It’s official: Gavin Newsom is facing a recall election

Californians hoping to remove Democratic Governor Gavin Newsom from office have met the state’s minimum number of valid signatures to push a recall election forward this fall.

Newsom has already formed a political offensive to fight the recall, saying the effort is a partisan attempt by Republicans aligned with former President Donald Trump to wrest power from his majority-Democratic state.

Governor Gavin Newsom responded to the recall election with a video claiming the recall is distracting everyone from fighting the coronavirus pandemic.

Listen to John Rothmann explain what California residents should expect in the coming months.
