Nobody thought it would happen. But it looks like Governor of California Gavin Newsom is in big trouble.
What started out as a hopeless recall effort exploded in popularity, after prolonged shutdowns and other botched actions by the governor.
The recall organizers revealed they collected 2 million signatures. That 500,000 more than the needed 1.5 million.
And Newsom is starting to feel the heat.
California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) is not holding back his feelings — he’s concerned about the push to recall him as the Golden State’s chief executive…
Appearing on The View Tuesday, Newsom candidly addressed the effort to remove him from office. He began by blasting conspiracy theorists he claims are the primary drivers of the recall petition — which, the governor acknowledges, appears to have gathered the necessary number of signatures to force a recall election.
In a pathetic attempt to discredit the recall movement, Newsom is playing the oldest leftist trick in the book.
From Daily Caller:
Gov. Gavin Newsom accused organizers of the state’s recall petition of racism because they want stronger border control and limitations to immigration…
“Look at the petition, look at the actual reasons they themselves listed. It has to do with immigration,” Newsom said, Fox News reported. “The browning of California.”
You know Gavin is floundering when he claims this recall is about “racism.” When Democrats are out of arguments, they always throw that accusation at conservatives’ faces.
Hmm… maybe the recall has something to do with your horrible handling of the pandemic, Gavin? Maybe 2 million residents didn’t appreciate how you locked down the entire state. But was seen eating at a restaurant (twice)?
Maybe they were outraged that you “canceled” the holidays. Or how you kept kids out of school for a year? Or how you persecuted churches for just exercising their right to worship?
But no, the real reason they want to recall Gavin, a rich white man, is because of racism.
That’s the dumbest thing I’ve heard in a long time… and I have to report on Joe Biden for a living!
The fact of the matter is, Newsom knows he has a real chance of losing a recall race in November.
After landing 2 million signatures, all it would take is for a powerful conservative candidate to motivate voters and seal the deal.
Gavin knows it and he’s panicking.
- The recall movement against Gavin Newsom reached 2 million signatures.
- Newsom admitted on The View that he is growing nervous about the effort.
- He claims that the recall organizers are motivated by racism.
