  •  In California they did it to themselves (0+ / 0-)

    When I moved here in the early 80s, there were still plenty of Republican moderates, many from Silicon Valley.  But the party went harder and harder right at the local level, to the point that Gov. Schwarzeneggar (who was about as moderate as an R could get around here) didn't even bother going to their conventions.

    Now they don't have anyone to run for state offices that could win.  They usually would manage one of two, especially Attorney General, but they lost that one as well.

    They're out of money and closing their office in Sacramento.  Anyone wanting to run for statewide office now would just parachute in with their own cash and moneyed supporters, a la Meg Whitman or Carly Fiorina.  They wouldn't win against a qualified D, either.  Whitman spent $150M of her own money in that ridiculous campaign of hers, to the point that her overdone ads probably drove away voters to Brown.

    In capitalist America, bank robs you!
