Steve Garvey & Adam Schiff Will Face Off In November For U.S. Senate

Republican former baseball star Steve Garvey has secured a U.S. Senate showdown with Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff on a shoestring budget and with a light campaign schedule. But he now faces a daunting question: What’s next? Republicans haven’t elected a Senate candidate in heavily Democratic California since 1988. And registered Democrats hold a 2-to-1 margin over Republicans in the state. Garvey is likely to have a challenging time raising money, with control of the House and Senate in play. And he will be on the ballot with the GOP presidential ticket likely headed by former President Donald Trump, who is deeply unpopular in California outside his loyal base.
