Millions of Californians are now casting their votes as Golden State residents decide whether to keep Gavin Newsom as their Governor or remove him from Sacramento.
The polls close at 8PM Pacific Time Tuesday with results expected to come-in overnight.
Latest polls show Newsom gaining ground against 40 Republican Challengers led by Conservative commentator Larry Elder.
Embattled California Governor Gavin Newsom and his team “don’t see a scenario” where the Democrat loses Tuesday’s recall election, projecting confidence despite close poll numbers against his Republican challengers.
“I don’t see a scenario where we’re not talking about a victory for the governor and a complete rejection of this appalling partisan power grab,” said Newsom strategist Sean Clegg. “I think what we’re seeing in our projections in the early vote is we’re performing so well we might reach a point where there’s not enough Republican vote left on the table for them to overtake us. We’ll let you know when we reach that.”
President Biden campaigned with Newsom on the eve of the election, saying the “eyes of the nation” are on the Golden State.

“You either keep Gavin Newsom as your Governor, or you’ll get Donald Trump. It’s not a joke!” claimed the President.
“The eyes of the nation are on California because the decision you’re going to make isn’t just going to have a huge impact on California, it’s going to reverberate around the nation, and quite frankly — not a joke — around the world,” Biden said.
“All of you know that last year I got to run against the real Donald Trump,” Biden said. “Well, this year the leading Republican running for governor is a closest thing to a Trump clone that I’ve ever seen in your state.”

BIDEN in NEW HAMPSHIRE: ‘What You Do Here in Iowa is Going to Set the Tone’
Former Vice President Joe Biden left audience members scratching their heads in New Hampshire over the weekend; confusing the northeast state for Iowa -approximately 1,000 miles away.
“The primary race for the United States presidency… You have an incredible obligation, not to me at all, but to yourselves. What you do here in Iowa […] is going to set the tone,” said Biden before correcting himself.
“New Hampshire, the primary in New Hampshire,” he added.

Biden made a similar mistake earlier this year; confusing New Hampshire for the neighboring state of Vermont.
“I’ve been here a number of times…I love this place. Look, what’s not to like about Vermont in terms of the beauty of it?” Biden told reporters.

At some point, the media is going to have to stop calling this "gaffes" https://t.co/Dhno1WN2rU

BIDEN in PENN: ‘Rapid Results Testing Contract, Contract Contact Tracing, Widely Available Personnel!’
Former Vice President Joe Biden continued his gaffe-filled campaign at a speaking event in Pennsylvania Wednesday; bizarrely stating the country needs “contract tracing capacity widely available personnel.”
“Here comes the rapid results testing Contract Contract Contact Tracing Capacity, widely available personnel protective equipment,” said Biden.
