It’s a long-shot to expect Antonio Villaraigosa to peel enough votes from rank-and-file Democrats away from Gov. Gavin Newsom, the white elite’s last hope for governor.
Everyone knows that if Villaraigosa is going to become governor, he’s going to need Latino and GOP votes to do it.
That’s why Villaraigosa is spending so much time in the Central Valley with farmers. He’s made dozens of trips so far this year to the place white elites in the Bay Area despise and ignore.
According to columnist Dan Morain, it’s paying off. Political action committees representing pistachio growers, berry farmers and dairy operators have given him $20,000 or more each.
It’s good to have a candidate who respects everyone.
