My madcap adventures in Germany during my year as a Fulbright Scholar.

Xenophobia at work in the GOP of California.

The state party and its 58 county operations face several challenges, Hanretty said, including "redistricting on the ballot, uncertain legislative races ahead of us ... and a number of Republican congressmen who are under federal investigation and are going to be challenged by Democrats."
"Who will help these candidates?" she asked. "A couple of foreign transplants who don't know the political landscape and don't know the history of the complicated politics in California?"

By the way, both "foreign transplants" have many years of experience with the Republican party, and one of them is actually a permanent legal resident of the U.S. who plans to become a citizen.
