SFGate’s Eric Ting pontificates:
But if Biden doesn’t run, Newsom may become Chris Christie and “miss his moment” if he chooses to defer to Harris (Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis must grapple with similar questions as he considers possibly challenging Trump in 2024). Politics moves extremely fast, and Newsom himself told The Atlantic he was surprised his recent comments about the national Democratic Party struck such a nerve.
Our take has always been that Newsom is likely to run. If he wins, it will be a disaster. He is an empty suit.
If tRump or some other Republican wins, it will be even worse!
