Steve Hilton: Regardless of Newsom’s victory, the anti-Sacramento establishment movement will grow in the coming months

California resident and “Next Revolution” host Steve Hilton predicted that although the Associated Press predicts Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom will retain the governorship, making an effort to overthrow him by Los Angeles Republican Larry Elder, the bipartisan movement championed by Elder will continue to resonate and develop in the months and years to come.

Fox News presenter Trace Gallagher, also a resident of California, noted the exorbitant cost of living in the Golden State and all the systemic issues like homelessness, mismanagement of forests and high crime rates – and how they have had little effect so far in the grip of the Democrats. levers of power in Sacramento.

“It will take a monumental movement to get them out of power,” said Gallagher.

“Trace, that’s what’s so exciting about the recall campaign,” Hilton responded. “I think it galvanized the movement and I’ve been here since 2012, almost ten years. I’ve never seen such energy behind the political movement as we’ve seen in recent months behind this recall.”

“It’s a beautiful state. We love it,” said Hilton while denouncing the “appalling and disastrous mismanagement by governors of every aspect of running a state, be it housing, homeless, schools “. Hilton continued, “Not a single thing they did right. Yet people kind of put up with it because it’s so beautiful to be here.”

Hilton said the systemic problems had become so serious that apolitical Californians had started to take notice, as evidenced by the number, albeit apparently insufficient, of non-Republican voters supporting the ouster of the last Democratic governor.

“It’s so bad now, you drive everywhere, not just Central LA and San Francisco. You can see the disaster of the homeless crisis which is really an untreated mental health crisis… People are leaving because they can’t afford to live, they can’t pay taxes. Businesses are leaving, “he said.

“The reality of incompetence and cruelty, and bad governance – it’s catching up with them.”


He said these truths “galvanized” the movement currently led by people like Elder.

“[I]this movement will continue … There are a lot of rebels in the state. Not just Republicans: Democrats, independent voters are fed up. We may not go all the way tonight with the recall, but the change is going to happen in the governor’s office, in the state legislature, in the district attorney’s offices in big cities like LA. and San Francisco [where] you have these people on the side of the criminals, not the victims and ordinary law-abiding people. “

“Wherever you look, people want change and it will happen someday. Maybe not tonight but it will happen.”
