Rep. Adam Schiff (America Last D-CA) is making a bid for the Senate, but he’s got a fight on his hands against Republican Steve Garvey. The former Dodgers and Padres baseball star is going all-in in his an attempt to wrest the Senate seat long-held by retiring Sen. Diane Feinstein from Democrats, and he’s making a splash.

Garvey has surged in recent polls and the chance of a face-off with the Schiff lying liar who lies looks increasingly likely.

USAToday reports (archive link):

Republican candidate for California’s open U.S. Senate seat Steve Garvey soared into a statistical tie with frontrunner Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff just days away from the March 5 primary, new polling indicates.

In new figures released March 1 from the UC Berkeley Institute of Governmental Studies, former baseball star and political newcomer Steve Garvey is the choice of 27% of likely voters followed by Schiff’s 25%—within the margins of error effectively placing them neck-and-neck.

The numbers are the latest indication that Garvey has succeeded in consolidating California’s Republican voters, aided by name recognition and, political analysts speculate, Schiff’s controversial ad campaigns elevating the Republican’s profile. The polling shows 67% of likely Republican and conservative voters throw their support behind Garvey.

It’s hard to imagine California electing a Republican senator (there hasn’t been one since the early ’90s), but who knows, the voters still stuck in Gruesome Newsom’s dystopia and disgusted by Schiff’s many lies may be inspired to vote for change.

Hey, it could happen.

Garvey makes his case.

Mercury News has more:

But in a surprising twist, Friday’s Berkeley Institute of Governmental Studies poll taken just a week before the March 5 primary Election Day found 27% of likely voters supporting Garvey, 25% Schiff, 19% Porter and 8% Lee, with 12% split among 23 other candidates and 9% undecided.

“These findings represent a dramatic change in the standings when compared to earlier polls in the Senate race,” IGS said in an analysis of its findings, noting Garvey “is now in a statistical tie” with Schiff, the race’s longtime frontrunner. The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 2 percentage points. It was conducted online in English and Spanish from Feb. 22-27 among 3,304 likely California voters.

The two candidates who receive the most votes in the primary will compete against each other for the seat in November.

Garvey, of Palm Desert, said Friday that he was “deeply humbled by the trust and support shown by Californians in the latest poll.”

It’s pretty remarkable to see a Republican doing so well in a Senate race in California.
