Arizona Gov. attacks California in strange call to "fleeing" residents

All is not well in Arizona’s Republican politics.

After the state voted for President Joe Biden on Donald Trump, and Senator Martha Maxali handed her seat to Democrat Mark Kelly in the 2020 election, the infighting began. Phoenix New Times Description of “dysfunction” and “bloodletting” Inside the shattered party last month.

One way to turn the case red again, is through appearance A strange editorial Posted by Governor Doug Dossi in the Orange County Register on Tuesday, it aims to target Republicans fleeing Golden State and bring them into the desert. The decision to publish the opinion in the Republican stronghold of California did not appear to be a coincidence.

To start, the governor’s entire case is based on a falsehood – that there is an unprecedented mass exodus of people from California at the moment.

“California … lost nearly 70,000 people. Why would people choose to pick up and leave one of America’s most beautiful states?” Asked.

Doce’s claim of “nearly 70,000” is bewildering: In fact, 653,551 residents left California in 2019 (a number lower than the previous three years). That number, which is typical for the most populous state in the country, is ten times higher than Ducey’s number and would have actually helped his argument.

He may have simply been wrong, or he may be indicating To report 70,000 California residents moved to Arizona in 2019. However, this number showed that Arizona was the largest. drop In arriving in California compared to previous years. The Orange County Registry should know: They wrote the story.

While there has been an increase in the number of people moving during the pandemic, and a record number of San Franciscans leaving the city, these people are largely not leaving the state; The majority move To other parts of California.

Simply, as A nonpartisan think tank found in a study last week, “It is clear that mass immigration from California did not happen in 2020.”

The math aside, the carrot that Dossi waved to lure those important Republican voices into Arizona is corrupt as well.

“I have made it my mission to make our country the best place in the country to obtain and maintain an education,” Douce brags.

The mission, like Arizona, appears to be a failure It sits in the 46th position In the statewide education rankings, as Twitter users were happy to remind the governor.

Doce continues to attack political correctness in California, and San Francisco in particular.

“Perhaps nowhere is more evident than the fact that instead of working to get children back into the classroom, one of the largest school districts in California focuses on erasing historical figures such as George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and Abraham Lincoln,” wrote (Skip the fact that Doce himself was open to Renamed Jefferson Davis Highway in his state).

And while the final step San Francisco Unified School District took to rename its schools was already a mess, Doce himself knows a thing or two about a misguided effort at renaming things. The governor recently spent a lot of time and money inexplicably changing the Arizona Department of Correction to the Department of Correction, Rehabilitation, and Re-entry, rather than addressing the real reason behind the establishment of Arizona The fourth highest incarceration rate in the country.

This was a step Described Written by Democratic Senator Tony Navarrett as “putting lipstick on a pig”.

Docey’s displeasure over the political correction seemed particularly paradoxical in a week when his fellow Arizona Republican, Paul Gossard, was Twitter despicable misogyny memes On International Women’s Day no less.

Whether right-leaning Orange County residents take Dossi to view by turning away from the coast and helping turn Arizona red again remains to be seen. But they may need a more convincing argument than this incoherent introductory article attempts.
