John Cox for Governor
California has the highest poverty rate in the nation. Our schools are failing and millions of forgotten Californians cannot afford decent housing. Millions more must choose between buying a half tank of gas or groceries for their families, a choice no one should have to make. All of this happened on Gavin Newsom’s watch.
Thanks to businessman John Cox, help is on the way.
