Steve Garvey will speak to East Valley Republican Women Patriots

PALM DESERT — Long before Fox News, Sports Illustrated, Orange County Register, CBS News, POLITICO, Los Angeles Times, and many other news “broke news” that Steve Garvey is weighing a 2024 bid for Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s open seat, East Valley Republican Women Patriots likely had the real scoop.

For weeks, the group has been promoting Steve Garvey as a guest speaker on Monday, June 5.

In its promotional materials, the group writes, “Baseball legend, Steve Garvey will speak to us about taking back the Golden State along with learning about the extreme consequences of the border out of control from Todd Bensman!”

The clues were there all along!

Steve Garvey, who won the National League MVP Award in 1974, is considering a Senate bid for 2024. He lives in Rancho Mirage.

Garvey, 74, who spent his 19-year career with the Los Angeles Dodgers and San Diego Padres, is meeting with voters and senior GOP officials – he discussed entering politics after retiring, but never followed through.

“I have been approached to run for office and am exploring that. No announcement is imminent,” Garvey said in a statement released by a Dodgers team spokesperson.

Garvey would run as a Republican. A Republican candidate has not won a U.S. Senate race in California since 1988, one year after Garvey’s final MLB game.

Republicans are outnumbered 2-to-1 by Democratic voters in the state, and they have struggled for years to find candidates for top elected offices, according to Fox News.

Bensman is the author of the 2023 book OVERRUN, How Joe Biden Unleashed the Greatest Border Crisis in U.S. History and also America’s Covert Border War: The Untold Story of the Nation’s Battle to Prevent Jihadist Infiltration.
