Seems that there is some hope that Kalifornia will split. I doubt that it will happen soon, but there is a HUGE drive for it and it may well get on the ballot. I can’t see the LA folks letting this happen, as they will lose so much income….I can see “Norther” California wantin’ it to, but, again, LA will fight ’em….they need the money. Eastern portion is a wash, really….
In addition, LA needs the water the other portions would then control.
Plus I’m not so sure that I want any of the Californians to get more votes in the Senate. Even a conservative Californian is pretty liberal on my terms.
