(ConservativeHub.com) – Oppressive COVID-19 restrictions in Democratic-led California have forced businesses big and small to shutter their operations, in some instances permanently. Additionally, months of social unrest, including routine rioting and looting throughout the state, added a further burden to companies already strained to their breaking points.
Fox Business News reported on February 8 that the Walt Disney Company may explore the possibility of transferring some of its operations to Republican-led Florida. Disney told Fox Business it was always “exploring” its options in a statement.

Disney’s potential move comes in the wake of other companies fleeing California for other states led by Republican governors. Tesla, for example, announced its move to Texas last year. Founder Elon Musk said the decision to move was based in large part on California’s coronavirus restrictions.
In the meantime, California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) faces a recall election and two Republican challengers. Perhaps it’s time to return California to the hands of a fiscal conservative.
