California flips parties in the governorship every eight to 12 years on average, far more than Oregon flips. By that measure, California is more Republican than Oregon.

The most recent Republican Governor to our south has a strong message everyone should listen to.

THIS is the leadership Republicans need to follow if they hope to retain a balance of power. We need that balance because with only two parties controlling everything, their battles swing to extremes that are not good for the country. We need both parties strong, but when a lunatic fringe drives either party to extremes, our country is lost.
