Amazon says it supports expanding voting rights but it gave $500,000 to lawmakers who oppose those efforts

Jon Cherry/Getty Images; Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images Amazon said in a statement Tuesday that it supports efforts to "protect and expand" voting rights.

The recall could become a Newsom-Trump proxy battle

California’s Republican Party appears bent on making the seemingly inevitable fall recall election against Gov. Gavin Newsom into a symbolic vote on the political revival ex-President Donald Trump so avidly desires. As the days wound down before the March 17 deadline for submitting recall petition signatures, it became clear that three men with links to Trump would likely be the most prominent figures on the recall’s list of prospective Newsom replacements. As in any statewide recall election, v...

Faulconer looks like the main GOP hope for a breakthrough

The last time San Diego elected a moderate Republican mayor with strong potential for appealing to voters statewide, it was Pete Wilson, a onetime state assemblyman who later won election to the U.S. Senate and two terms as governor. Now, while Californians think about possibly recalling Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom, there’s San Diego’s recently termed-out ex-Mayor Kevin Faulconer, who figures to be on both the recall’s list of possible replacement governors and the state’s June 2022 primary bal...

Democracy vs. unity? Local House members differ on why they support, or oppose, impeaching Trump

“Democracy.” Or, from those on the other side of the political aisle, “unity.” Those are the boil-it-down-to-a-word answers when local House members are asked why they favor or oppose impeaching short-timer President Donald Trump for his role in inciting insurrection at the U.S. Capitol. The unprecedented violence that on Jan. 6 led to five deaths and drove House members of both parties into hiding is sparking the equally unprecedented second impeachment of Trump. But the ideological split that ...

Some lessons for Newsom and Democrats from the last recall effort

Gov. Gray Davis made history on Oct. 7, 2003, by becoming only the second governor in the lifetime of the U.S. to be recalled by voters. The only other was a governor of faraway North Dakota in 1921. With Gov. Gavin Newsom now under threat of recall himself, Democrats would do well to remember the successful recall effort against Davis, from which some lessons can be learned. The first is that all recall attempts should be taken seriously. The 2003 recall effort first reared its head in February...
