Del Beccaro: Gavin Newsom wants Joe Biden’s job. Here are 6 reasons why that’s a horrible idea
Make no mistake — Gavin Newsom is running for president. He has led a gilded life and becomes more liberal with each passing day. Along the way, his policies have dangerously failed, and those failures should not be visited upon the rest of the nation.
Newsom has been a supervisor, a mayor, a lieutenant governor and now governor of California. In 2018, the Sacramento Bee ran this article: “The privileged candidate: Why do we let Gavin Newsom get away with this?” noting his class, wealth and connection privileges, including the billionaire Getty family, Nancy Pelosi and Jerry Brown. Those connections paved the way for his political success — not Newsom’s ability.
