While I haven’t listened to Rush in years (Limbaugh, not the holy triumvirate), I am wondering how many may participate in one of his political calls to arms: Operation Chaos.
California’s Republican Party doesn’t make it easy to vote Republican if you are “non-partisan” (CA’s version of “Independent”). The state GOP seems to be protecting themselves from lefties participating in disruptive voting as you cannot vote in the current Republican primary unless you are registered as a GOP voter, meaning you can only vote for the GOP slate. The California Democrats however welcome both Democrats and Independents which means Bernie has a stronger likelihood of winning as he has done in other “open-primary” states.
For those outside of Rio Linda, Hillary and Bernie are polling in a statistical dead heat before the CA primary on Tuesday. While Clinton’s nomination is a fait accompli, many would like to see her stumble across the convention finish line severely weakened after losing her most recent primaries accompanying her potential indictment.
This would undoubtedly be a moral blow to her campaign, which could strengthen Bernie’s hand in contesting Hillary’s superdelegates at the convention. Whether he stays in the race if he loses tomorrow is to be determined.
I don’t know if El Rushbo has been discussing this, but this may be the only time I can recently remember CA playing a role in a Presidential campaign. How many conservatives will participate in Operation Chaos 2016 before sitting back and passing the popcorn?
