"This is the greatest self-own in 20 years of California politics that I’ve ever seen"

“If you tell people it’s gonna be rigged, said Hayes, it’s “not the greatest motivator for them to go out and vote.”

“No,” said Nehring. “No, absolutely not. This is the greatest self-own in 20 years of California politics that I’ve ever seen, in that Larry Elder’s website said that the election had been stolen, and that Gavin Newsom had won. And it said that on Monday, the day before the election. And that’s just an extraordinary statement to make. It is the opposite of ‘get out the vote.’ It is suppressing your own voters from turning out and voting because you’re telling them the election has already been lost. It’s monumental political malpractice to do that.”

Nehring added that he didn’t think Elder was running for governor, but rather “running to be an influencer.”
