The voters in the state of California will be judging whether Gavin Newsom needs to be recalled in an election on the 14th of September. This was reported by the state lieutenant governor last Thursday- which sets up a 10-week window for the Governor of the Democratic party where he would be able to justify his office. Eleni Kounalakis, the incumbent Lt. Governor, made this announcement after the Secretary of State Shirley Weber made the recall effort.
Gavin Newsom Should Find Himself Recalled On The 14th of September
Critics of Governor Gavin Newsom previously met the threshold for the recall election of the state back in April- which followed quite a sprawling effort to find signatures in every single county. Unsurprisingly, this was backed by several strategists from the Republican party.
As far as news reports go, the unrest was infused with the anger that came about due to the restrictions that the Governor had put up in order to curb the spread of Covid-19 the previous year. This was a contingency plan that had to be pushed for due to the alarming increase in the number of cases in the state during the last couple of months of 2020.
Gavin Newsom and his team have already framed the entire recall as an effort by the Republican supporters- which has been further alleviated by the Governor signing the law the previous week to speed up the process. This move has been objected to by several critics as an attempt to push an election that has quite a plethora of challenges.
The voters of the state would be asked a couple of questions in September- when the election will take place- and they would have to answer yes or no on recalling the incumbent Governor Gavin Newsom. Incidentally, the governor in question was elected back in 2018 with almost 62% of the total number of votes.
