  • Twice-beaten GOP congressional hopeful delivers some parting shots en route to Texas

Rancho Cucamonga Republican Paul Chabot, who ran unsuccessfully for Congress in 2014 and 2016, is moving to the Lone Star State – but not before dispensing some harsh words for California progressives.

Chabot recently used Facebook to announce his family’s move to McKinney, Texas, lamenting that liberals “have degraded the State of Reagan to but a shell of its former self.”

“Shortly after the November election Brenda and I took a long hard look at our state of California and agreed it was time to move to ‘America,’ to find a region of our nation that embraces the values and morals we cherish,” wrote Chabot, a 42-year-old married father of four.

Chabot said his battles for Congress were a fight to bring back “conservative principles.”

“But voters had other ideas, selecting Hillary (Clinton) by 30-points, voting to legalize drugs, let more felons out of prison, while the super-majority liberals in Sacramento push farther left in radical ideals that simply don’t make sense or align with who we are as Americans.”
