Signatures Verified! Gov. Newsom Recall Moves Forward

The movement to recall Democratic California Governor Gavin Newsom will move forward as the California secretary of state announced 1.6 million verified signatures on Monday.

“This now triggers the next phase of the recall process, a 30-business-day period in which voters may submit written requests to county Registrars of Voters to remove their names from the recall petition,” California Secretary of State Shirley Weber said in a statement. “A recall election will be held unless a sufficient number of signatures are withdrawn.”

At that point, a recall election date will be set within approximately 60 days. The recall ould ask voters to choose “yes” or “no” on the question of removing Newsom from office, followed by a selection of replacement candidates. More than 50% of voters would be required to “yes” to remove him. Then, the candidate with the most votes is elected governor, according to Fox News.

Newsom has faced intense criticism for his overreach during the COVID-19 pandemic. The governor was once caught dining maskless with friends at a swanky Napa Valley restaurant while state residents were on lockdown.

In addition, Newsom has encountered fierce opposition from houses of worship that have been shut down for months, including far longer than other states.

Caitlyn Jenner has recently made headlines as a Republican challenger to declare a run against Newsom. The transgender activist and former Olympian believes the time is right to replace the governor.

“California has been my home for nearly 50 years,” Jenner said in the statement. “I came here because I knew that anyone, regardless of their background or station in life, could turn their dreams into reality. But for the past decade, we have seen the glimmer of the Golden State reduced by one-party rule that places politics over progress and special interests over people. Sacramento needs an honest leader with a clear vision.”

Jenner is not Newsom’s only opponent. Republican John Cox, who challenged Newsom in 2018, had previously announced a 2022 run against Newsom. In February, former San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer announced he is also running for governor. Former Rep. Doug Ose has also joined the list of Republican challengers.

The last California governor recall election took place in 2003 involving Gov. Gray Davis. He was defeated by Arnold Schwarzenegger, who served as the last Republican governor in the state from 2003 to 2011.

The momentum has clearly shifted toward a “red moment” in California. Conservatives have a unique opportunity to take leadership of the nation’s most-populated state.

However, the challenge will not be easy. Despite 1.6 million verified signatures, Newsom still believes he will have the votes to win a recall.

In addition, conservatives will have to put forth a candidate who can unite Californians enough to win. Jenner’s celebrity firepower will unlikely be enough. Faulconer may emerge as a leader, but it remains too early to tell.

It’s clear that whoever leads in the Golden State influences the nation. Conservatives across the country could stand to help in whatever ways are possible to encourage new Republican leadership to change the left coast to the best coast.

  1. I hope the beleaguered voters of Mexifornia get their heads outta their asses long enough to realize only they have the power to take back their state and their lives. The 4 flipped House districts were a great shot across the bow, but there are still too many imbeciles in the large population cities. Case in point, Waters, Schiff, Pelosi L.A. mayor were all easily reelected.

  2. I agree with your article. We need to get rid of Gavin Newsome. He is definitely bad for California. He has destroyed our economy and jobs. He needs to go, and not come back. His aunt Nancy Pelosi needs to go as well. Waters, Schiff and Garceti are a cancer to our state. I vote for John Cox for governor. There’s lots of great republican candidates out there.
    I just heard this morning because of the shut downs there are a shortage of truck drivers to deliver gasoline to the gas stations. They said on the channel 5 news that there might not be any gas at the pumps this summer. Thanks to governor Gavin Newsome.
