Governor Newsom Officially Begins Fight Against Recall Campaign – California Globe
(CALIFORNIA GLOBE) – Governor Gavin Newsom on Monday officially began his fight against his pending recall election by launching the Stop the Republican Recall political committee.
The Committee, which received immediate support from Senators Cory Booker (B-NJ), Alex Padilla (D-CA), Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and Bernie Sanders (I-VT), as well as Congresswoman Katie Porter (D-CA) and former Georgia state Representative Stacey Abrams, aims to Keep Newsom in office as Governor through at least 2022.
According to their website, the committee aims to keep Newsom in office because he “led the state through a global pandemic, record wildfires fueled by climate change and two years with Trump in the White House, he has earned the trust of Californians. He is working every day against difficult odds to keep our families safe, distribute vaccines, protect families from eviction and provide billions in direct relief to individuals and struggling small businesses.”
“Instead of helping fight the pandemic, national Republicans are coming to fight California,” says the site. “Add your name to help stop Republican recall. It’s a power grab.”
