Gavin Newsom is only the second governor in the history of California to face a recall election and is likely to be the first to survive one.
All eyes are on the Golden State ahead of Tuesday’s recall election. The Democratic governor has spent months campaigning against the recall effort, which he has characterized as a radical GOP power grab that has left his career and California’s future hanging in the balance.
With his more than $70 million war chest, Newsom has flooded airwaves and digital spaces with anti-recall ads featuring prominent Democrats such as Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren and former President Barack Obama.
The governor has also made numerous campaign stops across the state to directly reach Democratic voters, and is even set to campaign alongside President Joe Biden in Long Beach late Monday.
