    •  Yes Hilda Solis is the way to go. (8+ / 0-)

      Jerry Brown will build up a surplus on the backs of the middle class and poor and then the R cons will come in and spend it.
        By investing in education social supports small and smaller business the D pro base will grow. If Jerry Brown does not know. He has got to go. Recall anyone.

      •  If they don't deliver, it's going to get harder (10+ / 0-)

        and harder to turn out the voters.

        We saw what happened in 2010 after the Party threw away a super majority at the national level by failing to deliver.

        We have to lower college tuition and raise minimum wage.  We have to increase school funding.
        We have to un-cut MediCal and bring back dental services.

        There's no chance of the state will go Republican, but we won't have the votes in a  de-gerrymandered situation to hold a super-majority unless Democratic voters have a reason to be revved up.

        Somehow we've got to get Solis (or someone like her) to challenge Jerry, or we have to make so much noise that he decides to retire rather than even risking a primary.

      •  Recall would be pretty tough (0+ / 0-)

        Jerry Brown has an approval rating of 48/35. Recalling him would be a pretty tough sell.
