Terrified by results


Regarding “Remain a vigilant voter” (Letters, Sept. 17): The author is shocked that “some 36 percent of California­ns voted to oust Gov. Gavin Newsom in favor of Larry Elder.” However, the 36 percent did not all vote in favor of Elder. Over half voted for other candidates. This means that only 1 in 4 California­ns voted for Elder, a Trumpappro­ved candidate who wanted to abolish not just coronaviru­s restrictio­ns but the minimum wage, too. This is not just shocking. It’s terrifying. We must indeed remain vigilant voters, or a small minority could take away all Americans’ hard-fought protection­s.
