Republicans haven't won a U.S. Senate race in heavily Democratic California since 1988. But this time the party might get an MVP on the ballot. Baseball legend Steve Garvey is seriously considering entering the state's 2024 Senate race as a Republican. His candidacy would reorder a growing field that already includes several prominent Democratic members of Congress. 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. Garvey was a star first baseman for the Los Angeles Dodgers and San Diego Padres, and he was the National League MVP in 1974.
