California's recall election revealed dwindling Democratic support among Latino voters, but experts are mixed on what that means for future elections

Gov. Gavin Newsom losing Riverside County in recall election

Fighting to save his job, Gov. Gavin Newsom may have won the war, but he’s losing the battle in one of California’s largest counties. Results from the Sept. 14 gubernatorial recall election posted Wednesday night, Sept. 22 showed 50.4% of those who cast recall ballots in Riverside County voting to remove Newsom. About 49.6% voted to keep him. If the results hold, Riverside County, population 2.5 million, would be the largest county — and the only one in Southern California — to support the recal...

Reflections on my failed gubernatorial candidacy

I want to thank the distributor of my articles, Creators Syndicate, for allowing me to take eight weeks off from writing my weekly column so I could campaign to recall and replace the governor of California. I also want to thank my readers for their patience and willingness to let me pursue that adventure. The recall required 50% plus one of the votes be cast in favor of the recall. To replace required only that the replacement candidate receive more votes than any other candidate. Right now, ba...

Bonin anti-recall campaign says video with opponent’s home address was error

The anti-recall campaign for Councilman Mike Bonin said Monday, Sept. 20, that it did not intend to display the addresses of the recalls’ organizers in a campaign video meant to show ties between the recall campaign and right-wing operatives. On Sept. 10, the anti-recall committee’s Twitter account “Stop the Right-Wing Recalls” published a video that displayed a publicly available document that included the addresses of Chad Morgan, the recall campaign’s authorized representative, and Katrina Sc...

Stop with the mini-Trumps, California Republicans

The neighborhood crank had taken down the big bouquet of Recall Newsom and Elect Larry Elder signs by Thursday morning, a bike tour showed. Not just lawn signs, understand. His garage roof had sprouted half a dozen of the  placards, all craftily arranged and lit up at night, like Santa’s sleigh in a Christmas display. The same fellow had treated us to a similar barrage of Trump agit-prop back when that was a thing. Given the swiftness with which he removes the offending nonsense after sensible p...

The words Trump couldn't bring himself to say

When Larry Elder conceded defeat this week in his bid to unseat California Governor Gavin Newsom, he sounded a different note than Richard Nixon did when he lost in his campaign for the same job in 1962. Still, at least he and Nixon admitted they were beaten -- something former President Donald Trump could never bring himself to do after the 2020 election.

After recall fail, GOP squabbles over the future

Now that the gubernatorial recall is over and Gavin Newsom survived the attempt by overwhelming numbers, the recriminations and soul-searching among recall backers have begun. The effort to oust the governor always was a longshot, but the magnitude of the failure has left Republicans unsure about a constructive way forward. As news analyses have spotlighted, Tuesday’s defeat only exacerbated the recurring divisions between the California GOP’s moderate establishment wing and its conservative bas...

Analysis: Why California's results are in line with the GOP taking the House in 2022

Democrats crushed Republicans in Tuesday's California recall election of Gov. Gavin Newsom. Newsom's overwhelming victory left little doubt that California is a deeply blue state, and a Donald Trump-endorsed candidate like Larry Elder doesn't come close to fitting the bill for the type of Republican the GOP needs to run in order to win in the Golden State.

Elder was wrong to hype election fraud

  “We cannot have an evidence-based party if we are [lying to] people in advance that the election was stolen, when it clearly was not,” said former California Republican Party Chairman Ron Nehring.   We couldn’t have said it better ourselves. Nehring, speaking at a Sacramento Press Club event on Wednesday, was responding largely to preemptive claims of voter fraud made by recall gubernatorial candidate Larry Elder and others in advance of the election.   Days prior to the election, Elder had la...

Republicans ignore hard recall lessons at own peril

SACRAMENTO – On the eve of California’s second-ever gubernatorial recall election, polls showed dire news for those hoping to bounce Gavin Newsom from office and replace him with someone with a more conservative mindset. Despite my issues with the governor, I was far more disappointed with the statements from recall supporters than from the polling data. Before voting was even finished, Republican “leaders promoted unsubstantiated claims that the race was rigged or compromised by misconduct,” AP...

Some lessons for the right in California

Gov. Gavin Newsom will keep his job, at least for another year. On Tuesday, California voters decisively rejected the attempt to recall the governor. Given the scale of the victory — as of this writing, 63.9% voted down the recall — it’s clear that Californians not only didn’t buy the argument that Newsom was so bad he needed to go right now; they definitely weren’t persuaded by a GOP with a greatly tarnished brand in California. In context, the recall was always a long shot. Back in February, t...

Non-recall ends where it began, with Newsom as governor and lots of questions

California’s non-recall is over and the state’s political leadership remains exactly as it was when most of us thought French Laundry was a fancy restaurant or an odd washing chore, not the scene of a political incident. Gov. Gavin Newsom is still governor. Radio host Larry Elder is still a radio host, (though one with political ambition). California is still a huge, flawed and perpetually interesting state. And several political questions still need to be answered. Would anybody want to do thi...

‘Study Newsom’s playbook’: what Democrats – and Republicans – can learn from California’s recall

Governor’s strategy could help Democrats in some states but also offers them a warningIt was anger over Gavin Newsom’s pandemic restrictions that ultimately put a recall vote on the ballot. But the California governor doubled down, placing his coronavirus policies at the heart of his campaign and casting his leading opponent – the anti-mask, anti-vaccine rightwing radio host Larry Elder – as a dangerous proxy for Trump.That winning strategy could have national implications for both Democrats and...

N. Korea says recent test was of a rail-based weapon

By Josh Smith | Reuters SEOUL – The missiles fired by North Korea on Wednesday were a test of a new “railway-borne missile system” designed as a potential counter-strike to any forces that threaten the country, state news agency KCNA reported on Thursday. The missiles flew 497 miles before striking a target in the sea off North Korea’s east coast, KCNA said. On Wednesday, South Korean and Japanese authorities said they had detected the launch of two ballistic missiles from North Korea, just days...

Democrats To Push For Reformed California Recall System

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP/CBS13) — A day after Gov. Gavin Newsom defeated an effort to remove him from office, California Democrats said on Wednesday they will push for changes to make it more difficult to challenge a sitting governor Those reforms could include increasing the number of signatures needed to force a recall election, raising the standard to require wrongdoing on the part of the officeholder and changing the process that could permit someone with a small percentage of votes to replace...

Does The Recall Result Tell Us Anything About the Rest of Country?

It’s hard to make too much of the California recall. It is after all one of the most Democratic states in the union. The moribund state Republican party coalesced around a standard bearer whose top policy position may have been credible reports he pulled a gun on his fiance during a fight. The only conceivable way Larry Elder could have become governor is with very low turnout and a majority of voters deciding narrowly to recall Newsom and allowing Elder to slip through with like 35% of the vote...

Newsom scores big recall win. What now?

Well, that was one for the history books. In the space of two decades, California voters recalled one Democratic governor and refused to recall another. Voting had scarcely ended at 8 p.m. Tuesday before major news organizations declared that Gov. Gavin Newsom had handily turned back what had once appeared to be a viable drive to oust him from office. “We are enjoying an overwhelming ‘no’ vote tonight here in the state of California,” Newsom told cheering supporters in Sacramento. “But ‘no’ was ...

‘This Recall Is Close’: Newsom’s Dire Warning Helped Turn California Recall Election Tide

SACRAMENTO (AP/CBS13) – An ominous four-word message issued by California Gov. Gavin Newsom’s campaign on the morning of Aug. 5 served as the shock Democrats needed to take seriously a recall election that could remove him from office: “This recall is close.” Newsom’s warning in a fundraising email came just days after a poll indicated the once-popular Democratic governor who was elected in a 2018 landslide was facing the unthinkable prospect of losing his job in a state that hadn’t elected a Re...
