Well, yes, obviously

Residents of California, the self-fashioned “resistance” state that has sued the Trump administration more than 50 times, has donated more money to the Trump 2020 campaign than to most Democratic candidates in the 2020 race.

Donald Trump raised $3.2m in California since the beginning of this year, according to campaign finance data analyzed by CalMatters, a not-for-profit news organization focused on California issues.

Trump beat out everybody in the field except for Senator Kamala Harris, who raised $7.5m, and Mayor Pete Buttigieg, who raised $5.1m. Harris, who is California’s junior senator, has been leading in donations from the state since launching her campaign in January.

There’s only one Republican raising money among the 40 odd million people there. There are at least 20 Democrats.

  1. Marginally relevant trivia: California has more registered Republicans than any other state.

  2. Relevant trivia two: California was a solid red state ’til it decided to import millions of Central Americans. A lesson that Republican politicians haven’t yet taken on board.

    Two things:
    1) “A lesson that Republican politicians haven’t yet taken on board.” Well except for Trump perhaps. Although he is, to purloin and misuse a phrase, perhaps a “RINO”. 🙂
    2) What’s the sum total of donations to Democrats? That’s the comparison we need to make.

  4. Not to mention that any of the people with serious interests to protect know he’s getting a second term – everyone’s hedging their bets.
