Fairly or unfairly, a lot of people hate Adam Schiff already. I don’t think he’d make a great general election candidate.
Edit: I feel like Hillary Clinton had a similar issue. There was already a strong core of people who hated her prior to her run, and tapping into that helped spread her unfavorability numbers as a candidate.
I think he would make a great president but would not get elected. Disappointed he is running for Senate instead of staying in the house. Will be happy to have him or Katie Porter in senate but don’t really need to see a huge battle between them in the election.
