California Governor Newsom Faces a Recall and a Libertarian Might Win

•, By Mish

Recall of Governor Gavin Newsom 

A recall vote of California Governor Gavin Newsom is in progress. It started over Newsom's handing of Covid and most figured it was doomed.

But in April 2021, the secretary of state certified that the effort had enough signatures to trigger a vote.

The vote is on September 14. The vote has two parts: 

Part one is a yes-or-no question: Shall the officeholder be recalled? Part two offers a list of successor candidates—46 have qualified in this recall. Each voter chooses one of them, and if the recall is successful, whichever candidate earns a plurality fills out the term.

Larry Elder did not enter the race until July 12, but suddenly he is either leading or in second place depending on what poll one believes.

Who Is Larry Elder?

The Sacramento Bee reports Right-Wing Talk Show Host is Leading the California Recall Election Polls.

From minimum wage to Black Lives Matter, Donald Trump to the War on Drugs, Elder has taken a number of far-right conservative positions over the years. 

The article reads like a hit piece on Trump. He is actually a Libertarian, not right-wing.
