Hapless #Republicans line up to sacrifice themselves California’s gubernatorial contest

This is funny.

Former Republican Assemblyman David Hadley is entering the 2018 California governor’s race, hoping to win support from moderate and establishment Republicans.

Hadley served one term in the Assembly representing a swing district on the Los Angeles County coast. After a career in the financial industry, he narrowly defeated a Democratic incumbent in 2014 before losing his re-election bid last year in a rematch.

Hadley’s entrance comes days after San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer declined a gubernatorial run. He isn’t as well known as Faulconer, but he’ll likely try to occupy the same political lane. Hadley’s voting record was more moderate than many legislative Republicans, and during last year’s campaign, he declared he would vote for neither Donald Trump nor Hillary Clinton.

He’s the fourth Republican in the governor’s race, joining businessman John Cox, former NFL player Rosey Grier, and Asm. Travis Allen (R-Huntington Beach).

Another California Republican Party epic fail is on the horizon.
