California Gov. Gavin Newsom ended his campaign on Tuesday to keep his job leading voters to a vote to determine whether he should be recalled and potentially replaced by another candidate. needed.
Newsom, a Democrat, recently found support from overwhelmingly members of his own party, including President Joe Biden, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Vice President Kamala Harris.
On Monday night, Biden gave a campaign speech for Newsom in California, attacking Republican challenger Larry Elder, a conservative radio and EpochTV host. Biden Tried To Mark Elder As A “Trump Clone”.
“I’m going to make it as simple as I can, you either have Gavin Newsom as your governor, or you get Donald Trump. It’s no joke,” Biden said. “In Gavin, you have a is the governor who shares the values of the state; In Gavin, you have a governor to make sure Donald Trump’s black, destructive, divisive politics never finds a place in California.
Elder, who could become California’s first black governor, called on Californians to vote yes in favor of the recall.
“Vote no, Gavin, for the future of California? Vote yes. Vote yes for the schools that serve our children. Vote yes for managing our forests. Vote yes for safe and clean roads. California Vote yes for the future of wrote on Twitter.
“Make sure your friends vote, vote, vote, and try and vote for 10 more friends and hit every call, every call, knock on every door, if we vote we’ll do this Cheese’s about to win, Elder also said Monday from a hotel ballroom in Costa Mesa.
California voters faced two questions Tuesday, whether Newsom should be recalled, and if he is recalled, who will replace him. If more than 50 percent of voters cast their vote to recall the governor, the person with the most votes in response to the second question will be named the governor of California.
Voting in the Golden State will close at 8 p.m. PT, but due to the large amount of mail-in ballots, it is unclear when the election results will be final.
“There is no scenario where we lose tomorrow,” Newsom strategist Sean Clegg told local news outlets.
But Thad Kauser, a professor of political science at the University of California-San Diego, told local station KGTV that Republicans have a chance at the polling stations on Tuesday.
“What we saw in the 2020 election is that Republicans in California now prefer to cast their ballots in person,” Kauser said. “So, as these vote centers are opening over the weekend and through Election Day, I think we’ll see the next group of voters more strongly flock to Republicans.”
The campaign to remove the Democratic governor began with a conservative Republican group and gained steam during the pandemic. Supporters of the recall angered by Newsom’s policies on immigration, crime and homelessness were also outraged by his decision to close schools and require masks and mandatory vaccinations against COVID-19.
The hostility against the governor’s COVID-19 mandate reached a boiling point when Newsom was seen dining at an upscale restaurant, the French Laundry, last year, while he and others were not social distancing or wearing masks.
