  • #Calexit
  • Trump tax plan to bring overseas tech money back to U.S.
  • What’s next for Democrats?

Good morning. TGIT. It was foolish on our part to assume the election madness would end post election, with protests against Donald Trump’s victory occurring throughout the state and now a secession movement is gaining a little steam.

But independent of all that, we put together 10 things that stood out to us from Tuesday’s election.

CalWatchdog has more. 

In other news:

  • Non-progressive blip: One thing that really stood out was the state’s position on the Death Penalty. Not only did voters decide to keep it in place, but it looks like a measure to speed up the appeals process may pass. CalWatchdog has more. 

  • Going somewhere? “(A) group of secessionists is taking advantage of post-election discontent and reintroducing a proposal to make California its own country. And it’s gaining momentum,” reports The Sacramento Bee.

  • Taxes: “A tax plan from President-elect Donald Trump could solve one of the biggest problems facing the Bay Area’s tech industry: billions in cash parked overseas, with foreign governments itching to get their hands on it.” The San Jose Mercury News has more. 

  • What’s next for Democrats? “Shocked by Donald Trump’s stunning victory, California Democrats are turning their attention to the next generation of politicians emerging as future party leaders at the state and national level,” writes Politico

Legislature:

  • Gone till December. 

Gov. Brown:

  • No public events announced.
