Let the games begin...
Gavin Newsom has formally launched his anti-recall campaign and is claiming this recall effort is a Republican power grab.
He sent out this email to democrats today:
And let's call it what it is: it's a partisan, Republican recall -- backed by the RNC, anti-mask and anti-vax extremists, and pro-Trump forces who want to overturn the last election and have opposed much of what we have done to fight the pandemic.
In a tweet, Newsom said, “I won’t be distracted by this partisan, Republican recall — but I will fight it. There is too much at stake.”
Newsom has lined up support from state and national Democrats to defeat the campaign against him. The committee started the drive with an advertisement attacking the recall effort as a Republican power grab.
With Newsom finally going on offense, let's see if the recall effort will continue nudge him to keep opening up the state.
