California Governor Newsom Launches Campaign Against Recall


California Governor Gavin Newsom finally responded to what he said was a partisan Republic recall. He asked his supporters to check a newly launched website which details the anti-recall campaign. The website mentions that his opponents are Trump supporters. They are also anti-vaxxers, though the former president and his family were vaccinated before they left the White House. The website also calls them anti-immigrant as well as QAnon supporters, the same organization whose members stormed the Capitol on January 6 and caused violence and rioting.


Why is Gavin Newsom good for California?

Governor Gavin Newsom hit the ground running at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. In April, he announced a deal for 200 million masks a month on The Rachel Maddow Show.  

It appeared the Golden State governor could do no wrong in the early weeks of the coronavirus outbreak, with Politico even calling his press conferences “must-see TV.”

Newsom list of examples: “Last 5 years 3.8% GDP growth. 120 consecutive months of net job creation. Record surpluses. Record reserves. Record level of business startups. More scientists, more researchers, more Nobel laureates in this state than in any other state in the nation…The finest system of higher education anywhere.”


Newsom said that he will fight the “partisan, Republican recall though he will not let it distract him from getting Californians vaccinated, from safely reopening the economy and in helping kids get back to school.


Former Yolo County law enforcement officer Orrin Heatlie started the signature campaign for the recall. Although the 160-day clock ended on November 17, a judge gave an extension because of the pandemic as it was argued that additional time was required to get signatures.


Heatlie, the RecallGavin2020 Committee chairman said that they have surpassed the nearly 1.5 million signatures required for a recall election. If these signatures are validated, Californians will have to vote on keeping or recalling the Governor, later in the year, with a simple majority.

This is the sixth time a campaign has been launched against Newsom. Earlier campaign had failed to get sufficient signatures. The National Republican Party had contributed $250,000 to his opponents and now the Democratic Party is matching the sum to help Newsom fend the recall.


On Monday, a coalition of Democrats at the state and national level rallied behind the governor and condemned the right-wing Republicans, the extremists; the wealthy Trump donors have joined forces to recall Governor Newsom. Unfortunately the pandemic has exacerbated his woes.


Emerson College released a new poll on Monday which reported that 72% of voters would vote to keep

Governor Gavin Newsom in office, while 18% would vote for his recall.
