“Basically, I’m racing to revamp the California dream.” he said. “I’ll work with anybody to get that going.”
In an ongoing meeting as he reflected on participate in the challenge, Ose portrayed his approach as that of a straight-talker who won’t sugarcoat the state’s deficits or tailor his situations to fit the impulses of ground-breaking intrigues like associations, which he sees as captors of the overwhelming Democratic Party and protectors of an inadmissible the present state of affairs.
Wherever he looks he sees uncontrolled vagrancy and annoying wrongdoing. Schools are failing to meet expectations and streets and framework have been permitted to fall into decay, also the high assessments and absence of government oversight.
“It’s captivating that those in office don’t see the greater part of the issues. You can’t resist the urge to see them. That is to say, go ahead. Simply drive through any urban region,” Ose said. “Except if you are one of these bazillionaires, California is broken.”

Ose’s Republican rivals, Assemblyman Travis Allen of Huntington Beach and representative John Cox, trail everything except one of the Democrats in raising support. Cox’s pull incorporates $3 million of his own cash.
