Skip to comments.Gov. Gavin Newsom to face recall election as Republican-led effort hits signature goal (IT'S ON LIKE DONKEY KONG!)

SACRAMENTO — Propelled by growing voter frustration over California’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic, a Republican-led drive to remove Gov. Gavin Newsom from office collected enough voter signatures to qualify for the ballot, state officials reported Monday, triggering for only the second time in the state’s history a rapid-fire campaign to decide whether to oust a sitting governor.
Recall backers submitted more than 1,495,709 verified voter signatures — equal to 12% of all ballots cast in the last gubernatorial election — meeting the minimum threshold to force a special recall election, according to a tally released by Secretary of State Shirley Weber. Barring intervention by the courts, Newsom will face a statewide vote of confidence by year’s end.
Though recent opinion polls showed that only 40% of California voters support recalling Newsom, an indication that the effort might fail, the success of the recall campaign in gathering enough valid signatures for a special election delivers a blow to Newsom as one of the nation’s most prominent and politically ambitious Democrats, who raised his national profile as a liberal foil to former President Trump.

Never saw so many people in line to vote as on the day of the Grey Davis recall.
Things looked hopeful...then Arnold turned out to be a left wing Trojan Horse.
Recall this narcissistic, adulterous, bastard, SOB!!!
And if he’s re-”elected?”
Texas will get more refugees from California.
Indeed - things were looking OK until that disastrous mid-term referendum on (by my memory) trying to control government union pension costs. After Arnold lost that, he didn't just stop caring, he went full left-tard.
I can’t for the life of me, understand why Democrat politicians seem to think it’s smart politics to treat constituents with contempt. Something about their parents never teaching them actions have consequences I guess.
Question: Will we or will we not blow it? There’s a big opportunity here. Why the rats would want to see him could have to do with 2024 but come on. His track record would be a big embarrassment but unashamed. Can we send the country a message? Never miss an opportunity to miss an opportunity.
All that just to get Gov. Jenner. LOL!
The Kalif RAT Party will find a way to make this go away. They are complete criminals and will do anything to retain power.
Then it's up to us to keep that from happening.
“...why Democrat politicians seem to think it’s smart politics to treat constituents with contempt...”
They’re all fascists, Jim.
Nazi Pelosi could demote herself to governess.
I sure don’t see an opportunity. Nothing can save California.
They don’t want to be saved.
My cousin in CA told me, Newsom is showering her university with cash from helicopters.
So what gets to replace him? I suspect it won’t be any better.
Recall in this case is a form of self-defense. Somebody has to jump into the political void. It must be someone serious... Caitlyn Jenner? No.
