Another Recall Petition Against Newsom Approved for Signatures – American Faith

A new recall petition against California Governor Gavin Newsom (D) has been approved for signature collection.

Newsome defeated another recall campaign in 2021.

California’s Secretary of State, Shirley Weber, wrote in a Tuesday memo that the “Secretary of State’s office approved petitions for circulation for the recall of Governor Gavin Newsom.”

“The minimum number of valid signatures required to qualify the recall is 1,311,963 (12% of the 10,933,018 votes cast in the last election for Governor),” the memo noted.

Signatures must be submitted to the Secretary of State’s office by September 3 and be from at least five different counties.

In February, “Rescue California” announced that it planned to file a notice of intent to recall the Democratic governor.

“Gavin Newsom has abandoned the state to advance his Presidential ambitions, leaving behind a $73 billion budget deficit and a public safety, immigration, and education crisis,” Rescue California campaign director Anne Dunsmore said. “Over 400 Californians of every political persuasion and from all walks of life, have joined together to serve as official proponents of this Recall.”
