    SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – It’s not uncommon in California for residents to seek recalls but they rarely get on the ballot - and even fewer succeed. Several launched against Newsom faded but another attempt is drawing greater attention as his fortunes change while he enters a critical stretch in his governorship. Recall organizers say they have collected have reached 1.2 million signatures toward the 1.5 million petition signatures needed to place the recall on the ballot, and they have until mid-March to hit the required threshold. Rescue CA has a goal of getting in enough signatures to help the effort...

    MADISON, Wis. — Gov. Tony Evers has authorized the Wisconsin National Guard to support the state’s Capitol Police. National Guard members will mobilize to help with security efforts at the Wisconsin State Capitol, according to a news release Monday. The announcement comes hours after the FBI warned of plans for armed protests at all 50 state capitals and in Washington, D.C. ahead of President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration. Less than a week has passed since a mob of pro-Trump supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday afternoon. Crews in Madison have boarded up windows at the State Capitol building as a...

    They sat close together — hundreds of them — holding candles in the cavernous sanctuary of Legacy Church on Christmas Day, few of them appearing to wear masks. Photos and video of that gathering and a Christmas Eve service at Calvary Church have drawn public outrage on social media and on Monday the state Department of Health notified the two churches that they were each being fined $5,000 for violating New Mexico’s public health orders. Those orders, aimed at stopping the spread of COVID-19, limit occupancy of churches and other public spaces, mandate the wearing of masks and urge social...

    ATLANTA — Georgia’s governor is again telling lawmakers that he won’t call a special session to overturn Georgia’s election results and appoint 16 presidential electors who would support Republican President Donald Trump instead of Democratic president-elect Joe Biden. Republican Brian Kemp issued a joint statement Sunday with Republican Lt. Gov. Geoff Duncan, saying it would violate state law for the General Assembly to name electors instead of following the current state law that calls for the governor to certify electors after results are certified. “Any attempt by the legislature to retroactively change that process for the Nov. 3rd election would...

    Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger certified the election results in November, giving Joe Biden the state’s 16 electoral votes. “Working as an engineer throughout my life, I live by that numbers don’t lie. As secretary of state, I believe that the numbers that we have presented today are correct,” Raffensperger said during a news conference. “The numbers reflect the verdict of the people, not a decision by the secretary of state’s office or our courts, or of either campaigns.” Raffensperger then took no questions. Even at that time the recount appeared to be rigged because elections officials were not...

    COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — For months, Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine steered cleared of second-guessing President Donald Trump, a fellow Republican, despite their polar-opposite responses to the pandemic. The governor’s reward? A suggestion by the president that another Republican should challenge him in Ohio’s 2022 election. Trump’s warning came after DeWine said it was time to realize Joe Biden had won the presidential race. That was just the start of a rough few days last week for the Ohio governor, who is dealing with a state he says “is on fire” with skyrocketing coronavirus cases, and now finds himself fending off...

    Yesterday, Governor Mike DeWine signed House Bill 614 into law, legislation that should help to relax the concerns of law-abiding Ohio gun owners whose CHLs are expiring soon. An amendment to HB 614 extends all CHL expiration dates through at least June 30, 2021. In addition, if a license expires between April 1, 2021 and June 30, 2021, the license is further extended an additional 90 days past the expiration date. The amendment also removes the contiguous county requirement during the time of Ohio's “emergency order” related to the COVID virus.  So, a licensee may renew at ANY sheriff’s​ office in...

    Will he run again? Is this the start of his comeback? These are questions that will be answered in due time. Former Florida Democratic gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum lost a nail-biter race to Gov. Ron DeSantis. It was a punch to the gut to Democrats in the state that pretty much forced them to reconsider if the state was indeed trending blue. The political environment for Democrats during the 2018 elections was excellent and they couldnÂ’t take back the governorÂ’s mansion? Furthermore, term-limited GOP Governor Rick Scott ran for Senate and beat incumbent Democrat Bill Nelson. Time passes and then...

Edgar, former U.S. Rep. Ray LaHood, and ex-Illinois Republican Party chair Pat Brady said they would be voting for Biden the week of the Republican National Convention. “He’s been more of a disappointment than I thought he’d be,” Edgar said in an interview with WBEZ. “I think he bungled the pandemic thing. He undercuts our allies. I don’t understand his relationship with [Russian President Vladmir] Putin. The list goes on and on....
