As California and New York said they’d coordinate reopenings with neighboring states, mainstream US media suddenly rediscovered the virtue of federalism, while some online activists even cheered the notion of separatism. California Governor Gavin Newsom got the ball rolling Monday, by announcing his state would coordinate ending the coronavirus shutdown with the neighboring Oregon and Washington further north – both run by Democrats as well – and not follow the lead of President Donald Trump and the federal government in Washington, DC. Such theories were further fueled by Newsom’s comments last week, when he described California as a “nation-state.” Asked about it on Monday, he defended it as a “choice of words that gives you a sense of the scale and scope,” for a state that’s “larger than 21+ states combined, the world’s 5th largest economy, most diverse state and democracy.”
