Retired MLB Legend Steve Garvey LEADS Adam Schiff in California Senate Race

Former Los Angeles Dodgers and San Diego Padres baseball star Steve Garvey is running against Adam Schiff in California’s Senate race.

According to a new poll, the Conservative Republican 10-time All-Star just pulled into the top spot for the California Senate nonpartisan primary!

Garvey is currently leading pencil-neck Adam Schiff by 2 points.

Looks like the tide may be turning in California…

See for yourself:

James Woods called for Californians to vote Steve Garvey instead of crooked Adam Schiff:

Schiff’s campaign just released the most out-of-touch ad “attacking” opponent Steve Garvey for voting for President Trump twice…and it looks like they are beginning to go into meltdown mode…

Just watch:

The New York Post has more to say on Garvey’s lead over Schiff:

Former Los Angeles Dodgers and San Diego Padres star Steve Garvey is ahead of Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) in California’s nonpartisan Senate primary, a new poll shows.

Garvey, a Republican and 10-time MLB All-Star, snagged 27% support in the Los Angeles Times/Berkeley IGS poll released Friday.

Support for Schiff in the hotly-contested race for the seat formerly held by the late Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) was measured at 25% by the pollster.

The Los Angeles Times noted that Steve Garvey is leading the California Senate race — despite doing little campaigning, with zero TV ads and few public events:

Former Dodgers All-Star Steve Garvey’s quixotic campaign for the U.S. Senate seat once held by the late Dianne Feinstein appears likely to pay off in Tuesday’s California primary. Despite his barely-there strategy — Garvey held few public events and did not pay for a single television ad — polls show the Republican is on the cusp of winning one of the top two spots in the nonpartisan primary and advancing to the general election.

Political experts say Garvey was buoyed by two forces: fame from his nearly two decades playing for the Dodgers and the San Diego Padres, including the Dodgers’ 1981 World Series victory, and a multimillion-dollar ad blitz by his opponent, Democratic front-runner Rep. Adam B. Schiff and his allies, that boosted Garvey’s standing among GOP voters.

Schiff (D-Burbank) benefits if Garvey advances to the November election because of California’s overwhelming Democratic tilt. Garvey faces little chance of winning in a state that hasn’t elected a Republican statewide since 2006. Still, his name on the November ballot could help the GOP if it boosts Republicans in tight congressional races that will be decisive in determining control of the U.S. House of Representatives.

“He has become a vessel of opportunity for Schiff to avoid a tough November race” against a fellow Democrat, said veteran GOP strategist Rob Stutzman, a former advisor to former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger. “Now having said that, it’s also great for Republicans — they are much better off with a Senate candidate in the fall for down-ballot races.”

News that Garvey had been meeting with GOP donors and leaders around the state as he pondered a potential Senate bid leaked out last spring. He took months to officially announce that he was running for the seat, prompting head-scratching among political insiders because of the amount of money that needs to be raised to run a statewide campaign in California, home to some of the most expensive media markets in the nation.

Once Garvey entered the race, he did not mount a traditional campaign. He hasn’t held any big rallies or public meet-and-greets with voters around the state. He spent no money on television ads, never rented a campaign bus and declined to do endorsement interviews with California’s major newspapers, including The Times, the San Francisco Chronicle and the Sacramento Bee.

What do you think?

Are Californians growing sick and tired of the crooked left?

Will Steve Garvey be elected Senator?
