Newsom introduced his anti-recall campaign after the impending deadline on Wednesday asking for the supporters of recall to submit their petitions for a recall in 58 counties. Newsom made a tweet on Monday informing that he intends to remain strong and focused despite the divisive Republican politics. He will fight against it owing to the reason that a lot is at stake on the recall campaign.
The recall supporters have submitted whopping signatures of 2,117,730 on Wednesday. This number greatly exceeds the minimum number of signatures required for a recall.
Newsom himself accepted the fact that the recall might qualify and eventually take place. This recall might emerge as the best opportunity for the Republicans to reclaim their governorship seat that is firmly in control of the Democrats.
The election chief of the state has been assigned time till the 9th of May to notify the counties whether the election is fit or not.
