(Liberty Bell) – California Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom stated on Wednesday that the left is getting “destroyed” when it comes to messaging ahead of the midterm elections that are set for next week. Newsom said that messaging was his “fundamental grievance with my damn party.”
Wow. Someone is definitely frustrated, wouldn’t you agree? Yes, one of many weak spots for the Democratic Party is messaging. Not that they aren’t communicating their own ideals effectively. They certainly seem to be doing a fairly good job of infecting every nook and cranny of our culture with their belief system. The problem is the message they are pushing is one that Americans don’t want to hear because it doesn’t have any real solutions to the issues they face every day.
According to the Daily Mail, Newsom commented during an interview with CBS News, “We’re getting crushed on the narrative. We’re going to have to do better in terms of getting on the offense and stop being on the damn defense.”
Washington Correspondent Major Garrett asked Newsom, “Does it feel like a red wave?”
Newsom responded, “Yeah, of course it does.”
‘I’m not paid to say that. I’m paid to say, you know, ‘fate and feel.’ I mean, I get it. Look, I mean, I could be the cheerleader. I’m also pragmatic, you feel it,’ he continued.

The Daily Mail then noted that there’s a rumor going around that Newsom might be a potential 2024 Democratic Party presidential candidate if Biden decides not to run for a second term. Evidence that might support such a theory includes a dust up with Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis, along with his running ads in different states.
The California Democrat has not invested a whole lot of effort into his reelection campaign in the blue state. Right now he’s running against a Republican opponent who is severely underfunded and is up 20 points in the polls, despite the fact he was almost recalled last year.
The governor has remarked that he is not planning to run for president.
‘How can you be so sure?’ Garrett asked during the interview. ‘Because it’s not my ambition, because it’s not the direction I’m leaning into, it’s not the moment,’ Newsom replied.

Garrett continued to press, “One way to answer that question is to say ‘I will never run for president of the United States.” Can you say that?”
Newsom, shockingly declared, “Yeah, I have no interest.”
Sorry, but I’m not buying that. It certainly seems like he’s positioning himself to be a reluctant candidate, which is a strategy likely used to endear him to the left.
“In September Newsom hit the airwaves in his home state to campaign against Proposition 30, a ballot measure that would tax income above $2 million to fund electric vehicle incentives. He also recently aired ads promoting Proposition 1 – a measure that would amend the state’s constitution to include the right to an abortion,” the Daily Mail reported.
Newsom then asserted he was proud of Democrats and the record they hold in Congress. It’s only the messaging he has issues with.
‘It’s been a masterclass the last two years, not necessarily in effective communication, but in terms of the substance under the circumstance with all the headwinds and obfuscation in our position. I think it’s been remarkable,’ he said.
