Gavin Newson defeated a Republican-led recall that threatened California’s Democratic agenda

After months of uncertainty, Governor Gavin Newsom easily defeated the recall on Tuesday, a victory for the Democrats who warned that California’s progressive agenda was precarious.

According to statistics of votes sent by the Secretary of State in the weeks leading up to Tuesday, slightly more than two-thirds of voters refused to be removed. The final count may take several days.

Newsom served as conductor in all Bay Area counties and Los Angeles, Orange, San Diego, and Riverside counties.

The second question for voters-who should replace Newsom? -No longer related to recall failures, Los Angeles-based conservative radio host Larry Elder has more than 40% support, far ahead of the other 45 candidates, including YouTuber Democrats Kevin Pafrat and Many Republicans, including former San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulkner.

The governor was optimistic all day, thanking the campaign volunteers in the San Francisco Union Hall in the afternoon, and then returning to Sacramento, where he gave a touching speech after the major network announced the election, thanking millions of Californians.

“We say yes to diversity, we say yes to tolerance, we say yes to pluralism,” Newsom said, tears in his eyes. “We agree with all the things that we cherish as Californians.”

On Tuesday, September 14, 2021, on the last day of the recall election, California Governor Gavin Newsom, his wife Jennifer Siebel Newsom, and his wife Jennifer Siebel Newsom held at the IBEW Union Hall (Carlmunden/Bay Area) in San Francisco, California Campaign News Group)

When Newsom mentioned his own four young children, he regretted the differences in the current political climate and expressed his concern about young people growing up in an increasingly isolated and isolated world.

“Democracy is not football,” he said. “Don’t throw it away. It’s more like an antique vase. You can put it down and divide it into a million pieces. This is what we are doing.”

Newsom’s victory came after a arduous campaign that attracted many well-known Democrats, including President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris, to California to run for governor. Newsom raised more than $70 million and issued terrible warnings about the stakes in the election to the airwaves and social media — not only here, but all over the country.

Initially considered a long-term effort, the recall campaign was driven by voters tired of pandemic restrictions and Newson’s now infamous French laundry dinner, and summer polls showed that the game was almost deadly. Democrats in the state surpassed Republicans by nearly 2-1, but early polls showed that Republican voters were more enthusiastic about the late summer elections, which intensified the Democrats’ concerns that Newsom might become the second in California’s history ahead of schedule. The governor who stepped down.

But with Elder (the last-minute increase in the list of candidates who hope to succeed the governor) wins in the polls, Newsom and his Democratic allies regard Elder as the perfect foil for Trump, emphasizing his opposition Wearing a mask, minimum wage, and Roe v. Wade. With the reopening of businesses and schools, the Republican Party’s refusal to support candidates and no well-known Democratic challengers, Newsom seems to have the upper hand.

Melissa Michelson, a professor of political science at Menlo College, said: “I think the fact that Larry Elder is at the top of the Republican Party really helped Gavin Newsom and hurt the recall.” “He is easier to associate with Trump, he is more extreme in certain positions, and is far from the median attitude of California voters,” compared to more traditional Republican candidates like Faulkner.

Although the extent of any victory will not be known for a period of time, Newsom’s strong performance “may discourage potential challengers in 2022 and may put him on the national stage, if he actually has national ambitions, especially Yes, obviously the president,” said Darry Sragow, a longtime Democratic strategist.

Putting the election in the rearview mirror will also allow Newsom time to sign bills on everything from increasing housing density to police reform, and adopting policies that may alienate some of the opponents of the recall-including in the vaccination passport and Extensive authorizations and extensive authorizations are on tiptoe to fight the pandemic more actively.

“I expect he will take further steps to compulsory vaccination and take a more proactive stance on issues that may not be so popular in California,” Michaelson said. “This gave him political capital to spend money. In a sense, the request of California voters is that we want Newsom to continue this agenda and make California a progressive leader among the states.”

An export poll conducted by Edison Research found that one-third of voters said the pandemic was the biggest problem in the state, followed by about one-fifth who pointed to homelessness, and one-sixth pointed to economic and economic issues. Wildfire is the biggest problem. Approximately 45% of voters surveyed said that Newsom’s pandemic policy was correct, while one-third said they were too strict.

As for Republicans, failure will force the minority party to re-evaluate its strategy of rapidly becoming more diverse and free in California.

Newsom is only the second California governor to face a vote to remove, but unlike in 2003, when Republican Arnold Schwarzenegger ousted Democratic Governor Gray Davis, Republicans accounted for about 35% of registered voters. Today Republicans make up only 24% of voters. California voters.

“After every election in the past ten years, California Republicans have faced this identity crisis and the challenge:’If we are seen as unfriendly to a growing population, can we become more diverse To play a role in the state of transformation?’,” said Thad Kuther, a professor of political science at the University of California, San Diego.

However, he said that despite the echoes of Donald Trump and his exaggerated remarks in the recall campaign, the Republicans did not ultimately convey the typical anti-immigration message, but instead focused their attention on California as a nanny state and homelessness. On issues such as return and housing.

“The positive signal that the Republicans can get from this is that they are able to motivate their foundations and find centrist-related issues, and put ten years of panic on the Democrats for at least a period of time, instead of basing their demands on opposing immigration. ,” Kuther said. “That’s new.”

Jack Pittney, a former Republican strategist, said that although the Republicans succeeded in forcing Democratic governors into an unlikely odd-year referendum, their attempt to complete the job felt like a train wreck.

“The bizarre California recall strategy,” a professor of political science at Claremont McKenna College wrote on Twitter. “1. Shock athletes by running extremist radio to mobilize negative votes. 2. Suppress yes votes by telling supporters that the election was rigged, so their votes are irrelevant. Heckuva’s work, Republican Party.”

Pitney is not the only one to criticize. Other California Republicans privately questioned the way the state Republicans handled the recall. Some pointed to Elder’s unfounded comments about election manipulation during the campaign-and his campaign’s publication prior to the polls even hinted that the recall failed. Website-vote as a dissuasion for dismissing supporters.

On Tuesday night, Elder gave in and told supporters, “Let us remain graceful in failure.”

“We may lose this battle,” he said, “but we will win this war.”

Nevertheless, even at around 8:30 in the evening the main media said the game was beneficial to Newsom, some recall supporters thought it was too early and pointed out that many of their core voters voted in person on Tuesday, but no statistics have been made yet. , And Democrats are more likely to mail ballots in advance.

“Without Gavin Newson-now is not the time for you to celebrate,” Calde Mayo, the head of the California organization that supports the recall, said in a statement.

During Newsom’s stay in San Francisco and in his thank you speech, he once again fought back the election fraud allegations as “pottery.”

“These people are actually undermining our democracy and undermining our trust in institutions,” Newsom continued. “People like me come and go, we pay a dime for a dozen… this has to do with our organization.”
