“School choice means the money follows the child rather than the other way around,” Larry Elder, candidate for Governor in the Recall Election of Gov. Gavin Newsom explains in a campaign video. “A quality education is the first step into the middle class,” he explains.

Press play to hear a narrated version of this story, presented by AudioHopper.

Aligned with Elder on school choice, former California State Senate Leader Gloria Romero just announced her endorsement of Elder.

“Our public schools need big change. I’m Gloria Romero; I was the majority leader of Democrats in the state senate.  I believe in charter schools and and school choice. So does Larry Elder — but not Gavin Newsom. He shut our public schools while he sent his kids to private schools,” Romero says in a new campaign video ad for Elder’s campaign team.

“Yes. I’m a Democrat. But the recall of Newsom is not about political party.  It’s about Newsom. Larry Elder for governor,” Romero says.

Senator Gloria Romero (D-Los Angeles) is the former California Senate Majority Leader, former Senator and Assemblywoman. As chairwoman of the Senate Education Committee, Romero authored and guided to passage a fiercely contestedparent trigger” law which allows a majority of parents in a failing school to vote on a method to restructure the school.

Romero is also a contributor to California Globe.

    1. Partisan whack you must be…
      Because there’s no D behind his name, because he has, for almost forty years now, spoken the same conservative values and Truth about both the African American condition(because of liberal POLICY), and the facts regarding much of what you Leftists have squandered…, you call him a lunatic.

      Partisan hack. Divisiion in America is because of whipwire’s like you..

      1. Can’t kick her out if she’s retired like Villaraigosa. After she was in the state legislature she ran for school board thinking she can put school choice but unfortunately she came in third. After she pretty much retired.

  1. So fun watching him fall! Hopefully Kamala will be here Friday to campaign for him while people are tortured and killed in Afghanistan that will definitely seal his fate!

  2. A VOTE FOR ANY REPUBLICAN AT THIS POINT, IS A VOTE FOR TRUMP. SO GLORIA ROMERO’S VOTE FOR ELDER IS A VOTE FOR TRUMP, AND WILL SERVE TO BOLSTER TRUMP’S EFFORTS FOR RE-ELECTION AS PRESIDENT; AND POWER OVER THE NEXT (IF ELECTED) OFFICE OF GOVERNOR OF CALIFORNIA (ELDER IF ELECTED). I ACTUALLY THINK MS ROMERO MEANS WELL, BUT SHE NEEDS TO BEAR IN MIND, TRUMP IS OUR FIRST OBVIOUS WANNA-BE DICTATOR, AND AUTOCRAT, FOR OUR UNITED STATES OF AMERICA – AND NOT SHY ABOUT IT. AT THIS VERY TIME IN HISTORY, A VOTE FOR ANY REPUBLICAN, IS A VOTE FOR TRUMP TOWARDS BEING RE-ELECTED PRESIDENT. THEN THERE WILL BE A QUIET SECOND SUCCESSFUL INSURRECTION AT OUR NATION’S WASHINGTON CAPITOL AND TRUMP WILL BE AMERICA’S FIRST AUTOCRAT / DICTATOR. HE WILL BE ON TV EVERY MORNING SIGNING AWAY ALL THE PEOPLE’S RIGHTS HE’S ABLE TO, SURROUNDED BY THE HIS ADMIRERS. I HOPE SHE AND OTHERS WILL THINK CAREFULLY. TRUMP IS THE REPUBLICAN PARTY AT THIS TIME.

  3. Thank you Ms. Romero for standing up for you own personal ideals and not being lead by the nose by the democratic bull ring! Good for you to stand up to the robotic expectant herd that want to crucify you for daring to think and speak you mind! If more people would open their minds, remove all hate and listen to each other(what they are really saying) we can all coexist without any entity overtly/covertly controlling our lives. Let’s keep it real. Give back the choices that were taken from parents. Ensure our rights under our Constitution. Take care of our homeless and VETS. Recall Newsome and oppose all who suppress and try to control. Rules are good, penalties are good but must be reasonable. Support the enforcement of fair law’s and support victims of crimes. Thank you for being an individual. Have a great Labor day. Please don’t forget our families in Afghanistan.

  4. Disappointed by her decision to support Larry Elder. He would be a terrible choice for governor. Stunned that she’s critical of Newsom’s choice to send his children to private school. She did the same, her child attended private school. Newsom has kept our children safe.
