Preliminary voting results revealed that an attempt to recall Governor Gavin Newsom failed Tuesday, allowing him to finish off his term.
On Tuesday, Californians, including those living in the Santa Clarita Valley, had an opportunity to vote to have Newsom removed from office.
However, a majority of voters said no to the recall, allowing Newsom to keep his position, according to unofficial election results.
Tonight, California voted NO on the recall and YES to…
The minimum wage.
We rejected cynicism and bigotry and chose hope and progress.
Thank you, California.
— Gavin Newsom (@GavinNewsom) September 15, 2021
If Newsom were to be recalled, Republican candidate Larry Elder would have replaced him due to receiving the most votes for who Californians wanted to replace Newsom, with 40.74% of the replacement vote in L.A. County as of 9:45 p.m. Tuesday.
“This outcome was only made possible through the efforts of community members across the state and here in our own valley who worked tirelessly to defend the Governor’s office from being taken over by a far-right extremist,” said Andrew Taban, Chair of the Santa Clarita Valley Democrats. “Still, our work is far from over, and we look forward to continuing to work with the Governor’s office to help our communities survive this pandemic and thrive long after.”
According to preliminary election results as of (insert time here), approximately one-third of California voters were unhappy with how Newsom is running the state, especially during the coronavirus pandemic, requiring mask mandates and some of the strictest COVID-19 guidelines in the nation.Do you have a news tip?
