Republican bigwigs are distressed by their Nominee-Presumptive. This is quite a statement:
But seriously, is Donald Trump any more of a hater than California Governor Pete Wilson was in 1994 when he surged to re-election behind Prop. 187? That initiative to denied health care, education and social services to undocumented children and adults. For months Wilson's TV ads blanketed the state featuring a voice intoning "they keep on coming" while shadowy figures ran across roads and scrambled over fences.
Wilson's great success at mobilizing resentment made him a potential Republican presidential nominee in 1996 before he faded. Backlash among California's Latinos also reduced the California Republican Party to a feeble facsimile of a functioning organization within a decade. But hey, Wilson won his race and we didn't hear Republicans complaining about "evil" and decency squandered.
Trump is only voicing what has long been there.
