Currently, the unpopular Democrat Governor of California, Gavin Newsom, is facing a massive recall election. Newsom has become enormously unpopular due to his harsh lockdown measures, particularly when he has publicly disregarded his own orders.
Nevertheless, Senator Elizabeth Warren, a Democrat from Massachusetts, is meddling in the recall election through openly supporting Newsom in a new ad.
Astonishingly, Warren blames Trump for the current recall election in California, arguing that the nation has allegedly “seen Trump Republicans across the country attacking election results and the right to vote.”
“Now they’re coming to grab power in California,” Warren brayed, adding that the “Trump Republicans” were presumably costing taxpayers millions while allegedly abusing the gubernatorial recall process.
“Stop the Republican recall,” Warren shrieked, demanding that voters vote “No” in order to purportedly protect “democracy” and the state of California.

Senator Warren has been a member of the U.S. Senate for more than 8 years, or since January 2013. In addition, she also launched a bid for the Democrat presidential nomination during the 2020 election cycle, though she eventually dropped out.
Earlier in the spring, Warren proclaimed that “extreme right-wing Republicans” are responsible for the recall effort against Newsom.
In a naked partisan power grab, extreme right-wing Republicans are trying to recall @GavinNewsom. Why? Because he dares to listen to scientists and fights to put power in the hands of working people. Let’s have Gavin’s back:https://t.co/7erlPIXytM

On the ballot, which is set to be voted on September 14, voters will respond “yes” or “no” to whether or not Newsom should be formally recalled. In addition, they will also have several different candidates to choose from to serve as governor instead, if they opt to recall Newsom.
Dozens of candidates are presently attempting to replace Newsom in the upcoming election.
These candidates include Caitlyn Jenner, a transgender individual who won the gold medal at the 1976 Olympics as a biological male, as well as Larry Elder, who is a conservative talk show host.
Should the majority of California voters opt to remove Newsom, the alternative candidate who receives the most votes will become the governor of the state instead.
In addition, Newsom will also be removed more than a year in advance of his term’s current end date, and his removal would also mark the state’s second successful gubernatorial recall election.
Back in 2003, the then-Governor of California, Gray Davis, also a Democrat, was recalled successfully by voters. He was then replaced by Arnold Schwarzenegger, a Republican.
However, a GOP candidate has not won a state-level office in the state of California since 2006, when Schwarzenegger won the 2006 election for governor.
