    California Republican ranks shrinking

    The decline of the California Republican Party took a symbolic step Friday, with the secretary of state's office announcing that registered Republicans account for less than 30 percent of the state's electorate ahead of Tuesday's election.

    *The party's share of registered voters fell from 31.37 percent in October 2008 to 29.36 percent for this election. Despite an overall increase of more than 940,000 voters in the state in the past four years, the number of registered Republicans fell from 5.43 million to 5.36 million.

    "The problem that we're facing isn't that Republicans are switching to Democrats," said state GOP Chairman Tom Del Beccaro, who recently said he would not seek another term.

    Heh. The GOP can't help lying to itself about EVERYTHING, can it?
