Democratic Governor Gavin Newsom is desperately trying to save his political career as activists get closer to successfully recalling him from office, which would prompt an election. In recent weeks, political moves by Newsom and Democrats trying to save him – in addition to data points – have shown the recall effort isn't going well for him.
First, Newsom's best attempts to invalidate or void thousands of signatures on the recall petition have been unsuccessful. Organizers of the effort have millions of supporters and more than enough signatures to get the job done.

Thinking wokeness will help save him, Newsom is vowing to appoint a "woman of color" to replace Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein should she retire. At this time, Feinstein has not announced she plans to leave office.
"We have multiple names in mind and the answer is yes," Newsom told MSNBC this week.

And finally, Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren and California Congressman Adam Schiff are doing their best to save Newsom. They're also trying to classifying the process as solely an "extreme right-wing Republican effort," which isn't true.

Now Republicans are wasting time and taxpayers $$ trying to recall him. We need to fight back.
