Embattled California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) was just busted buying votes. It is a total act of desperation as he fights for his political life.
“Two-thirds of Californians will benefit from a stimulus check of at least $600, and families with kids will now benefit from an additional $500,” announced Newsom this week.
Newsom, who is facing a recall election, thinks he can buy Californians off with a few hundred dollars. He is likely in for a rude awakening. People want jobs and opportunities, not measly handouts.
Former San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer (R) and former Olympian Caitlyn Jenner (R) are both mounting campaigns to oust the current governor — and either could win.
Newsom also shouldn’t be underestimated. He will have a hefty war chest and support from the political establishment in California and Washington, DC. He will remain formidable.
However, Newsom is also responsible for the widespread business closures and massive job losses sustained in The Golden State. It will all depend on how most Californians feel going into the voting booth.
