Republican gubernatorial candidate John Cox began his Election Day with a family breakfast and a Tweet urging Californians to make it to the polls. Cox, who is running against Democratic Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom in Tuesday’s election, ate breakfast with his family at Milton’s Deli in Del Mar, just north of San Diego. Before he tucked in, Cox tweeted a picture with his wife Sarah and one of his four daughters. The post urged Californians to vote and said: “Change vs. status quo” with the hashtag, HelpIsOnTheWay. Newsom is the strong favorite in the race, since the state has 3.8 million fewer registered Republican voters than Democrats. Cox has never held elected office.
