In August of 2009, I wrote in an article for F&H Daily titled “Reach out, Republicans, or lose!.” In that article, I wrote that unless the California Republican Party is able to persuade significant numbers of Latinos, Asians and other people of color to register in their party and/or vote for their candidate, they will not elect a governor or any statewide official in 2010 and could very well lose additional seats in congress and the state legislature.
In March of 2011, in my article for F&H Daily titled “Why the Sky is Falling on the California Republican Party,” I noted that I was not playing Chicken Little, and that is exactly what happened.
I then went on to say that if Republican leaders and elected officials — the few that are left — don’t quickly wake up, 2012 could very well see the sky fall again on the California Republican Party.
Now, following the GOP debacle of 2012, my warnings of 2009 and 2011 are being echoed by many today.
This time, I hope they are listening.
