On June 5, 2018 the citizens of California have a chance to shock the world.
They can give Travis Allen the votes he needs to face off against presumed front-runner, democrat, Gavin Newsom, in November.
Travis Allen has shown he understands the issues which are important to the health freedom community. I can not underestimate the importance of this stance. If we don’t get the health issues right, nothing else matters. We need to be healthy in order to have a robust and informed political debate.
I am convinced that hope exists for this potential outcome. Let me tell you why.
About a week ago, signs started appearing around my small town for the upcoming primary election. I was pleased to see the signs for Travis Allen were plentiful. I did not see ANY signs for John Cox, the other Republican in the race who has received the endorsement of President Donald Trump.
Yes, I will say it: President Trump endorsed the WRONG candidate for governor in California.
In watching the commercials on television I was disheartened to see that it looked like Cox and the other candidates were beating Allen on the airwaves. However, discussions with some friends informed me that Travis Allen’s campaign had an enormously active social media presence and that was something I should consider in comparison to more traditional forms of political advertising.
This last weekend I was at a family picnic and got into a political discussion with my free-spirited, Santa Cruz sister-in-law. I adore this sister-in-law because she is feisty, and when I met her she was a very strong liberal. And she genuinely makes an attempt to understand both sides.
In 2016 she went to rallies for both Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump, because she wanted to compare the two men. And yes, she was just to the side of the woman at the Trump rally in Burlingame who got pelted with eggs thrown by protesters.
My sister-in-law was an enormous Travis Allen fan, having watched the debate between the candidate, and also having followed the race more closely than I have done. She also reinforced the message others have told me that his supporters are REALLY passionate about him.
As I was driving out of Santa Cruz I saw a number of people with signs on one of the overpasses. They were Travis Allen supporters. Their largest sign read, “HONK – IF YOU SUPPORT TRAVIS ALLEN.”
I suggest all of my fellow, dispirited Californians, who have long believed this to be a one party democratic state to go to the polls on June 5, 2018 and cast your vote for Travis Allen.
