California Democrats call for In-N-Out-Burger-boycott
Fox & Trends with Carley Shimkus.
California state Democrats distance themselves from the state party chief, after he called the boycott a beloved burger chain after cash donated to the state of the Republican party.
The political feud began last week, when Eric Bauman, head of the California Democratic party, called for a boycott of California-based In-N-Out on his $ 25,000 to the GOP.
Et tu In-N-Out? Tens of thousands of dollars donated to the California Republican y… it’s time #BoycottInNOut – Trump and his cronies support this scary… maybe animal style!https://t.co/9zkdFaG5CJ

Bauman’s call soon became a Problem for the party, as it captured national headlines and gave ammunition to the GOP than the Democratic leader has threatened to sell you, the loyal customers of the popular restaurant chain
However, the government backtracked democratic party quickly, says Bauman’s call for a boycott was only his “personal opinion” and not by the state Democratic party as a political one.
“We are not happy that In-N-Out gave the money, but we are not calling for an official boycott,” John Vigna, the party’s communications director, told the Los Angeles Times. “Democrats are very fired up. Chair [Bauman] is definitely a voice, a feeling that many people have now.”

Ordinary voters, including the rails against a boycott.
“Eat at In-N-Out is a standard to do thing in California,” Anthony Grigore said, the times, discard the idea of a boycott is rather silly.
“The stomach, lifts the spirit,” Jaime Regalado, professor Emeritus of political science at Cal State L. A., said the newspaper. “Cheap, good-tasting burger is hard to dismiss politically.”
But despite the damage the Republicans firmly in control of taken to have the opportunity to be on the political, posting images, and declarations of support for the chain.
“Enjoy our favorite fast-food restaurant, In-N-Out Burger, in the Capitol today. No boycott here!” Republican state Sen., Jim Nielsen wrote on Facebook, attaching a photo of himself surrounded by several orders of burgers and fries.
Republican gubernative candidate John Cox posted on Twitter a photo of himself in front of a In-N-Out, the saying “There is nothing more Californian as In-N-Out Burger.”

Matt Fleming, a spokesman for the California Republican y, also weighed in on the issue.
“It is disappointing that he wrote the attack on a company, to be a California institution, and widely regarded as a good employer,” in a tweet.
Meanwhile, In-N-Out released a statement addressing the donations to the Republican party, which claims that the chain has made “equal contributions for both Democratic and Republican” PACs in California this year.
“For years, In-N-Out Burger, the legislators, regardless of political affiliation, a policy to promote the strengths of California and allow us to continue operating, with the values of providing strong pay and great benefits for our employees,” Executive Vice President Arnie Wensinger said.
