Psychopompous: Remember when a person didn't feel the need to follow elections in other states because the Republican Party wasn't actively trying to overthrow democracy and install a plutocratic theocracy?

Pepperidge Farm remembers, vaguely.

I wonder how many voters wrote in Newsom, even though he wasn't a valid write-in. I can tell you there was at least one.

Wade_Wilson: Mrtraveler01: The recall probably would have had a chance if the GOP ran someone who was more moderate like Schwarzenegger.

Instead they went the Trump route and backed some hack talk show host.

Anyone like Schwarzenegger wouldn't stand a snowball's chance in today's GOP.


And that's the bind the GOP is in these days.

Pretty much everyone likes the french laundry and if possible a person should try at least once. Personally I prefer Per Se.

It sure is helpful that Republicans seem to have a knack for selecting unappealing candidates.

Sergeant Angle: Election fraud claims in 3..2..1..


-1, -2, -3... They were claiming it for months now. Elder was the best thing the Newsom campaign could ever hope for, and when the polls flipped, the "rigged" bullshiat started in earnest. Imagine that.

Skeleton Man: Sergeant Angle: Election fraud claims in 3..2..1..

Maybe there was election fraud. I find it hard to believe that 33% of Californians are death cultists. But I've never been there myself, so.


The rural parts of the state tend to be just as red as any red state, especially the far north and the Central Valley.

In fact, if you drive down any major highway in the Central Valley, you'll likely see several "Congress created dust bowl" signs, arguing that the California drought is a hoax intended to put hardworking farmers out of business so that they'll have to go on welfare and become Democrats.

fragMasterFlash: Are they going to have an insurrection at the California state capitol now?


I was at the CA state capitol when Trump was declared the loser. There was a small MAGA rally at the steps and an angry voice over a PA, and a few Trumper trucks rolling coal on L St., yelling at peds. Peds were mostly ignoring or laughing at them which just made em madder and gun their engine. I have video of this.

Sanguine Dawn: I know a guy who did phone-banking for Newsom. And he farking hates Newsom. That should tell you just how toxic Larry Elder was to Californians.


As a minority, I'm a little ashamed and embarrassed that Larry Elder ran on the platform he had, and as a Republican. I'm glad he lost, despite me knowing the many flaws that Newsom has. The Republicans seems to want to run the worst candidates, then cry voter fraud when they lose.

Which is why I'd bet that in 2024, the Republican Presidential nominee will be someone shiatty, like DeSantis. Then when he loses, the GOP will scream that the vote was rigged against them.

RolandTGunner: Great, now California needs to change their stupid recall rules.


California State Senator:

Irrespective of the preliminary recall election results tonight, Assembly Elections chair @Marc_Berman and I as chair of the Senate Elections and Constitutional Amendments Committee will release a joint statement tomorrow morning discussing our plans to fix a broken recall system

I'm so sorry that Democrats didn't feed into your projection that a black man's mere interest in becoming governor, no matter how detestable, would automatically earn liberal support.

Notice the republican shill giving Elder a free pass on his hatred of disabled people and other horrible positions.

Just like he went well out of his way to give the insurrectionists a free pass on  January 6th.

Quick and Dirty: I have a story about ripping apart a rotisserie chicken at a picnic in a graveyard, while watching classic movies being screened on the wall of a mausoleum -- everyone there was horrified, but they still ate the chicken -- even the guy with the weepy eye.


Frankly, that sounds awesome. Who wouldn't want to do that? Please say you were watching things like Dracula, or Frankenstein, or Night of the Living Dead.

His Trumpian approach to his shiatty campaign has nothing to do with him being black.

Nice try.

But he was one of the good ones!


He was a black guy running as a white guy.

5.5m so far have voted for no to the recall, and 1.9m have voted for Elder.

I can't wait to hear how this was "stolen" from him though.

Quick and Dirty: Well, geez. I'm not even a big fan of "Cali" and I'm super mad at the person who came up with the word "Cali" -- spent a lot of years there -- lived a couple of years in L.A. and it's a whole different ecosystem.

I have a story about ripping apart a rotisserie chicken at a picnic in a graveyard, while watching classic movies being screened on the wall of a mausoleum -- everyone there was horrified, but they still ate the chicken -- even the guy with the weepy eye.

Like I said: It's an entire different world over there, so I'm not sure what I was expecting from you Californians, but on the whole I'm proud of you. Good job.

It's hard to believe but California actually had more Trump voters than Texas in 2020, by nearly 100k.

The entire central valley outside of like Sacramento is a depressing shiat show. Drive on 5 between the Bay and LA and you get to see it for yourself. Awful drive and all the towns are hick central.

The numbers are so bad for the GOP, this was Elder abuse.


Even Orange County, which has long been a Republican stronghold (only sorta in the last few years) went over 55% no.  (Subject to change as more returns come in.)
