Assemblyman Kevin Kiley Enters California Recall Election to Replace Gov. Newsom

‘The Newsom recall is the greatest citizens movement in California history’

By Katy Grimes, July 6, 2021 3:37 pm

California Republican Assemblyman Kevin Kiley Tuesday made it official: He’s running to replace Gov. Gavin Newsom as the Governor of California.

The Globe had a chance to speak with Kiley, who indicated recently he was seriously considering entering the recall election of Gov. Newsom. The Globe asked Kiley what made him decide to enter the recall election now.

“I want to see Gavin Newsom recalled,” Kiley said. “I’ve said all along that I am willing to play any roll I can.” Kiley said that he never imagined it would lead to him deciding to run for governor. But he heard from tens of thousands of Californians who told him he needed to run and replace Newsom for governor.

Kiley said “Over the next 70 days, I’ll fight in every way I can to get our movement across the finish line. We’re in it to win.”

Until recently, the election date was a moving target. By design.

As the Globe reported July 1st, Kiley (R-Granite Bay) condemned the dubious bill changing the date of the Recall Election against Gov. Gavin Newsom last week, when a Democrat colleague stood up and challenged Kiley’s critique of the governor.

As for the bill, Kiley said in a recent interview SB 152 may be the most corrupt bill he’s seen in his time in the Legislature. As Kiley explained, the Legislature itself violated international human rights standards by changing rules in the middle of an election.

Then, in the dead of night, Newsom signed SB 152, changing the timing and date of his own Recall in an attempt to suppress votes against him. “It’s possibly the most corrupt act in California history,” Kiley said.

“Every child knows the word for changing the rules in the middle of the game,” Kiley added. “It’s cheating. And every California voter should know: Gavin Newsom is cheating in the Recall, with this Legislature as his willing accomplice.”

Now that the date has been set, it’s going to get really interesting in California.

Others are taking notice of Kiley’s announcement as well:

Recently Kiley exposed that in elaborate taxpayer-funded events, “Gov. Gavin Newsom played a game-show host with a ‘Big Spin’ lottery wheel, posed with minions and smurfs, rode a roller coaster, compared himself to Oprah for ‘giving away money,’ and juggled like an actual clown.”

Kiley referred to the Newsom events as “a stunning escalation in Newsom’s war on reality.”

But Kiley was critical of Newsom creating the diversion away from California’s reality: the homeless epidemic, and the trash, and decay endemic on the streets. “Newsom even went so far as to declare that his lockdowns somehow helped the economy,” Kiley said. “Fact checkers are roasting him for this insane claim.”

“If our next Governor has a mission statement, it should be Back to Basics: do the things government is supposed to do, do them well, and do nothing else,” Kiley said. “Because our current Governor is promising exactly the opposite.”

Kiley added, “A new anti-Recall ad ends with the six most ominous words I’ve ever heard: ‘Governor Newsom is just getting started.’”

Kiley’s promising six much more encouraging words as an alternative on September 15th: “People of California Reclaim Their Government.”

  1. What does anybody really know about Kevin Kiley? I supported him financially for the past year and am for the Recall Newsom movement, which I also support financially, but until I read Kevin Kiley’s book, “Recall Newsom,” I knew very little about Kevin Kiley, and I just had the feeling of his being a nice, smiling democrat with a small “d” (no pun intended) with traditional values and felt he was someone who knew a dictator wasn’t what California needed — at least not for the whole state. But the last chapter of his book reveals that he is a Communitarian, if I read him rightly, and has views on “regionalism” in California are no different from what Agenda 21 is all about. He seems to think “participatory democracy” is a great idea, valuing de Tocqueville’s views of “democracy in America” rather than valuing the state as part of a constitutional republic. He also seems to know nothing of how many Americans/Californians just want government to let them alone and to get off their backs; they do not want to get “more involved” with politics. Prove me wrong about Kiley. I can’t vote for him at this point.

  2. WHO else besides Kiley and Gallagher have stood up against Newsom’s one man rule? Where was Faulconer or Cox while Newsom ran roughshod over the state for more than a year?

  3. Sorry, but we have too many Democrats running this state already. I don’t trust another one, even Kiley.

    1. Michael, are we talking about the same Kevin? He isn’t a democrat! This is the day I have been waiting for! Finally a good republican to give Gavin the boot! Kevin has always fought for the good of California.

    2. Kiley is NOT a democrat. I have found him to be honestly for what the people of California want. He’s NOT corrupt. He’s not egotistical or narcissistic. He’s down to earth. He actually LISTENS to his constituents and he has fought back against the super majority of democrats in the legislature (rubber stamp) and Newsom’s reign of selfish terror this entire time. Go Kevin Kiley! We need more legislator’s like Kevin!

  4. This is tremendously great news! WE CAN DO THIS. Everybody go donate now, it can be 5.00. Spread this news around! I just donated.
    Batman vs another one of the criminal villans. He has proven that he has what it takes, he stands out s a leader but most of all there is no doubt that he loves America and Californians.

  5. Judge Kevin Kiley by his actions.
    Now Judge Governor Newsom by his!
    Kiley has my support, hands down.

    He along with James Gallagher are the ONLY legislators that stuck their neck out and filed a lawsuit when the majority of legislatures were unwilling to hold Newsolini accountable for his one man rule and abuse of the California Emergencies Act.
    I was ecstatic to hear the news that he is ready to run, he will not back down from the challenge and understands how government runs at the state level. I have put my money where my mouth is and made a contribution to his campaign.

    I understand the cynicism for any candidate that is unknown to you but we need change and now! I am in the process of reading his book and I do not read his statements as liberal leaning. We need a common sense candidate, I think Kevin Kiley is that candidate.
    I encourage everyone to read his book and read Katy Grimes series on Newsom’s abuses in the past 20 months.
    Go, Kevin Go!

    1. AMEN, Caligirl! And I’ll still be here to vote and have signed up to be on his campaign team! Go Kevin Go!

      1. That is awesome news Stacy!
        It is time to send “Super Mario Newsom” packing.
        You will get the reference when you read Kevin Kiley’s book.
        Newsom is better suited for Hollywood, not Sacramento.

  6. Los Angeles County Sherriff Alex Villanueva is the obvious replacement. Dude is getting stuff done and pissing off folks. Plus he knows how to Ballot Harvest.

  7. Proofread edit : please change roll to role?

    “I’ve said all along that I am willing to play any roll I can.” Kiley said ”

    Paragraph #3…

    This is encouraging news, but I will be investigating the earlier poster’s observations about his writings & preferred style…

  8. I’m interested in seeing his game plan for water management, which is one of the most important, yet overlooked aspects of state infrastructure management, as well as energy policy …

    1. The attacks on Kevin from all sides have already started. Newsom’s SURROGATES will focus on the ONE that Gavin and Nancy fear the most. My prediction now is that Ric Grenell will not enter and will back Kiley, so as not to further split the vote. Jenna Ellis is for Kevin as well. This would open the door for a Trump endorsement. Then, Kiley will become a national figure. THIS is what we need.

      1. Amen. I agree. I certainly hope Grenell, Trump and others endorse Kiley. I also hope national conservative radio and TV shows start picking up on Kiley and start giving him National airtime. Wilkow, Levin, Hannity, Carlson, Ingraham, Riley, Bongino, WHERE ARE YOU?

  9. Kiley is NOT a democrat. I have found him to be honestly for what the people of California want. He’s NOT corrupt. He’s not egotistical or narcissistic. He’s down to earth. He actually LISTENS to his constituents and he has fought back against the super majority of democrats in the legislature (rubber stamp) and Newsom’s reign of selfish terror this entire time. Go Kevin Kiley! We need more legislator’s like Kevin!

    1. Lynette, I concur fully. Kevin will not be able to compete with Newsom as far as MONEY. The special interests will back Newsom – the SEIU, Service Employees International Union just donated $5 million to Newsom for the recall election. So, Kiley MUST have grassroots volunteer support. His campaign needs to crisscross the state doing in-person rallies. When his poll numbers increase, the national airtime from those you mention WILL come. Let’s get his snowball rolling.

        STATE OF CORRUPTION: RECALL NEWSOM
        A Jeff Roldan Documentary
        FILM SUMMARY

        A state with tens of thousands of failing businesses, no public in-person education, the smothering of constitutional freedoms, widespread tax dollar fraud totaling into the billions; this isn’t California dreamin’…it’s a nightmare. These are just a few of the many reasons the effort to recall Governor Gavin Newsom has picked up momentum and is heading towards accomplishing the goal of the required 1.5 million petition signatures that will trigger a recall election.

  10. What about the black conservative Larry Elder? He hasn’t been a politician, which right there makes me a fan of his!!!

    1. I like HIM too, AJ. Like you say, he’s a conservative and not a politician but he’s knowledgeable about politics and politicians. Especially in Southern California. My guess is that he will look at the field and pick a candidate to support. Watching him on Fox when he’s on, and like a lot of others, he didn’t think the recall petition would succeed – but it did succeed. What Larry has going for him is his following from radio and tv. He can influence.
