Back when California was a swing state, it was common to have a gold Stater on the national ticket. Not that it makes all that much of a difference. Dwight Eisenhower will win two times regardless of his spouse, but it is a matter of recording that he runs with Richard Nixon, the Pride of Yorba Linda.
Later, Nixon won two duties, carrying his state twice, as well as having been transplant Californian Ronald Reagan.
Prior to Nixon’s first elimination of the veep, then California Governor Earl Warren landed the number two on the Republican ticket with Thomas Dewey. Despite the famous Chicago Daily Tribune title In other words, Dewey did not defeat Truman. And Warren did not bring his state (the dominant Democratic ticket equals less than 18,000 votes, only half of the 1% of statewide tally).
The problem is: Warren and Nixon’s speakers on their respective tickets have not been different producers. Americans liked Ike and found the dull Dewey. The same can prove the truth for California Sen Kamala Harris, now she was introduced as the partner of Joe Biden
But maybe not. There is still something about California.
The Knee temptation-jerk is labeled the choice of Harris as a Sop for a trusted democratic black vote Poorly implemented in 2016 Once faced the uninspiring and monochrome Clinton-Kane ticket, plus the Biden campaign put at the end of pressure to make the selection not just a woman, but A woman of color.
If so, then we have a problem that is black…
