As Californians continue to grapple with the governance of Gavin Newsom, considered by many as one of the country's worst governors, there is growing concern about the potential of an even more problematic successor.

This concern stems from the upcoming 2026 gubernatorial race, where several prominent figures are expected to vie for the position.

In a surprising revelation, Vice President Kamala Harris has reportedly joked to friends about returning to California to run for governor if the Democrats lose the White House this fall. This detail was shared by two individuals familiar with her remarks, drawing parallels to Richard Nixon's political trajectory.

However, Harris's spokesperson, Kirsten Allen, refuted these claims, stating to POLITICO, "That did not happen. This November, the vice president will be preparing to be inaugurated for the second term of the Biden-Harris administration."

This news has sparked fear among Californians, who are already dealing with the state's current political leadership. Representative Kevin Kiley (R-CA) expressed his concern on Twitter, stating, "Politico reports Kamala Harris has told friends she will return to California to run for Governor if Biden loses. This might be the only possible way our state’s political leadership could get worse."

During a recent press briefing, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre was questioned about Harris's potential gubernatorial run by Fox News' Peter Doocy. Jean-Pierre responded with a list of Harris's accomplishments, stating, "The vice president has been a great partner to this president. He is appreciative of all the work she has done... She has been an amazing partner and the president appreciates her leadership."

If the report is accurate, it could indicate that the Biden administration is preparing for a potential loss in the upcoming election. This move could be seen as a strategic decision on Harris's part, as radio host John Phillips suggested on KABC-790 Los Angeles. He proposed that Harris might have anticipated this leak and possibly even approved it, as a tactic to deter potential competitors and to signal to major donors to hold off on backing other candidates.

The prospect of Harris's potential governorship has elicited dread among Californians, who have witnessed the state's decline under Newsom's leadership. Issues such as the homelessness crisis, rampant crime, a significant budget deficit, heavy taxation, and a focus on divisive social issues have plagued the state.

Critics argue that Harris's leadership would likely continue these trends, but with even less competence. As such, Californians are left to ponder the future of their state's leadership, with the looming possibility of a Harris governorship adding to their concerns.
