    As In-N-Out boycott plan flops, Dem party chief dines alone, GOP feasts

    As In-N-Out boycott plan flops, Dem party chief dines alone, GOP feasts

    By Lukas Mikelionis | Fox News

    California state Democrats are distancing themselves from the state party’s chief after he called for the boycott of a beloved burger chain after it donated cash to the state’s Republican Party.

    The political feud began last week when Eric Bauman, head of the California Democratic Party, called for the boycott of California-based In-N-Out over its $25,000 donation to the GOP.

    Bauman’s call soon became a headache for the party as it captured national headlines and gave ammunition to the GOP as the Democratic leader threatened to alienate the loyal customers of a wildly popular restaurant chain.

    But the state Democratic Party quickly backtracked, saying Bauman’s call for a boycott was merely his “personal view” and wasn’t being considered by the state Democratic Party as a policy.

    “We’re not happy that In-N-Out gave the money, but we’re not calling for an official boycott,” John Vigna, the party’s communications director, told the Los Angeles Times. “Democrats are very fired up. Chair [Bauman] is definitely giving voice to a feeling a lot of people have right now.”

    "We’re not happy that In-N-Out gave the money, but we’re not calling for an official boycott."
    - John Vigna, the state Democratic Party communications director

    Ordinary voters, too, seemed to be against a boycott.

    “Eating at In-N-Out is such a standard thing to do across California,” Anthony Grigore told the Times, dismissing the idea of a boycott as rather silly.

    California Republican Party Chairman Jim Brulte on the fallout from calls to boycott In-N-Out Burger over a donation to the California Republican Party.

    “The stomach overrules the mind,” Jaime Regalado, emeritus professor of political science at Cal State L.A., told the newspaper. “A cheap, good-tasting burger is hard to dismiss politically.”

    But despite the damage control, Republicans seized on the opportunity to have a political feast, posting images and declarations of support for the chain.

    “Enjoying our favorite fast food restaurant, In-N-Out Burger, at the Capitol today. No boycott here!” Republican state Sen. Jim Nielsen wrote on Facebook, attaching a photo of himself surrounded by multiple orders of burgers and fries.

    Republican gubernatorial candidate John Cox posted on Twitter a photo of himself in front an In-N-Out as well, saying “There’s nothing more Californian than In-N-Out Burger.”

    Matt Fleming, a spokesman for the California Republican Party, also weighed in on the issue.

    “It’s disappointing that he’s attacking a company that’s a California institution and widely regarded as a good employer,” he wrote in a tweet.

    Meanwhile, In-N-Out released a statement addressing the donations to the Republican Party, claiming that the chain has made “equal contributions to both Democratic and Republican” PACs in California this year.

    “For years, In-N-Out Burger has supported lawmakers who, regardless of political affiliation, promote policies that strengthen California and allow us to continue operating with the values of providing strong pay and great benefits for our associates,” Executive Vice President Arnie Wensinger said

    We see these ongoing boycotts from liberals, open borders, gun control, atheists, LGQT, other groups. It quite often backfires on them.

    I read the Red Hen restaurant article that talks about the tourism problems the area is now experiencing since the Sarah Sanders situation. People need to stop and think.

    Yeah, the Lexington, VA Chamber of Commerce is going to have to use their emergency fund to do some advertising to try to pull tourists back into town. Who did they think visited their town, DemoQuacks? No, Republicans!!

    I lived in Baldwin Park a block away from the very first In-N-Out Burger. As they expanded they built a second one on the opposite side of the railroad tracks, about 1000 feet from the first. I found out that was the In-N-Out Burger University! Then they built their headquarters at the end of the street I lived on. I ate there often. I would eat there now, just to support the opposition to the boycott, but there isn't a restaurant within 50 miles of me.

    I have been to Lexington, VA with my RV for a week on vacation. It is a cute little town. We always go to the Visitor Center, get maps, have lunch and shop in these towns.

    They depend on the tourism dollars. The people there should demand the Red Hen be sold off and renamed!
