State Democrats believe some Capitol rioters are also focused on California – Fresno, California

Fresno, California 2021-01-13 01:37:29 –

Fresno, California (KFSN)-Democrats in the state, including Fresno City Council member Nelson Espalza, believed that some of the mobs that attacked the US Capitol last week were also focused on California.

“Some of the same people who participated in this attack on non-American democracy are the same people behind the effort to bring back Governor Newsom here in California,” Esparza said.

The state Democrats believed that the California Patriots Union, the group funding the recall, was directly associated with the militants involved in the violent riots in Washington, DC.

“This recall, which should be called the’California Coup’, is led by right-wing conspiracy theorists, white supremacists, and anti-boxers,” said Rusty Hicks, chairman of the Democratic Party of California.

The Fresno County Republican Chairman argued that this was not the case. “There are absolutely no radicals like the Democrats say, they’re just trying to keep up with what’s happening in Washington, DC,” Fred Vanderhoof said.

The Governor’s recall petition was signed throughout the valley, including the local gun shop.

Banderhoof added that it was signed by people who were dissatisfied with the handling of the pandemic.

“Most of these signatures are due to these blockades, and businesses are out of business. Many Democrats also own them,” he said.

But the Democrats said the recall efforts and the shift in time for the governor are not currently needed in California.

“Most of these signatures are due to these blockades, and businesses are out of business. Many Democrats also own them,” Banderhof said.

Randy Economy, a spokesman for the California Patriots, told Action News: “They sadly don’t touch the reality of what this recall is. Label us. It will make us look negative.”

But the Democrats said the recall efforts and the shift in time for the governor are not currently needed in California.
