Recall Newsom Campaign Announces 2.06 Million Signatures Have Been Collected

‘We have cleared another milestone. Politics as usual in California are over as we know it to be.’

The Gavin Newsom Recall Campaign announced Thursday that it gathered 2,060,000 signatures, eclipsing a self-imposed goal of 2 million by the 10th.

According to a press release by the Recall Gavin 2020 campaign, of the now 2 million-plus signatures, 1, 871,573 have been pre-verified internally through a third party, while 1.8 million signatures have already been sent to the registrar of voters offices in 58 counties. By law, only 1.495 million signatures, 12% of the total Gubernatorial vote in 2018, are needed to trigger a recall election. This means that even with a  25% signature rejection rate, far above the current state and campaign third party rates, the  recall will have enough to be on the ballot this year.

“The People of California are speaking loud and clear,” exclaimed Chairman of The California Patriot Coalition – RecallGavin2020 Committee Orrin Heatlie on Thursday. “We have cleared another milestone. Politics as usual in California are over as we know it to be.”

Other campaign organizers shared the same sentiment.

We Did It California! 2,060,000 signatures to RecallGavin2020,” tweeted Senior Advisor and Official Spokesman of the California Patriot Coalition – Recall Gavin Newsom 2020 Committee Randy Economy. “The People are in charge of California not you Gavin Newsom.”

Governor Newsom did not address the new number of signatures gathered on Thursday, adding to the trend of Newsom  rarely responding to questions about the impending recall election. However, in a Wednesday NBC Nightly News interview, the Governor responded to a question about how worried he was about the recall and if he should be held accountable for some of the failures under his administration.

“Well the reality is that process started well before the pandemic,” Newsom told NBC. “This is part of being Governor of California. This is well-defined. And I’m focused on doing my job every single day.”

With the recall campaign gathering over 600,000 signatures in only a month, and other feats of quick, well-mobilized support, even during a pandemic, experts have said that Newsom is likely having at least some focus shifted towards the impending recall.

“It would be odd if he wasn’t,” said former lobbyist Harry Schultz in a Globe interview. “When I lobbied during the Gray Davis recall in 2003, it was much the same. Externally he just said he was focused on his job, especially with a few crises happening in the state at the time, even though we now know he had a lot of resources put forward protecting himself.

“I will grant Newsom has the pandemic, and honestly, this would be difficult for any Governor to manage, but this is still an unexpected election for him with a populace who has been more and more willing in recent years to recall officials. Even Democrats. And who knows what else will happen between now and the election?”

Organizers will have until next week to gather and mail-in remaining signatures. State officials will then have until April 29th to verify them and subsequently add the recall election to the ballot.

  1. By the way, 38% of the signatures were Democrats and No Party Preference according to Randy Economy. So much for this being a right-wing wacko thing, or whatever it is that Newsom, lashing out in nastiness and frustration, has called it.

  2. And lo and behold the COVID restriction tiers are miraculously dropping just in time so the egotistical narcissist Newsom can claim he single-handedly defeated the virus and made it possible for kids to return to school and people to again eat at restaurants. Recall-schmecall, that’s just a temporary inconvenience on his way to the White House. A Newsom presidency would make Jimmy Carter look the most brilliant statesman in history.

  3. Neanderthals
    You’re looking for charisma while the masses look for gruel……
    The only way to save California is fire every school teacher and administrator and recertify the qualified based on demonstrated relevant skills, introduce rock ribbed curriculum management….., allow religion/ethics/morals classes, dump sports, eliminate grade inflation, social promotion, provide ample physical security, demand of parents compulsory …… for at least four hours monthly to labor in school in direct meaningful activities on campus…..and cut admin costs 25% for starters….and get rid of heat and serve unhealthy food.

    What the heck….what a mess.

    1. An entirely new school system is needed. The Orange Country Classical Academy is the model to follow. Give it 10 years and America will totally dominate science and academics. A second renaissance will happen with true education reform but first we must run Everyone currently in the state educational system out.

  5. Precedent has been set: Election “management” is the new norm. Expect it in the Gruesome-Newsom recall “election” . . .

    And we gotta watch the Dominion factor too…
    It’s like kudzu grass across California….
    Get someone who has a clue what they’re doing and that’s NOT Faulconer or Cox!!!

  7. From the AP:
    “Nearly a year after California Gov. Gavin Newsom ordered the nation’s first statewide shutdown because of the coronavirus, masks remain mandated, indoor dining and other activities are significantly limited, and Disneyland remains closed. By contrast, Florida has no statewide restrictions. Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis has prohibited municipalities from fining people who refuse to wear masks. And Disney World has been open since July. Despite their differing approaches, California and Florida have experienced almost identical outcomes in COVID-19 case rates.”
    Its official – the media now acknowledges that mass lockdowns and government meddling did absolutely no thing to affect the virus. The only difference is the toll that Newsom’s arbitrary inconsistent unscientific actions took on the California population.
    Newsom can’t be swept out of office soon enough.
