So far, the Republican contenders challenging California Governor Gavin Newsom have put up a relatively united front. However, that came crashing down on Tuesday when some GOP contenders took aim at frontrunner Larry Elder during a debate in San Diego.

Fox News reports:


Cox took aim at Elder for skipping out on a another debate, saying, “We don’t need more media personalities who don’t show up to meet the press.”

And asked about Elder’s controversial position to abolish the minimum wage, Cox said, “I sure wish Larry were here to defend this position, and he should be.”

Faulconer and Kiley also disagreed with Elder’s stance in favor of scrapping any minimum wage, with Faulconer describing the position as “indefensible.”

The showdown took place the day after ballots in the recall contest started being sent to the 22 million registered voters in the nation’s most populous state and amid a surge in campaign activity, as the Republican replacement candidates have stepped up their attacks on the governor and Newsom kicked into higher gear his efforts to encourage Democrats and other supporters to cast ballots. Newsom and his allies acknowledge that they need a strong turnout to counter Republican voters motivated to cast ballots in hopes of ousting the governor.

Elder has pledged not to participate in any debates before the recall election unless Gov. Gavin Newsom does as well.

Larry Elder would be a great Governor. He is not a career politician.

I haven’t heard one viable plan to restore our state from these candidates. They’re all fearful of stepping on the toes of Globalists who seek to dissolve our borders, and subordinate the U.S. population to foreign administrations. If I had the keys to that CHP guarded, palatial office in Sacramento (It would not be a long move, the office is four miles away..) liberal Californians would be in a constant state of militant agitation and vocal/violent protest. That’s one means to regiment any candidate for a California seat, but I would just put on ear muffs, and seal our borders, close down casinos and lotteries, get rid of our “Sister Nations” (Israel, for one) clear our streets of homeless people, illegal aliens and gangs, repeal all state laws benefiting specific elements of our population, including gays, and forbid any company in our state from either hiring non-citizens, or sending their jobs to foreign countries. My backers would not arise from that labyrinth of cozy offices embedded within our Capitol, rather, a fed up, legislatively oppressed, culturally dystopian, impoverished and progressively disarmed and terrorized population would welcome such a breath of fresh air.

You’d be GREAT, David, I have No doubt.
BUT….. we are simply TOO FAR gone. Sorry, but the Majority of our beloved country is a nearly Complete dunbass that has NO clue HOW things “should be” , and HOW things “WORK”.

My question is WHY WON’T ELDER DEBATE ? — if he’s not open with the citizens now what would he be like in office ? Seems to me he would want to get HIS AGENDA out there -not unless he doesn’t want all of the other candidates jumping in on HIS ideas ? It’s all about TRANSPARENCY these days.

He WILL debate – Newsome. All the rest are irrelevant primetime entertainment.
