The majority of California residents are more than unhappy with how Governer Gavin Newsom handled the COVID19 pandemic.
The effort to recall Governor Gavin Newsom has submitted enough verified signatures to qualify for a recall election, according to an update from the California Secretary of State's office. The latest update says 1,626,042 signatures have been submitted and verified. To qualify, they needed 1.495 million signatures.
Governor Newsom tweeted the following in response to the count, "This Republican recall threatens our values and seeks to undo the important progress we've made – from fighting COVID, to helping struggling families, protecting our environment, and passing commonsense gun violence solutions."
Counties still have until April 29 to submit the rest of the verified signatures and that will then be followed by a 30-day period where people can withdraw their signatures.
