The campaign to recall California Governor Gavin Newsom has reached its official threshold of signatures, and that means Newsom is extremely likely to face a recall vote.
Californians already had issues with Newsomn’s policies back in 2019, but his handling of the COVID pandemic and the lock downs that crippled the state’s economy, pushed many voters over the edge.
Now he is going to face their wrath at the ballot box.
Breitbart News reports:
It’s Official: Signatures Trigger Recall Election for California Gov. Gavin Newsom
California Governor Gavin Newsom (D) will almost certainly face a recall election later this year, after Secretary of State Shirley Weber announced Monday afternoon that the signature threshold had been reached.
In a statement, Weber said:
California Secretary of State Dr. Shirley N. Weber has announced that the threshold of verified signatures reported by counties has been met for the recall of Governor Gavin Newsom. The valid signatures in the 10th report are 1,626,042, which exceeds the total of 1,495,709 signatures required. Counties still have until April 29th to verify the validity of any remaining signatures.
“This now triggers the next phase of the recall process, a 30-business-day period in which voters may submit written requests to county Registrars of Voters to remove their names from the recall petition,” Secretary Weber said. “A recall election will be held unless a sufficient number of signatures are withdrawn.”
Gavin Newsom earned this.

Gavin Newsom is getting recalled officially. One recommendation for anyone running: show footage of CA’s once beautiful cities in utter disrepair. The dystopia that SF has become is inexcusable.

The people of California deserve much better than what they have had.
