Californians overwhelmingly rejected a Republican-led recall effort in opposition to Democratic Governor Gavin Newsom on Tuesday that value near $300 million in taxpayer funds.
The failed recall was seen as a battle in opposition to the far proper and a referendum on a number of key points forward of the 2022 midterms, together with the pandemic, immigrant rights, the local weather disaster and the associated unhoused disaster.
California voters forged their ballots within the recall as a result of “as attention started being focused nationally on this election, people started realizing what was at stake,” says Sasha Abramsky, “Left Coast” correspondent for The Nation.
“There was this real risk that California could sort of almost accidentally stumble into a far-right governorship,” Abramsky says.
