California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) said last week that the Golden State’s lucrative surfing culture could serve as an example for building a thriving tourism industry in poverty- and violence-plagued El Salvador. Newsom made the remarks after a three-day visit he says was sparked by his interest in seeing first-hand the circumstances driving El Salvadorans to attempt to emigrate to America. Sure. But as CALmatters reports, the visit was also seen by many people – a.k.a. people with working eyeballs – as a way for Newsom to grow his national profile for a potential future presidential run. Because of course it was. Duh.
