John Cox California gubernatorial bid, and immigration talks
Republican businessman from San Diego and President of the Trump was confirmed via tweet.
Republican businessman John Cox shakes the gubernatorial contest in liberal California, when he enjoys a strong position in the polls, and the full-throated endorsement of President Trump before next week’s primary.
“California is a rare opportunity to turn things around and solve the high crime, high taxes, problems, along with so many others,” Trump tweeted on Memorial Day, 10 days after the first approval of Cox. “At the 5. June GOP Gubernative candidate JOHN COX, a really good and very competent man to vote. He’ll Make California Great Again!”

Democratic Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom is still the clear frontrunner in the race. But Cox was able to advance the election to the Bundestag, if he secures a second place on the next Tuesday — thanks to the state’s unique “jungle primary” system of progress, the first two finishers, regardless of party.
Even a place on the November ballot would mark a victory for Republicans in the increasingly liberal state, where the Democrat-controlled legislature Senate seats, about 90 percent of the time and kept the two of US-since 1992.
To replace the race, Gov. Jerry Brown in California to see an increase of Republican candidate John Cox is.
However, do not gain lieutenancy is unthinkable, when you consider that four of the last seven governors, the Republicans dating back to Ronald Reagan in 1967.
An Emerson College poll released Monday shows the front-running Democrat Newsom with the support of 24 percent of likely voters, followed by Cox to 16 percent, and Democrat Antonio Villaraigosa on 12. It is a further survey also followed Cox shows in the second place in the race to replace outgoing democratic Gov. Jerry Brown.
Villaraigosa, Los Angeles mayor, is now in danger of being cut off from the election, that if Cox believes that the support. He is considered more moderate than Newsom, a former San Francisco mayor, and remains very popular among likely Hispanic voters.
But in a political twist, Newsom Start ads against Cox-the effect of strengthening the Republican candidacy next week.
A Newsom video calls to Cox trump card “protege” spits out who is “the same hate-filled rhetoric.” While his ads attack the GOP candidate, Newsom could help him with the Republican voters by highlighting his relationship to the President, as he would probably prefer to be the face of the Republicans, and not Villaraigosa, in November.
Cox’s the next Republican competition of state Parliament, Travis Allen, who is fourth in the Emerson survey, 11 percent.
The Huntington Beach-area legislator has also tried to align themselves with the Trump agenda, and this weekend appeared to bristle at Cox as approved by the President.
“Cox is a Never-Trumper,” Allen tweeted Monday. “I think, @realDonaldTrump was misled by the institution, in Washington, DC. I fully expect to ring my phone, 6. June, and I expect Trump to say ‘We made a mistake, but now we are fully on Board, we GO BACK to CALIFORNIA’ “

The 62-year-old Cox, a successful Southern California business man running on a pro-Trump agenda, with a top priority of the termination of the state’s “sanctuary” status, and those cities and counties that protect illegal immigrants from deportation.
“Politicians like Gavin Newsom thrive on the politics of division, the support of so-called sanctuary cities, just to win votes,” Cox says in a campaign ad. “Let’s end sanctuary cities now”.
Cox is with trump management in March sued in California over sanctuary laws — in the argument, that the limitation of the local law enforcement, Federal immigration agents has led to more crime.
Cox’s other top priorities: the protection of Second Amendment rights, and cut taxpayer waste, including the state high-speed rail, which he and other critics call you a “frippery” and “the train to nowhere beat.” A recent analysis shows that the cost is now at $77 billion, an increase of 20 percent from about two years ago. He is also against a new gas-tax increase.
“The two top issues are the state of the sanctuary state law … because it protects criminals, illegal aliens, … and the new gas tax,” Cox said last week on Fox News’ “special report with Bret Baier.”
“It is squeezing the workers in the state,” Cox also told Fox News.
Trump and other Republicans, at least until November, would certainly be thrilled with Cox as runners-up behind Newsom, because they desperately need to bring a GOP candidate at the top of the state ballot this fall, the Republican voters. The situation is particularly race currently in California-Congress-where the Democrats are pouring hundreds of millions of dollars to cancel the bids of seven GOP-held seats in-house. Higher GOP turnout could help the Republicans keep at least some of them.
Cox, House majority Leader Kevin McCarthy and other California Republicans are trying to get a gas tax repeal initiative on the November ballot, in another attempt by the GOP voters to the polls.
