Cox Moves Past Debate and on to November

Newsom and Foe Fail to Schedule Any Other Debates

By Sean Brown, October 9, 2018 3:15 pm

Following yesterday’s first and only California gubernatorial debate between John Cox and Gavin Newsom, Cox has moved swiftly to get more air time in order to express his disappointment in the lack of controversial questions asked and a nonexistent fairness.

Appearing on Fox News with host Shannon Bream, Cox talked about the conversation the two rivals had referring to it as the “non-conversation conversation.” He explaining the topics covered were two general and most of which had nothing to do with what he is campaigning on. “We didn’t talk about water which is a huge issue in California. Mr. Newsom is in favor of rationing… our farmers are being starved of water. We didn’t even talk about education… we’ve gone from being one of the top states in the nation in education to 47th in the country.”

Bream challenged Cox’s argument by mentioning a San Francisco Chronicle article that headlined; “Gavin Newsom clear winner in debate with John Cox.” The piece also said “time and again Cox found himself on the defensive when Newsom challenged the GOP candidate about past statements. Cox exhibited a particular bit of frustration when Newsom brought up the Republican positions on concealed weapons and other gun control issues.” Cox stabbed back arguing it’s all about what the voters care about. He outlined anything but a ‘Golden State’ narrative with a gloomy portrayal of the people in the state that can’t afford gas, food, rent and tax rates forcing them to leave the state.

Despite being invited onto the show, Newsom was not present to defend himself while Cox went on to bombard him with failed policy examples such as BART, the hypodermic needles epidemic and a property crime rate that exceeds any other state. Cox said it’s a “sad story” referring to these examples that he blames Newsom for during his time as San Francisco Mayor and Lt. Governor.
