California voters in two northern rural counties split the difference Tuesday on two ballot measures aimed at carving out a 51st state called Jefferson, but the half-loaf result hasn't discouraged the movement's organizers.
Splitting California into six states would be complicated and time-consuming but not impossible, according to a state analysis.
There's nothing like a guy with a few million bucks to lend instant credibility to a previously penny-ante movement to split up the state of California.
"It's going to be a tough one, but I don't know, I have a good feeling about it," said Mr. Baird. "I think that liberty will always find the light of day, and even if it's only 51 percent, it's still a win for us. And we have to do something here, or we're all going to be broke and we're all going to be gone."
"I don't feel bad about Del Norte County. I genuinely don't. I feel bad for Del Norte County," said Mr. Baird.
