Talk radio host, author, attorney, and filmmaker Larry Elder announced that he is running to be Governor of California in mid-July, citing Gavin Newsom’s “egregious” behavior, including trips to the French Laundry restaurant while “his own kids [continued] to enjoy their private in-school education,” as one reason for his decision.
