The bias of this news site is sad. The author should be ashamed. Take a look at the key trigger words that are thrown into the article that create a false negative view of Elder.
Newsom will get votes from the supporters of Biden who has come to our State to support Newsom.
I voted YES because we need to be represented by someone else who actually serves the people rather than their own self interests.
We have seen in the past that polls and predictions of winners have often been inaccurate. Do not let them discourage you from voting for new leadership.

I have to agree with "Parent and Voter's" comments. The bias in your reporting "unmasks" your personal political bent, which is shameful. You end up adding yourself to the "just another Liberal Rag" list of news publications, putting your foot on the scale in this election. Sure is a good thing for you to help stir up ole Gavin and his minions on election day.
