Gavin Newsom Remains California Governor After Recall Election

Thumbnail Gavin Newsom RecalljpgDue to poor living conditions in the State of California, a successful recall election was set in motion March 2021 to remove Gavin Newsom (D) from the position of Governor.  Over 2 million signatures were submitted to remove Newsom from office.  A multitude of potential replacements flooded the ballot, including Larry Elder (R), who would have been the State's first African-American Governor.

Governor Newsom was able to rally Democrats like President Biden, Vice President Harris, House Speaker Pelosi, Bernie Sanders and former President Obama to help him raise $83 million to hold on to the Governorship of the largest populated U.S. State.

During his concession speech, radio talk-show host Larry Elder mentioned Gavin Newsom's name and the crowd booed.  Elder quickly quieted his supporters saying "Come on... let's be gracious in defeat.  We may have lost the battle, but we are going to win the war."  The GOP candidate will most likely run for California Governor in 2022.  Addressing his supporters, Elder said "I have been a politician for all of 7 or 8 weeks.  How am I doing?!"  The crowd erupted in cheers.  In closing, Elder predicted he will be asked by the media what he will do next.  He emphasized that he was a "former" radio host and proclaimed "Stay Tuned!"

The next Gubernatorial election for California will be November 8, 2022.
