After spending millions, Republican John Cox continues to trail the Democrats.

As expected, the race to be the next governor of California is heating up. The two expected front-runners are way ahead of the California’s Republican Party’s last hope for relevance.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports that a poll of 520 likely primary voters released by SurveyUSA and sponsored by KABC-TV Los Angeles, KFSN-TV Fresno, KGTV-TV San Diego, KPIX-TV San Francisco and the San Diego Union-Tribune found that Gavin Newsom, Antonio Villaraigosa and John Cox are all within 6 percentage points of one another.

Newsom led the field with 21 percent of the vote, but was followed closely by fellow Democrat Antonio Villaraigosa with 18 percent. Republican John Cox came in third with 15 percent. Right-wing extremist Republican Travis Allen trails with 10 percent and Democrat John Chiang at 9 percent.

Let’s be honest here. Cox would not be in the running if it wasn’t for his ability to write big personal checks to his campaign.

In the end, California’s election law means the  top two finishers in the June 5 primary will go on to face each other in the November general election, regardless of political party.

Adios California Republican Party.

  1. writing big checks is what the demoRats do too. It works and it may at least get him in the prop 14 mandated top two. Only money and time will tell.
