The left is terrified that Gavin Newsom could lose in California’s recall election and be replaced by Republican Larry Elder.
A month ago, Democrats were laughing at Larry Elder. They’re not laughing anymore.
The left is now so worried about the outcome that they are trying to get the federal government to declare the recall null and void.
The San Francisco Gate reports:
Federal lawsuit seeks to stop or dramatically alter Gavin Newsom recall election
A federal lawsuit filed in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California seeks to stop the Gavin Newsom recall election from happening as scheduled on Sept. 14.
The suit, filed by voters R.J. Beaber and A.W. Clark, alleges that the recall election is unconstitutional because it denies pro-Newsom voters equal protection of the law guaranteed by the Fourteenth Amendment. This argument was made by Berkeley Law School Dean Erwin Chemerinsky, who wrote a New York Times op-ed last week arguing that because Newsom “can receive far more votes than any other candidate but still be removed from office,” it violates a “core constitutional principle that has been followed for over 60 years: Every voter should have an equal ability to influence the outcome of the election.”
In the recall election, voters will vote on two separate questions: 1. Shall Gavin Newsom be recalled? 2. Which candidate should succeed Newsom if he is recalled? The California Democratic Party is telling its voters to leave question two blank.
“[California’s recall process] flies in the face of the federal legal principle of ‘one person, one vote,’ and gives to voters who vote to recall the Governor two votes — one to remove him and one to select a successor, but limits to only one vote the franchise of those who vote to retain him and that he not be recalled, so that a person who votes for recall has twice as many votes as a person who votes against recall,” the lawsuit states.
The left is also attacking Larry Elder with smears but he is not backing down.
They’re coming at me with every dirty trick because they know what’s coming on September 14. But don’t worry! I’m more energized than ever to fix this state. It starts with recalling the worst governor in California history. #RecallGavinNewsom https://t.co/mnvU6s5Wid

The left’s fear is very telling here. Larry Elder could win and they know it.
It scares the hell out of them.
