A new report indicates some California Democrats support efforts to recall California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D).
California Republicans have repeatedly floated recalling Newsom, but this is the first proposal with bipartisan support.
Per Fox News:
“We’ve gotten calls from Democrats who are already kicking the tires,’’ a Sacramento insider aligned with a major special interest group told the news outlet.
Newsom initially received praise for his handling of the COVID-19 pandemic, but his credibility took a hit in the wake of an expensive dinner he had last month at French Laundry while telling Californians to stay at home.
“What makes this different is it’s Gavin Newsom itself,” Recall Gavin Newsom senior adviser Randy Economy told “America’s Newsroom” Tuesday.
“This governor is his own worst enemy, and every day he does something more that puts him deeper and deeper into controversy, and he’s become a problem here in California. He shut down the fifth-largest economy in the world the last nine months, and every single person out there in California should be outraged by that.”
So far, over 800,000 Californians have signed on to the campaign to recall Newsom. The number represents more than half of the 1.5 million signatures required by mid-March to get their effort on the ballot.
