Larry Elder says he would replace Dianne Feinstein with a Republican if he wins California recall election
Larry Elder, a gubernatorial candidate in California’s Gavin Newsom recall election, said he would replace U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein, a Democrat, with a Republican – if Elder becomes governor and Feinstein were to step down during his term.
Feinstein, now 88 years old, has served in the Senate since the early 1990s and says she has no plans to step down despite some Democrats hoping she would. A New Yorker piece that came out last year reported House Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and others had been concerned about her memory and ability to focus, especially during the Justice Amy Coney Barrett confirmation hearings. Feinstein balked at the criticism.
The recall election on Sept. 14 was once seen as an easy win for Newsom who needs 50% support from voters to shrug off his challengers, but polling over the summer showed a tightening race. The most recent poll, however, showed the Democrat widening his lead again in the final stretch.

California has a population of over 30 Million. 170,000 homeless represents less than 0.6% of the population.
Furthermore, 58% of the forested land in California is owned by, and the responsibility of, the Federal government.
If the State is "on fire", you could just as easily blame the prior US administration for failing to "rake its forests" properly.
