Dr. Pitney on McCain in California

From John Marelius’ article in the Union-Tribune:

California Republicans are confident that in Sen. John McCain they have a presidential candidate who can put California back in the Republican column for the first time in two decades. The question facing the all-but-official GOP nominee is whether it is too expensive to try.

“He’d definitely be more competitive than Mitt Romney would have been,” said Jack Pitney, a politics professor at Claremont McKenna College. “But the strategic question for McCain is whether the chance of carrying California is worth the enormous investment of resources it would take.”

The McCain campaign insists the answer is yes.
