California Governor Newsom defeats Republicans recall effort
California Governor Gavin Newsom handily pushed back a Republican campaign to oust him from office on Tuesday, sending a decisive message that voters in the deeply Democratic state supported his policies to fight COVID-19, the immigration and crime. Newsom, who won his first term in 2018 by a landslide, again claimed a resounding victory in the special recall election. With 58% of constituencies declaring Tuesday night, Newsom was ahead by 32 percentage points, with 66% of voters saying he should stay in office and 34% saying he should be impeached.
