Donald Trump cast doubt on whether he would accept the results of the November 8 election if he loses — risking 220 years of the peaceful transfer of power. And California Republicans running for Congress are still legitimizing him despite his threats about women, immigrants, and the will of voters.
The Los Angeles Times just said Republicans like Steve Knight, Jeff Denham, and Darrell Issa "will have no one to blame but themselves" if they lose in November.
Democrats are mounting strong challenges to hard-right Republican incumbents, turning once solidly Republican districts into tossup races.
"The sexist, xenophobic rhetoric coming from the disastrous Donald Trump presidential campaign certainly won’t help California Republicans win on Nov. 8," the Times wrote.
"While Democrats have sounded the alarm about Trump's threat to our country since he launched his candidacy, California Republicans in Congress fueled Trump's rise," said Michael Soller, California Democratic Party communications director. "When Trump questions the legitimacy of the election, voters mush reject the Republicans who legitimized him with their support."
