With the passing of Sen. Dianne Feinstein, her Senate seat will be open for the first time in decades. The governor of California selected a temporary replacement, but three Democrats are currently fighting for the party’s nomination.
California hasn’t elected a Republican to the U.S. Senate since 1988. However, the growing discontentment of residents could create an opportunity.
Residents are overwhelmed by homelessness, rampant crime, and a staggered economy. Could it be time for voters to switch sides? One MLB legend thinks so. And he plans on making history in 2024.
From Fox News:
Steve Garvey helped the Los Angeles Dodgers win the World Series in 1981 to snap a 16-year championship drought for one of baseball’s most storied franchises…
Garvey on Tuesday announced he is taking on a new challenge as he hopes to move his corner office from first base to Washington, D.C., in a campaign for U.S. Senate in California…
Garvey, 74, said he’s talked to Californians up and down the state and that they’d tell him it was refreshing for him to ask their opinions on the state instead of getting told what’s good for them.
World Series champion Steve Garvey announced his bid for U.S. Senate out of California. Garvey has been traveling across the state, listening to voters, and promising to represent them and “their quality of life.”
Garvey slammed current California leaders, blaming them for a “stagnant” quality of life in the Golden State. That’s due to far-left, progressive policies, many major California cities have suffered in recent years. Residents and businesses are fleeing. Major chains are closing their doors.
It appears Garvey sees the current crisis as an opportunity to turn things around for the state. Currently, three familiar Democrat faces are fighting for the nomination, including Rep. Adam Schiff. Four Republicans are also running for their party’s nomination.
A notable icon from outside the political world might attract voters. Garvey is not a politician. He is considered an MLB hero. He could provide a refreshing change that can shake up the politics that have mired the state for years.
Garvey pointed to his baseball career to prove he is “dependable and passionate.” Republican voters will decide if they want him to run next March. The seat will be filled in the general election in November of 2024.
