California Democrats spend $110 million to defeat other Democrats in 2016 same-party races

Kamala HarrisDominating California politics is getting pricey for Democrats, who spent in excess of $110 million to defeat other Democrats in 2016, significantly more than what it cost them under the top-two primary system in 2014.

An analysis by Forward Observer found that Democrats “raised or spent $91.5 million on same-party races—a 69 percent increase from 2014 when Democrats spent $54.3 million.”

The Sacramento public-affairs firm’s figures included 2016 state Assembly and Senate races as well as U.S. House races, but not the U.S. Senate contest between Democrats Kamala Harris and Loretta Sanchez, whose campaigns spent a combined $20 million.

Meanwhile, California Republicans actually raised or spent less in 2016—$2.78 million—than they did in 2014, when they ran up a tab of $13.85 million on same-party races.

Then again, Democrats had to contend with 24 same-party contests in 2016, while Republicans saw just four. Republicans only ran against each other last year in Assembly contests.

    It does cost a lot of money when you have to: pay the voter, bus them in and out of voting booths, give them accommodations (bedding, foods, freebees), placards/waterproof crayons/markers, instructions in Spanish where to place the X (democrat vote) etc for all the votes from ILLEGAL INVADERS. Remember there are 2 to 5 million ILLEGAL INVADERS in california.

    Maybe there are democrats the democrats don’t agree with just like there are repubs that the repubs don’t agree with. There are more than two ways to look at problems.

    NO WONDER THE MEDIA LOVE THE DEMOCRATS, THEY ARE A CASH COW FOR THEM. BILLIONS IN ADVERTISING, FOLKS IT IS ALL ABOUT THE MONEY.

    THEY HAD BETTER WORRY ABOUT THIS.

    SHARE THIS WITH EVERYONE YOU CAN.

    OBAMA HAS GIVEN BILLIONS TO MUSLIMS THAT ARE TRYING TO KILL US. ENOUGH TO REBUILD OUR MILITARY AND INFRASTRUCTURE.

    PRAY THAT THIS DOES NOT HAPPEN, BUT GET READY, PRESIDENT TRUMP, BE VERY CAREFUL, WE HAVE WORKED TO HARD TO LOSE YOU NOW. FIRE EVERYONE ASSOCIATED WITH OBAMA.

    FROM A KOREAN WAR VET 51/53, A REG. DEM. ALL MY LIFE, BUT I VOTED FOR TRUMP & WILL NEVER VOTE DEM AGAIN AS LONG AS THIS LYING CROOKED MESS IS IN D.C.

    HAS OBAMA SET HIMSELF UP TO BE THE HEAD OF A MUSLIM TRY AT TAKING THIS COUNTRY? BETTER THINK! HE IS A MUSLIM SETTING UP HEADQUARTERS WITH HOLDER IN DC, 5 MUSLIM CAMPS JUST ACROSS THE LINE IN NORTH VA. MUSLIM AND FEMA CAMPS ALL OVER THE USA, MOST CLOSE TO MILITARY BASES. HE HAS TAKEN BILLIONS OF YOUR MONEY AND GIVEN TO MUSLIMS AND HAS DONE NOTHING BUT DAMAGE THE USA. BETTER WAKE UP.

    I BELIEVE WE HAVE BEEN SET UP FOR A TRY AT A MUSLIM INVASION OF THIS COUNTRY BY, HILLIARY, OBAMA, KERRY, SORROS AND THE BIASED MEDIA. READ ALL THE WHYS BELOW.

    WHY ISN’T A LAW BEING ENFORCED BARRING ALL MUSLIMS FROM THIS COUNTRY. THIS LAW WAS PASSED IN 1952. PUBLIC LAW 414, PAGE 2, SECTION 212. ALSO #8 US CODE 482, BARRING ALL INADISSIBLE ALIENS FROM THE USA GOVERNMENT WAS PASSED IN 1952.

    WHY DO YOU THINK ANYTHING OBAMA HAS DONE IS LEGAL, HE HAS CONFESSED TO BEING A MUSLIM ON NATION WIDE TV. EVERYTHING HE HAS SIGNED, OR ORDERED IN 8 YEARS IS ILLEGAL.

    WHY DID HILLIARY HAVE A MUSLIM FROM A RADICAL FAMILY AS HER TOP AIDE FOR 10 YEARS, HUMA COULD BE A PERFECT PIPELINE TO PASS SECRETS TO THE MUSLIM WORLD.

    WHY HAS OBAMA SURROUNDED HIMSELF WITH MUSLIMS ANOTHER PERFECT PIPELINE TO PASS SECRETS. HE HAS DECLARED HIMSELF A MUSLIM ON NATIONWIDE TV.

    WHY DOES THE BIASED NEWS MEDIA SAY HE IS NOT A MUSLIM, WHEN I HAVE A LIST OF WHERE 34 TIMES HE HAS EITHER HELPED THEM OR SAID HE WAS ONE.

    WHY GET MAD AT PUTIN, HE SAID THAT THERE WAS NO PLACE IN RUSSIA FOR ANYONE THAT WOULD NOT FOLLOW THEIR LAW AND SPEAK THEIR LANGUAGE, THEY WOULD HAVE TO GO TO A COUNTRY THAT DID.

    WHY HAS HILLIARY, OBAMA, KERRY AND THE BIASED NEWS MEDIA DONE EVERYTHING THEY CAN TO HELP THE RADICAL MUSLIMS.

    WHY DID THE OBAMA ADMINSTRATION TRY AND BUY UP ALL AMMO?

    WHY TRADE 5 TERRIOST FROM CUBA FOR ONE TRAITOR?

    WHY TRY AND TAKE OUR GUNS? HITLER DID, & HISTORY TELLS US WHAT HAPPENED THERE.

    WHY ALLOW A MINIMUM OF 37 MUSLIM CAMPS HERE IN THE STATES? MOST CLOSE TO MILITARY BASES. I PERSONALLY VERIFIED THE ONES IN SHAWNEE NATIONAL PARK, IN IL. AND THE ONE AT DOVER, TN. AND THE FEMA CAMP IN EAST KY.

    WHY ARE THERE 5 MUSLIM CAMPS IN N. VIRGINIA, CLOSE TO DC? ARE THEY TO TAKE WASHINGTON?

    WHY BUILD A FEMA CAMP IN EVERY STATE, SOME MORE THAN ONE, AT TAX PAYERS EXPENSE, WITH ARMED GUARDS? ARE THEY TO HOLD AND TRAIN MUSLIMS?

    WHY ARE THEY BRINGING THOUSANDS OF YOUNG MUSLIMS HERE?

    WHY IS THE TAX PAYER HAVING TO FEED, CLOTH & HOUSE THE HUNDREDS OF THOUSAND OF MUSLIMS BEING BROUGHT HERE?

    WHY GIVE THE THOUSANDS OF MUSLIMS BROUGHT IN FREE HEALTH CARE, SPENDING THOUSANDS FOR HOSPITAL CARE?

    WHY ARE THE ILLEGALS BEING TREATED BETTER THAN OUR VETERANS.

    WHY STOP THE TANK AND PLANE SHIPPMENT TO EGYPT, WHEN THEIR ARMY KICKED THE RADICALS OUT?

    WHY DID OUR GOVERNMENT SEND BILLIONS OF DOLLARS TO HELP THE RADICALS IN IRAN, A COUNTRY OUT TO DESTROY US?

    WHY ARE WE SENDING BILLIONS TO ARAB COUNTRIES, AND LETING OUR COUNTRY GO TO POT?

    WHY DONT THEY ENFORCE THE LAW BARRING ALL MUSLIMS FROM THIS COUNTRY? PRAY THAT TRUMP WILL DO THIS.

    WHY IS THE MUSLIM MAJOR IN TEXAS LIVING THAT KILLED 14 SOLDIERS AND WOUNDED A LOT MORE?

    WHY ARE THEY RELEASING ALL MUSLIMS IN CUBA TO GO BACK INTO ACTION TO KILL OUR SOLDIERS?

    WHY DONT WE HANG ALL MUSLIMS CAUGHT AND BURY THEM WITH PIG PARTS, LIKE GENERAL PERSHING DID IN THE PHILLIPENS? HE STOPPED A MUSLIM UPRISING BY DOING JUST THAT.

    WHY WAS OBAMA ALLOWED TO SWEAR IN CARLOYN WALKER AS JUDGE IN BROOKLIN USING THE QURAN?

    WHY ALLOW ILLEGALS TO FLOOD OUR COUNTRY WHEN THEY COST MORE PER YEAR THAN THE IRAQ WAR.

    WHY SEND BILLIONS TO MUSLIM COUNTRIES TRYING TO KILL US.

    WHY DONT THE BIASED MEDIA REPORT ALL THIS.

    YOU SAY THAT A MUSLIM TRY AT A TAKEOVER IS IMPOSSIBLE, I CAN TAKE 100 WELL ARMED PEOPLE AND TAKE ANY BASE IN 1 HOUR, OUR TROOPS ARE NOT ARMED.

    BETTER COAT ALL YOU AMMO WITH PIGS BLOOD OR GREASE, LET THE WORLD KNOW YOU ARE DOING SO.

    TRUMP IS NOW THE PRESIDENT, SO, GET ON BOARD AND HELP HIM STRAIGHTEN THIS MESS OUT. PRAY FOR HIS PROTECTION EACH DAY.

    I HAVE A LOT MORE FACTS IF ANYONE WANTS THEM. SHARE THIS.
