Embattled California Governor Gavin Newsom ripped the Republican recall effort growing across the Golden State Tuesday; saying the movement was only supported by “anti-mask, Pro-Trump’ citizens.
“I am not going to take this recall attempt lying down,” Newsom stated in a campaign email, according to National Public Radio. “And let’s call it what it is: it’s a partisan, Republican recall — backed by the [Republican National Committee], anti-mask and anti-vax extremists, and pro-Trump forces who want to overturn the last election and have opposed much of what we have done to fight the pandemic.”
I won’t be distracted by this partisan, Republican recall — but I will fight it.
There is too much at stake.
Getting Californians vaccinated, our economy safely reopened, and our kids back in school are simply too important to risk.

“I just want you to know – we’re not going to change course just because of a few naysayers and doomsdayers,” the governor continued. “To the California critics who are promoting partisan, political power grabs with outdated prejudices and rejecting everything that makes California truly great, we say this: We will not be distracted from getting shots in arms and our economy booming again. This is a fight for California’s future.”
The petition to recall Newsom has already gained nearly 2 million signatures; enough to place the measure on the ballot sometime this year.

GAVIN BEGS: Newsom Caves, Agrees to Re-Open Movie Theaters in Los Angeles as Recall Looms
Embattled California Governor Gavin Newsom agreed this week to allow movie theaters in Los Angeles to re-open at 25% capacity with a maximum number of 100 customers as he fights to survive a political recall in the months ahead.
“Southern California, you will be a beneficiary of this, specifically LA will be a big beneficiary of this new metric that likely will be met on Friday,” Newsom said. “Moving through the weekend into next week you will see more activity, more loosening of the tiers.”
