Bipartisanship: Such a nice concept, like unicorns

August 27, 2017

By The Editorial Board

Such a nice idea

“Bipartisanship” is such a sweet word, like “unicorn.” Assemblyman Chad Mayes of Yucca Valley learned all about it after voting for the cap-and-trade bill last month, and getting bounced as Assembly Republican leader last week. California Republican Party Chairman Jim Brulte, and Republican National Committee members Shawn Steel and Harmeet Dhillon sealed his fate by demanding he step down. If only the GOP could do something about its numbers. A mere 25.9 percent of California’s registered voters are Republicans, down by 300,000 registered voters since 2007. Democrats gained more than 2 million registrants during that time. Mayes promised to persist, saying in an interview that he will work to “remake the California Republican Party. I am a believer that if we don’t reshape it, we’re going to continue down the death spiral.” In an act of class, Mayes voted for his successor, Brian Dahle of Nubieber.
