Republicans in California have been tirelessly working to remove Governor Gavin Newsom (D) from office. Now they will have the support of certain Democrat interests who are tiring of Newsom.
This is bad news for Newsom as any crack in the Democrat line could have catastrophic results for his future in office.

Senior advisor Randy Economy, who works for the Recall Gavin Newsom movement, said, “This governor is his own worst enemy, and every day he does something more that puts him deeper and deeper into controversy, and he’s become a problem here in California.
