This may be California Governor Gavin Newsom’s #TimesUp moment. No, it’s not over a sex scandal. The voters of California have spoken and they want a recall election. This news comes from the Secretary of State who confirmed today that enough valid signatures were collected to force a recall election.
According to FoxLA:
This is only the second time in California history that a governor has been voted to be removed from office. It remains unclear when the election will be held. As of Monday, more than 1,495,709 verified voters signed the recall effort, meeting the minimum threshold to force a special recall election.
The next phase of the recall process is the 30-business day period in which voters may request county elections officials to remove their names from recall petitions. County elections officials must report any withdrawn signatures to the Secretary of State within ten business days of the end of the signature withdrawal period. The Secretary of State must then determine if the petition still has the requisite number of valid signatures to initiate a recall election.
This is the third recall effort against Newsom. The first two fell well short, but a combination of poor Covid-19 responses and scandals surrounding his personal privilege during lockdowns exacerbated the other mounting problems facing the Governor and his state.
“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,” Secretary Weber said in a statement. “A recall election will be held unless a sufficient number of signatures are withdrawn.”
Several Republican candidates, including Caitlyn Jenner and former candidate John Cox, have already declared they’re running against the Governor.
