Alex Padilla Is Gavin Newsom’s Pick For California Senator, Over Rep Barbara Lee Of Oakland

This is a painful outcome for those who were wanting Governor Newsom to pick the legendary Barbara Lee. I was one of those people. But in this, Gavin used a rather relentless form of political math.

First, the California population is 39 percent Latino, versus 6.5 percent black. So, if Barbara Lee was to run for Senator to retain her seat, she would more than likely go up against a Latino from Southern California, and be defeated, and that person might be republican.

Second, Alex Padilla becomes the first gay and Latino U.S. Senator, thus checking the box marked “history.”

Third, at 62, Alex Padilla is younger than Barbara Lee, who’s 74.

Like I said, the political math Governor Newsom used was relentless, to be sure. He wanted to make sure Democrats held on to Southern California and the Latino base, there.

Rep Barbara Lee Congratulates Alex Padilla

“I congratulate Secretary of State Alex Padilla on his historic appointment to fill Vice-President-elect Kamala Harris’s seat in the United States Senate. Secretary Padilla has a track record as a skilled legislator and a steadfast advocate for justice, and I believe he will be a powerful voice in the Senate for those who continue to be denied our country’s promise of equality.

“I look forward to working with him on behalf of all Californians to address the economic and public health crises we are facing, and to create a brighter future for our state and for communities across the country.”

Stay tuned.

Note from Zennie62Media’s Zennie62 YouTube and Oakland News Now Today Blog SF Bay Area: this video-blog post demonstrates the full and live operation of the latest updated version of an experimental Zennie62Media , Inc. mobile media video-blogging system network that was launched June 2018. This is a major part of Zennie62Media , Inc.’s new and innovative approach to the production of news media. What we call “The Third Wave of Media”. The uploaded video is from a vlogger with the Zennie62 on YouTube Partner Channel, then uploaded to and formatted automatically at the Oakland News Now site and Zennie62-created and owned social media pages. The overall objective is smartphone-enabled, real-time, on the scene reporting of news, interviews, observations, and happenings anywhere in the World and within seconds and not hours. Now, news is reported with a smartphone: no heavy and expensive cameras or even a laptop are necessary. The secondary objective is faster, and very inexpensive media content news production and distribution. We have found there is a disconnect between post length and time to product and revenue generated. With this, the problem is far less, though by no means solved. Zennie62Media is constantly working to improve the system network coding and seeks interested content and media technology partners.
