OAKLAND – An attempt to oust Gov. Gavin Newsom over his epidemic record or a Republican frenzy?
It depends on the campaign you ask.
The California fighters previewed a possible form of the recall campaign during a heated debate on Wednesday, their first major confrontation since the election became a certainty last month.
The recall proponents insisted they represent voters who were indifferent to Newsom’s inconsistent and indiscriminate coronavirus order. Newsom’s defender equates to defending the Democratic governor by defending California’s liberalism from encroaching on Trump’s ideology.
Newsom and his allies have long sought to show the recall as a distraction from conservative-led conservatives, pointing out criticism of the organizers’ comments. Vaccination and Facebook muse about immigrants National Republicans have backed the recall efforts, which are funded by Trump supporters and prominent conservatives such as former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee.
“We can get here because Trump’s Republican-led parties are trying to gain enormous power because they lost power in Washington, D.C.,” Newsom’s top adviser, Ace Smith, said in a statement. During a Sacramento Press Club debate calling on Proud Boys and conspiracy theorist QAnon, “You can choose to be alongside right-wing conspiracy theorists or people with a vision to move the state forward,” he added.
Reclaiming committee chief Anne Dunmore said voters on the political spectrum had signed on because they were ousted by the impression that Newsom did not adhere to restrictions that had made other Californians. The burden of arguing that the campaign would appeal to suburban mothers and frustrated Latino voters, she told POLITICO in February that two-thirds of the signatories were Republicans, compared with 22 percent at Not affiliated with the party and 10 percent of Democrats.
She points to Newsom’s now notorious decision to dine at a lavish restaurant with lobbyists and friends, while urging Californians to stay home and the fact that the children are at home. Many of them return to self-study at their private schools, although most public schools remain closed. And she argued that right-wing supporters did not represent the core of the campaign while saying Newsom’s defenders, including the far-left activists.
“I was able to go and capture the left wing, too,” Dunsmore replied to Smith. “We were all tortured by the people at our party who didn’t represent the mainstream at all.”
As the suffering of the pandemic ended the property recall, the official petition that preceded the coronavirus cited Newsom’s move to protect undocumented immigrants, end executions and raise commercial property taxes. He argued that proponents of the recall wanted to revert to the current pre-California Democrats’ rule by repeatedly calling for the 1994 voting initiative, which sought to cut service to the Democrats.

“You are very mistaken if you believe this is a direct referendum with Gavin Newsom,” Smith said.
But Dunsmore rejected those arguments, saying the recall was a non-partisan referendum in the handling of Newsom’s outbreak. The campaign is likely to highlight the issue as it tries to persuade moderate and no-party voters to like in the dark blue California. Democrats control all offices across the state, dominate the legislature, and outnumber the Republicans registered by nearly five million voters.
“You can keep throwing the partisan rhetoric.” But “It’s really not stuck, and it’s not stuck because it’s not true,” Dunsmore said. “You can keep throwing Trump on it – Trump doesn’t show it. Comments about this recall. “
The district registrar has until late April to determine whether the proponents have collected enough signatures to force an election. But Newsom has treated the campaign as a foregone conclusion, saying the recall is likely to qualify at the time of launching endorsements – and fundraising requests – from Democratic activists like Sen. Berber. Nice Sanders and Voter Supporter Stacey Abrams
Assuming qualified voters are likely to gain weight this fall. The ballot will raise two questions: Should Newsom be recalled and who should replace him? The latest poll has put Newsom in a strong position to survive, with just 40 percent of voters saying they would vote in remembrance of him.
