51. Disagree
Republicans only WON this because it was a Special Election....they couldn't win in normal one and had to make a play for RECALL....they would NEVER win CA any other way.....

I beg to differ. Davis was weak. Period. The only reason Davis won the general was because he intervened in the Republican primary to get a weaker opponent. If Riordan had won the primary, Davis would have been toast. Between them, Arnold and McClintock got 60% of the vote. Sixy percent of the voters voted Republican! Given this, I'd say the Republicans are more than capable of winning a normal election, provided they put up a strong candidate.
