San Francisco would form part of a smaller urban state
A group of people have declared independence from the state of California and hope to form the state of New California. In 2014, Silicon Valley venture capitalist Tim Draper submitted signatures to put a measure that would split California in six separate states.

Left-wing Californians warmed to the idea of secession past year after President Donald Trump was installed in office, but the "CalExit" movement remains stalled.
While there are many signs around the Mother Lode calling for a State of Jefferson, a new group has formed proposing to expand the area that would encompass a 51st state.

His proposed state would give greater representation to California's rural areas, as opposed to the urban and more left-wing coast that Preston said represents bonds of tyranny. You would think it might be a little more conservative on the New California side and liberal on the other, but we get calls from Los Angeles County and Sacramento.
