Gavin Newsom can’t deny it anymore. He’s facing an honest-to-goodness crisis.
Multiple sources are confirming that the recall effort in California has gathered over 100,000 more verified signatures than they need to qualify. After months of insisting that a recall was unlikely, Newsom now faces a confirmed challenge.
The Daily Wire reports:
The effort to recall Democratic California Governor Gavin Newsom reached the requisite number of signatures to land on the ballot later this year, according to a Monday announcement from the California secretary of state’s office.
California Secretary of State Shirley N. Weber said that the threshold of verified signatures reported by counties — set at 1,495,709 — had been met. According to the latest update, 1,626,042 signatures have been submitted and verified, as Fox News reported.
Newsom has been worse than a typical Democrat in a deep blue state.
He’s widely disliked by even the most steadfast members of his own party. His widely reported gaffes, which included eating out at a swanky fine dining restaurant during the lockdown, and sending his kids to private school, then lying about it, have made him a pariah even in non-Republican circles.
It’s not over, till its over, but Newsom can’t be sleeping too well after this news.
