California Democratic Party Statement on Steve Bannon's Appearance at GOP Convention

California Democratic Party Chair Eric C. Bauman released the following statement in reaction to the California Republican Party Convention, featuring headline speaker Steve Bannon: 

"Steve Bannon is a race-baiting thug masquerading as a pseudo-intellectual. Not since the days of George Wallace and Bull Connor have such prominent racists been considered political leaders, but it’s clear that the Donald Trump Republican Party has chosen to double down on the alt-right, white supremacist element that Steve Bannon so proudly represents.

Let’s be absolutely clear: Steve Bannon’s slimy politics are the politics of rapacious greed, ignorant fear and astounding contempt for women, people of color, the LGBT community, immigrants and the poor and middle class. If California Republicans are wondering why they have been virtually wiped out in California, it’s because they continue to embrace hateful, divisive men like Steve Bannon and Donald Trump as their prophets and leaders.”
