go yellow, now I think he may even go -- perhaps not right away -- to light green!

Watch it all to see if I missed any CCW discussion in the 2nd 30 min of the presentation, or just watch those 2 segments I mentioned, and let me know what you think.
Never mistake being delusional for being optimistic.
