Gavin Newsom spent the last two days talking about “rights” being taken away. This confused me. I thought we were in a State of Emergency where the concept of rights doesn’t exist.

Newsom rushed out a new campaign ad calling the leaked Supreme Court opinion “the defining issue of the 2022 election.” He even blasted Democrats for not being equally hyperbolic, asking, “Where the hell is my party?” Many likened it to a presidential campaign launch.

If elected to Congress, I intend to fight Biden just as hard as I’ve fought Newsom. And if Newsom has any inkling of replacing Biden, I will be there to quash it – to make sure everyone knows just how badly he’s ruined California.

In fact, we just learned our population declined by 117,552 last year. It’s not that we no longer have good weather; Ron DeSantis called Newsom’s home of San Francisco a “dumpster fire,” which is certainly too mild a description.

Our hysterical governor aside, I believe the defining issue in 2022 is this: will we as a nation continue down the disastrous path of California, or will we return to the Founding principles that made America the greatest country in the world.

I’m hopeful we’ll make the right choice, as wokeness gives way to a reawakening. Two powerful forces are about to meet: a state and nation run badly amok, and a movement of citizens determined to right the ship.

I want to be a Congressman for all of the California conservatives and patriots who are part of that movement. This is the time to fight, and it’s a privilege to be fighting with you.
