Utah is a conservative state stuck with a Republican Senator who hates conservatives. Putting Mitt Romney aside (which most conservatives in the U.S. would love to do,) Utah is facing a grave danger. The danger is called Californians.
After the National Governors Assn. Annual winter meeting on Friday, Utah Governor Spencer Cox stood in front of the White House and said:
“This last census confirmed that Utah was the fastest-growing state over the past 10 years. Our biggest problems are more growth-related. We would love for people to stay in California instead of coming as refugees to Utah.”
Cox claimed he wanted people to stay in California because of Utah’s limited resources. According to the LA Times, Utah is beset by problems, including housing and water shortages. Not mentioned but most probably part of the Cox thinking is many in conservative Utah are worried that far-left Californians running away from more woke than woke California, bringing their leftist votes to Utah, changing their red state to blue, and littering their sidewalks with human turds.
It’s not only Cox. Many in Utah are showing their displeasure with the Californian influx by placing a decal on the back windows of their cars.
Governor Cox actually came up with a solution. He suggested that California cut taxes and regulations to prevent citizens from moving to Utah.
If he really believes his suggestion has any possibility of implementation in Gavin Newsom’s California, then poor Spencer Cox needs to see a doctor immediately to treat his mental illness.
