Larry Elder joins the race to oust Cal. Gov. Newsom

A big name just entered the race to unseat California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D).

Fox News reports that Conservative radio host Larry Elder on Monday announced his entry into California’s recall election. 

“I’m running for governor because the decline of California isn’t the fault of its people,” Elder said. “Our government is what’s ruining the Golden State.”

Elder continued:

Our schools are closed to both students and their parents. Our streets aren’t safe from rising violent crime or the disaster of rising homelessness. And the scandals of Sacramento aren’t going to stop on their own. It’s time to tell the truth. We’ve got a state to save.

Background

On September 14th, a recall election will be held for the California governorship.

The recall effort developed in response to Newsom’s handling of his state’s coronavirus response. The effort, though, really picked up after Newsom was caught dining at a fancy restaurant in violation of his own coronavirus rules.

Since that time, with the state loosening up its coronavirus rules, Newsom has regained some of his popularity in California. But, it remains unclear whether he regained enough of that popularity to survive this recall election. Newsom continues to face criticism for other issues, such as the power shortages that have resulted from California’s green energy push or the state’s recurrent wildfires.

Looking ahead

In the recall election, voters will be asked two things: first, whether Newsom ought to be removed, and, second, who should replace him. Obviously, the second question only matters if a majority answers affirmatively to the first question.

Candidates have until July 16th to file papers to enter the race. Many candidates, in addition to Elder, already have, and when all is said and done it is expected that there will be dozens of candidates in the race.

This means that there is every possibility that someone can win the race with as little as 20 percent of the vote. Many argue that this really opens the door up for a Republican candidate to win.

Some of the other Republicans in the field, besides Elder, are Kevin Faulconer, the former San Diego Mayor, John Cox, a businessman who ran against Newsom before in 2018, Kevin Kiley, a state assemblyman, Caitlyn Jenner, the former Olympian turned reality TV personality , and Doug Ose, the former U.S. representative.

A Democrat, however, is still favored to win the recall election given the lead that the party has in voter registration in the state of California.
