Gavin Newsom Celebrates His Primary Win, Declares California America’s ‘Antidote’

California Governor Gavin Newsom (D) celebrated the news of his first primary victory on Tuesday by declaring his state to be the “antidote” to what is plaguing America – which he says is the Republican Party and the things it represents.

Newsom tweeted:

California also leads the nation in average fuel prices and poverty. It suffers from blackouts during peak demand times, thanks to overambitious green energy policies that Newsom himself admitted to be a problem.

Despite its wealth and high taxes, the state is at an all-time low in academic achievement and suffers from a wave of violent crime. Its demographic diversity masks a political monoculture that has seen the Democratic Party rule virtually unopposed, driving an exodus of small-business owners and middle-class families who cannot afford the cost of living.

Although Newsom has imposed — and defied — draconian coronavirus restrictions, the state hasn’t fared much better than states that haven’t imposed such lockdowns, or that have ended their lockdowns after a short period and reopened their economies.

The state is also in the midst of a crippling drought and has failed to address an ongoing wildfire problem.

Newsom faces a runoff in November against the runner-up in the primary election, which has yet to be determined.
