I am not that familiar with cali politics, but I thought dems were pretty dominant in that state?
Also even if they leaned republican there is a difference between a north eastern republican (Eg. Romney, Giuliani, Christie, etc) and a deep south or midwest republican (Demint, Santorum, Ted Cruz, John Cornyn, etc) . I am sure that same applies for california.
On actual social issues, like gun rights, abortion, gay rights, etc. they differ a lot. Eg schwarzenegger was actually quite liberal by national standards.
