THE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF CALIFORNIA - This site is dedicated to exposing the continuing Marxist Revolution in California and the all around massive stupidity of Socialists, Luddites, Communists, Fellow Travelers and of Liberalism in all of its ugly forms.

"It was a splendid population - for all the slow, sleepy, sluggish-brained sloths stayed at home - you never find that sort of people among pioneers - you cannot build pioneers out of that sort of material. It was that population that gave to California a name for getting up astounding enterprises and rushing them through with a magnificent dash and daring and a recklessness of cost or consequences, which she bears unto this day - and when she projects a new surprise the grave world smiles as usual and says, "Well, that is California all over."

Democrats target 7 congressional seats held by GOP

The Making of a One-Party State

(Los Angeles Times)  -  The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has released a list of top targets looking ahead to the 2018 elections, and California's Republican delegation is a big part of it.

Of the 61 Republicans Democrats are looking to unseat nationwide, seven are Californians:

  • CA-10: Jeff Denham (R-Turlock)
  • CA-21: David Valadao (R-Hanford)
  • CA-25: Steve Knight (R-Palmdale)
  • CA-39: Ed Royce (R-Fullerton)
  • CA-45: Mimi Walters (R-Irvine)
  • CA-48: Dana Rohrabacher (R-Costa Mesa)
  • CA-49: Darrell Issa (R-Vista)
All of these lawmakers represent districts carried by Hillary Clinton in the general election, with Valadao's district voting for Clinton over Trump by double-digit margins. Many of them seemed to win despite Trump in 2016 , out-polling him by at least several percentage points.

Issa and Denham won by the closest margins of the group, with Issa eking out a 51-49 win over Doug Applegate, who has already said he'll run again in 2018 . Denham overcame two-time challenger Michael Eggman by less than five percentage points.

Denham, Issa and Valadao were also among the top spenders in California on a per-vote basis in the November election, spending well above $30 per each vote they received.

GOP incumbents could not be defeated in a landslide Democrat year in California. It is doubtful that Dems would win seats in an off year election when their voters are more likely to stay home.

The Middle Class Abandons the GOP
Middle class Congressional districts around California have abandoned the Republican Party.  Formerly GOP districts from Sacramento to Santa Barbara to Ventura to Palm Springs and San Diego rejected the GOP and sent Democrats to both Washington and Sacramento.
