"She added that "despite the scaremongering from Gavin Newsom, there is no way the California legislature would pass abortion restrictions similar to those in Texas."

So, the logic here seems to be: put an antiabortion crazy yperson in as Governor because he probably can't get the votes to pass the legislation he would want to. Insane.

F**k it, almost 6 a.m. on the West Coast, I'm calling it right now! The vote to toss Newsom will be 79.92567%. Larry Elder will receive 97.4123569% of the vote and be installed in Sacramento by Pope Joan next Thursday. Any deviation from the divinely-sanctioned, preordained outcome signals a deep state fake. FREEDUNG!
Respectfully submitted,
Larry Elder
Putative Grand Cham of Tartary

Elder's website yesterday was broadcasting why Elder lost - and how it was all due to voter fraud. That was yesterday.

He's really getting out ahead of the game by predeclaring his loss to Newsome, not bothering to wait for the election results!

There was also the all-important link: where to donate all your hard-earned money ... you know ... to stop the steal.

The only fraud here is Larry Elder.

For something that is usually Newsworthy - the recall and election of a large state governor - I really do not care about whatever happens in CA. Lol

CA should recall and replace their elder senator and congresspersons. My $0.02 of opinion.

Yep. That's it. Not that he is already lying about fraud.

Repubs can only win in situations where democracy is avoided. Like the electoral college where 2 republican presidents got fewer votes than the democrat.

Or california where a republican with 12% support can take the job from a democrat with 49% support.

Even that's not enough of an advantage for them to stop whining and crying about fictional election fraud.

Yeah you know danni. She hated obama so much.

Idiot.

Liberals are colorblind about elder. We care about the fact that he's a climate change denying, covid denying, fascist trump supporter. Being black or gay or anything wouldnt outweigh the stupid things he's said.

So with the admission that he lost posted on Elder's website, does that mean he's already conceded?

He's a trump republican. He'll never concede. He'll just whine about imaginary fraud for years and get his party to write new rules to enable him to thwart democracy next time.

Seriously, the Democrats NEED to change this recall law, the GQP are ludicrously abusing it, not just in this case, but they're trying to recall a bunch of other elected officials as well. This is nothing more than a power grab, trying to keep the government tied up so that CA doesn't continue to be the economic engine of this country.

Oh, and Elder is a joke, a white supremacist willing to sell his people out for a few bucks, a misogynist who is on the record claiming that women are not as smart as men, a vaccine denier in spite of being vaxxed, a COVID denier, and an all-around lunatic. Gawd help us if he gets elected.

You just described the entire Republican Party.

This recall election is going to result in dramatically increasing Newsom's power and influence. This was a mis-fire by the GOP. Especially if the primary candidate they were going to have run against him is a far right wing Trumpist. They needed to put a moderate, a la Schwarzenegger, if they were serious about winning. I guess that is the saving grace of Trumpists. They are lemmings all to eager to jump off a cliff.

#19 - I heard a political analyst, maybe David Plouffe, about a month ago talking about how the Dems and Governor Newsome didn't want to make the election a referendum on his time in office, because that never goes well, even some supporters could pick nits with his performance. Yes, he's piloted the state through Covid better than DeathSentence and Abbott, and the state has a large surplus, but people will be upset over closing the schools, etc. A campaign needs an opponent in order to draw a contrast between what we believe vs. the crap they'll inflict on you. It is fortunate for Governor Newsome that Elder became the top GQP candidate because he could play a really effective compare/contrast game, Dotard lost to President Biden by 30 points, so Governor Newsome simply paints Elder as a MAGAt, which he obviously is. With all of Elder's insane beliefs about things like vaccines, masks, science, minorities, and that Stephen Goebles Miller should be POTUS one day, he is incredibly out of step with the majority of CA voters. Add to that all the crazy anti-minority crap Elder's said on the radio over the years, and all of a sudden the only people interested in voting for him are the MAGAts, and now Dems are all of a sudden motivated to mark their ballots and send them in.

It's unfortunate, but Dems need to do a better job of being in front of communities of color, especially the Latino community every day, not just when asking for their vote. I thought they learned that lesson in 2020, and 2016, but they're still learning. They need to create permanent community outreach groups in every major city in every state. It's hard work, but the minority community most likely to cross over are the Latinos because their strong Catholic faith makes them susceptible to the anti-choice rhetoric of the GQP. Fortunately for Dems, the GQP is also the party of white supremacy, and most minorities are hip to that.

Looks like California has declared their racism front and center. They vote for a white guy with mama jeans over a black guy. Terrible how racist they are. If only they believed in diversity in a state that has never voted in a person of color.

"Fortunately for Dems, the GQP is also the party of white supremacy, and most minorities are hip to that.

Yet California just proved they are racist in every sense of the definition of the word that Liberals have been using THEMSELVES over and over again in other elections. See, logic really has been removed by Democrats and it's time that changes. Dems have even been able to change the definition of racism in a way where a Republican party can say and prove "We want to treat everyone the same" into meaning "We are racist", and that treating everyone differently based on the color of their skin is actually not racist. As bad as the Rep party is, at least they use logic in their idiocy. Dems have just forsaken all logic in the name of popularity contests.

You are a joke and a moron, and more than likely a white supremacist like the rest of your ilk. The GQP loves minorities like Elder, Diamond and Silk, and Candice Owens who will talk trash about their people for money because they know the GQP eats that crap up and is all too happy to give them a platform and pay for it. The MAGAts hear Elder on the radio talking crap about Treyvon Martin and George Floyd and actually saying that slave owners are the ones who deserve reparations, or Owens talking ish about black folks on her YouTube channel so they can claim that their own views aren't racist because they hear the same BS on some minstrel show on the radio or YouTube.

Trump was as big a loser of this recall election as Elder was.
