CALIFORNIA (September 14, 2021)—today voters in California are heading to the polls to decide whether to remove Democratic Governor Gavin Newsom in a recall election. But regardless if Newsom is recalled or not–the governor has lost his ability to lead the State.
Although Newsom is defending his expensive COVID-19 pandemic meal, closing small businesses and denying minority students the opportunity to obtain scholarships he was joined by U.S. President Joe Biden late Monday in a final campaign rally in the southern city of Long Beach to urge Democrats to turn out in the polls and reject the recall.
“The eyes of the nation are on California,” President Biden told the crowd, “because the decision you’re going to make isn’t just going to have a huge impact on California, it’s going to reverberate around the nation, and quite frankly, not a joke, around the world.”
The recall was launched by angered California voters over Newsom’s strict COVID-19 rules throughout the pandemic, including school closures and restrictions on small businesses such as bars and restaurants. Organizers secured enough signatures of registered voters to force the recall on the ballot.
Even if Newsom stays off his opponents in the recall–in the mind of the voters–he failed the people.
