Very nice thanks for that.

Why are the most red parts, also the most blue parts? Also they were probably rigged both directions. They wanted the republican against the dem rather than risking the villerosa (sp) runoff. Maybe those are the most corrupt counties.

Most of rural California is republican, its the cities that fuck the rest of the state

But look how inverted they are in the pictures. The bright red and the bright blue are almost the same exact places. Somehow the most republican for governor were the most democratic for senate

Look up the population of these counties: Orange, San Diego, riverside, San Bernardino.

I think you'll find they are not as rural as you would think.

Interesting observation. I don't know much about Villerosa, why would the fixers want a republican on the ballot instead of him?

So they can have some "good news" election night in the resistance news agencies?

He's Hispanic. He was former Mayor of Los Angeles. Everyone was very surprised he lost by so much. His congratulations speech was actually very nice and even complemented the republican. He would have been the first Hispanic Governor since the 1800s. His family has been in the country for over 100 years. All of which I saw on local news last night in LA.

I suspect that whatever lost him the election in LA that they don't like him for is still in play. Maybe he's a normal person. I also think that as much as the Hispanic vote in encouraged and functions well, they are clearly not actually liking them to serve in highest positions. Sounds like slavery and bigotry.

I suspected they wanted the republican and not vilarosa, just like they wanted trump in 2016, so the other guy, their guy, would win for sure. Same play book.
