After casting his recall ballot at the California Museum in downtown Sacramento, Newsom said the former president's rhetoric, as well as Elder's plans to challenge the election results, are damaging to democracy.

"There is a thread within the Republican Party that, if they don't get what they want, they are willing to assault the core tenets of an election in ways that have far reaching consequences," Newsom told The Bee in an interview. "It's very, very damaging and baseless, absolutely baseless."

On Tuesday, Trump falsely claimed that the election is likely "rigged" for Newsom, a Democrat, during an appearance on Newsmax.

"It's probably rigged," Trump said, repeating complaints about mail-in ballots he raised in 2020. "The ballots... are mail-in ballots... I guess you even have a case where you can make your own ballot. When that happens, nobody's gonna win except these Democrats. The one thing they are good at is rigging elections, so I predict it's a rigged election."

Polling for much of August showed the election was surprisingly close, largely because many Democrats weren't closely following the election and weren't counted by pollsters as likely voters, but recent polling has found Newsom has taken a commanding lead.

The rhetoric from Trump and Elder's campaign echoes the claims of voter fraud the former president and his supporters raised after he lost the 2020 election.

"It's a continuation of Trumpism," Newsom said. "It has real profound impact on the confidence people have in their democracy, and it's very damaging."

That short article, by a military spouse, was pretty obviously written for you, Major B.

Would be a shame if you were too close-minded to read it.

Aw, well

- they earned it.

Most well-known billionaires admit that they would not be so without an extraordinary amount of luck. Because as I said, capitalism isn't a meritocracy which word you can look up.

Bezos, Zuckerberg, and Buffet talk about it here...

- not my problem

Yes, we know. Other people don't matter to Randian Objectivists.

And you obviously love the money... it makes you feel better than other people. That's not an assumption, it's a matter of reading what you say.
