In a bid for the U.S. Senate, Representative Adam Schiff (D-CA), known for his denial of the 2016 election results, is once again centering his campaign around former President Donald Trump.

Schiff recently responded to a post by Steve Garvey, former first baseman for the Dodgers, on social media platform X. In his post, Garvey accused Schiff of deceiving the American public and further polarizing an already divided nation. Schiff retorted by accusing Trump of election fraud, a claim he has made repeatedly.

"Steve – I impeached Donald Trump for abusing his power to cheat in our elections. I warned he would do so again, if given the chance. And he did. Meanwhile, you voted for him twice and spew his false talking points. That may please the MAGA crowd, but it’s a bad fit for CA," Schiff posted on his Twitter handle.

However, Schiff's assertion that Trump "cheated again" is ambiguous. It is unclear whether he is insinuating that Trump manipulated the 2020 election results. Unfortunately, it seems unlikely that Schiff will be asked to clarify his statement by any of the Democrat-leaning networks.

Schiff has consistently targeted Garvey in his campaign advertisements and mailers, criticizing him for voting for Trump twice and branding him as "too conservative for California." This suggests that Schiff views the exercise of democratic rights as a negative attribute. Moreover, Schiff's misuse of the term "conservative" indicates a misunderstanding of its meaning.

Schiff's campaign strategy appears to be focused on making the race about Trump, thereby avoiding discussion of the rising homelessness in his district since he assumed office.

Despite Schiff's claims in his advertisements that he has contributed to the construction of affordable housing, homelessness in his district has increased during his tenure. This fact was highlighted by the moderator during a recent debate.

In response to the tenfold increase in homelessness in his district since he took office, Schiff stated, "Certainly, it's going to take more than one member of Congress' effort to address homelessness, but let me just put this in perspective if I can... Mr. Garvey you can say the minimum wage is fine where it is, but you want to know why people are living on the street? It's because we're paying them poverty wages. Try to find a house anywhere in California when you're earning minimum wage."

Interestingly, Schiff's use of "we're" in his statement raises questions about who he is referring to, given that both the legislature and the governorship in California are controlled by Democrats. It is unclear whether this was a slip of the tongue or an indirect criticism of his Democratic colleagues who pass legislation that increases taxpayer burden.

Schiff's preoccupation with Steve Garvey, a revered figure in the Dodgers' history, is as concerning as his fixation on Trump. It is worth noting that Schiff's ultimate goal is to face a Republican in the general election. This is because Democrats outnumber Republicans two to one in the state, and the number of registered Republicans and Independents combined equals the number of registered Democrats.

However, there is a glimmer of hope for the California GOP as they have gained 46,000 voters statewide, while the Democrats have lost 30,000 voters.
