5 important things to do after California’s governor easily defeated the recall

California Governor Gavin Newsom on Tuesday slammed a Republican recall effort by changing the competition’s stakes from a referendum on his performance and a partisan fight over Trumpism and the coronavirus.

Five key points from Newsom’s win:

COVID Precautions Could Help Democrats

Republicans intended to be a referendum on the Democrat regime of California, and the homelessness, crime, high housing costs and the energy problems that accompanied it. But with a little political maneuvering – and with the help of a delta version of the spread – Newsom turned it into a referendum for Republicans in protest of the precautions against the coronavirus.

Republicans running to replace Newsom opposed the mask and vaccine mandate, and the governor of California was happy to highlight it. Newsom aired an ad calling the recall “a matter of life and death” and accused the top Republican candidate, talk radio host Larry Elder, of “advancing deadly conspiracy theories.”

Ironically, Newsom was remembered in November after being caught at a lobbyist’s birthday party at a swanky Napa Valley restaurant – unmasked and at a large party that violated his own social distancing orders. But his strategists have been arguing for weeks that his leadership during the pandemic is a plus for him – and that other Democrats shouldn’t be afraid to take the lead on the issue.

Newsom emphasized the virus in his remarks after the win. “I want to focus on what we said as a state: we said ‘yes’ to science, we said ‘yes’ to vaccines, we said ‘yes’ to vaccines,” the governor told reporters. Said ‘yes’.”

GOP revives baseless fraud claims

Republicans’ baseless claims of electoral fraud aren’t going away anytime soon.

Even as ballots were still being cast, Republicans were claiming that the election was “rigged”. It was an unfounded allegation—and an odd one given that Republicans did relatively well in November under the same California election system, securing four congressional seats.
