Vice President Kamala Harris returned to her hometown of California on Wednesday to campaign for Democratic Governor Gavin Newson, who faces a recall election in the country’s most populous state.
Harris appeared in San Leandro with Newsom and urged voters to vote against the recall effort. The area is not far from Oakland, where Harris was born.
Prior to his appointment as Vice President, Harris was the U.S. Senator representing California. Prior to this, she served as the state attorney general for six years.
She tried to portray the election as an election in which Democratic and Republican priorities conflicted, while echoing Newsom’s campaign message that the impact of the recall is not limited to California.
Democrat Harris told about 200 volunteers and laborers: “What is happening in Texas, what is happening in Georgia, and what is happening around our country, these policies are all about attacking women’s rights, reproductive rights, Voting rights, workers’ rights.” San Leandro’s union members are only six days away from the election day of the governor’s recall on September 14.
“They think if they can win in California, they can do it anywhere. Well, we will tell them you won’t finish this. Never here.”
“California, let us send a message to the world, these are the things we stand for, these are the things we strive for, and we will not give up,” she added.
In a speech of more than 10 minutes, Harris praised the current governor’s handling of the CCP virus pandemic.
According to a report in Sacramento, she said Newsom won by a landslide in 2018, “led bravely” in the early stages of the pandemic, and issued a statewide stay-at-home order before other states in March 2020 to limit the CCP virus. The spread of bees.
Harris also mentioned that Newsom was the mayor of San Francisco in 2004, when he issued a same-sex marriage certificate, when no state recognized same-sex marriage as marriage, and said that he “has the courage to believe and know what is possible,” KGO said.
The vice president praised Newsom’s position on abortion, stating that those who opposed him “will not try to recall him, but because he has always supported reproductive rights.”
At the same time, Harris criticized Texas Governor and Republican Greg Abbott (Greg Abbott) earlier this week against a Texas law banning abortions after detecting a fetal heartbeat. Post a comment.
Albert was asked why the law did not provide for exceptions for rape and incest cases. He replied that the state “will work tirelessly to ensure that we arrest them by actively going out to ensure that we are from the streets of Texas. Eliminate all rapists, prosecute them, and get them off the streets.”
Harris accused Abbott of “arrogantly dismissing concerns about rape survivors.” She tried to distinguish between Abbott and Newsom, claiming that “speaking words that are empty, false, not only arrogant but also bluff-this is not the leader we want. We want our leader to always speak truth like Gavin Newsom talk.”
Outside the outdoor venue, a dozen protesters chanted “Free, free Afghanistan!” and “No deal with the Taliban,” the New York Post reported. Others held up signs to push for Newsom’s removal and supported the removal of Larry Elder, the main challenger of the Chinese Republican Party.
If the governor is removed, Elder will be one of 46 candidates seeking to succeed Newsom. The recall election will require voters to decide whether Newsom should be removed, and who should replace him if it is removed.

Those trying to oust Newsom from power are dissatisfied with a series of problems and policies in the state, including Newsom’s response to the CCP virus pandemic. Business owners and parents expressed disapproval of long-term restrictions on businesses and the closure of face-to-face education. Others were frustrated with the requirement to wear masks and vaccinations, and Newsom has resumed acceptance as the more contagious Delta variant spreads. Some people also cited Newson’s time for parties in Michelin-starred restaurants, and told Californians to stay at home by the end of 2020.
Elder and other major Republican candidates have stated that they will abolish the requirements for wearing masks and vaccinations and support the community’s self-implementation recommendations.
Residents also expressed dissatisfaction with Newsom’s handling of the economy. The state’s taxes are among the highest in the country, and homelessness is out of control.
On June 23, a CapRadio investigation report revealed that Newsom misled the public in his wildfire prevention efforts. The report concluded that Newsom had exaggerated the use of fire protection belts and prescribed burn areas by 690%. Newsom said that fire protection work was carried out on 90,000 acres of land, but according to the state’s own data, the number was 11,399 acres.
Other prominent Democrats also supported Newsom’s opposition to the recall. Senators Elizabeth Warren (Massachusetts Democrat) and Amy Klobuchar (Minnesota Democrat) ran against Newsom last weekend.
Former President Barack Obama released an advertisement on Wednesday focusing on Newsom’s actions during the Chinese Communist virus pandemic. It urged residents to vote “no” to what it said was a party recall effort.

A poll conducted by Emerson College in March found that 58% of Democrats and 55% of independent voters were “open to another Democratic candidate besides Newsom.”
President Joe Biden is also expected to run for governor of California before the election.
