Analysis by the Los Angeles Times shows that Malibu went heavily for democratic gubernatorial Gavin Newsom in this week’s elections.

Except for one precinct … which went heavily for Republican John Cox.

That precinct … the Pepperdine University campus. 

A reminder of the political conservatism of the university that is part of malibu … but clearly not a part of Malibu. 

The rest of Malibu … solidly democratic … solid Newsom country. 


In one election race that sort of snuck by us … a suspect in the Santa Monica Malibu School District fraud case won one of two runoff spots in the race for the State Board of Equalization.
