The latest poll shows Larry Elder, the Republican Club’s endorsed candidate, beating John Cox by more than 3 to 1, or 23 percent to 7 pecent.
“The decline of California isn’t the fault of its people;” Elder said, “Our government is what’s ruining the Golden State.”
Elder cited schools, crime, homelessness, and government scandals as the biggest problems: “Our schools are closed to both students and their parents. Our streets aren’t safe from rising violent crime or the disaster of rising homelessness. And the scandals of Sacramento aren’t going to stop on their own. It’s time to tell the truth. We’ve got a state to save.”
