Karl Rove: The Blue Wave Will Get Pushed Back in California

Karl Rove: The Blue Wave Will Get Pushed Back in California

Thursday, 07 June 2018 08:54 AM EDT

The jungle primaries in California proved a positive barometer for Republicans in the upcoming midterms, with GOP voters in the state energized enough to hold back the prospects of a blue wave, Karl Rove wrote in a column for The Wall Street Journal.

Rove cites two key results from Tuesday:

First, with Republican John Cox earning a spot on the ballot in the governor's race, that will help energize GOP turnout in November. Second, Republicans outpaced Democratic voting in six of the seven districts - won by Hillary Clinton in 2016 - that Democrats are hoping to flip in November.

"California’s results show that Golden State Republicans are as enthused as Democrats to turn out, which could help the GOP hold most of their seven battleground seats," Rove writes.

"That isn’t to say the voting margins in the other five districts guarantee Republican victories this fall," Rove writes.

"But the strong economy, the president’s rising approval numbers, and the decline of the Democrats’ generic-ballot advantage are great signs for the GOP. If Republican candidates don’t let up, they should hold most of these seats, dealing a major blow to Democrats’ hopes of taking back the House," Rove writes.
