Could Bush Win California?

Could Bush Win California?

George Will lays out a very plausible scenario by which George W. Bush could conceivably win California. It all depends on the outcome of the Republican senatorial primary.

"[S]uppose Republican voters -- a recent poll showed half of them undecided -- create the year's most mesmerizing Senate race by nominating Rosario Marin. She is the 45-year-old former U.S. Treasurer and mayor of Huntington Park, a 95 percent Latino town of 60,000 in southeast Los Angeles County, where Democrats have a 5-to-1 registration advantage."

Rosario Marin, the child of Mexican immigrants would draw votes from women and hispanics, two groups that Bush lost badly in 2000.
