The Desert Sun reports that a whopping three people, a trio if you will, are moving away from the Coachella Valley.
Frustrated by what they see as the increasing hostility towards the Trump wing of the Republican Party in state and local politics, at least three conservative activists have left, or are planning to leave, Palm Springs for redder pastures.
After years of criticizing Democrats on their weekend Coachella Valley radio show, Bob and Elise Richmond are now headed to Tennessee, essentially voting with their feet.
Their friend and ally, Andrew Hirsch, also intends to leave town in mid-September for upstate New York, where he attended college in the 1970s. Although the Rochester area leans Democrat, it at least provides the GOP with a competitive chance, in Hirsch’s view.
The largely one-party rule in Palm Springs, where progressives control three of five seats, and in Sacramento, where Democrats enjoy a super-majority, has left him feeling “marginalized and isolated,” he said.
