A California judge has ordered the state to put conservative radio host Larry Elder on gubernatorial recall ballot, with a new poll showing him leading all challengers if residents vote in favor of recalling Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom.
A Sacramento County judge ruled Wednesday the California Secretary of State had to put Elder on the ballot, after saying he failed to submit all of the required documents before deadline.
“The politicians in Sacramento know I’m the only candidate who can beat Gavin Newsom,” Elder said. “They are afraid, and they are using whatever shenanigans they can to try to trip me up. It won’t work.”
In the statewide poll of over 1,000 registered voters, 16% said Elder is the candidate they would you vote for “to replace Gov. Gavin Newsom if he is recalled.”
Fifty-three percent of the respondents said they were “undecided,” according to the joint poll by Inside California Politics/Emerson College.
Residents moved to recall Newsom through a petition drive, largely of what they considered his mishandling of the state response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Elder, who announced last week he was running, submitted his nomination paperwork and five years of tax returns on Friday, the candidate deadline for the Sept. 14 election.

But when the secretary of state’s office released a list of candidates who had met the requirements to qualify for the ballot Saturday, Elder was not among them. The office told Elder’s campaign that its candidate’s tax returns were incomplete or improperly submitted.Filing tax returns is a new requirement of a law signed by Newsom in 2019.
Elder, who is also an attorney, sued the secretary of state, arguing that the rule should not apply to the recall election because it specifically states that releasing tax returns is a prerequisite for appearing on a primary ballot. He also asserted that if the law did apply, his filings met the requirements. Judge Laurie M. Earl agreed with both arguments, according to The Los Angeles Times.John Cox and Kevin Faulconer are tied in second place at 6% in the poll.”I am waging a legal battle to run as the candidate for Californians who are […]
Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our Giving Fuel. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
