“Where do I start about the job this man, Gavin Newsom, has done in the last two years?” Elder told supporters Saturday in the Pacific Palisades.
He went on to accuse Newsom of “ignoring science” by implementing a mask mandate for state workers amid widespread vaccination in the state, as well as requiring all students and school staff to wear masks this coming school year.
The conservative radio host is currently leading in the crowded race to unseat Newsom in the recall election this September, according to an Emerson College/Nexstar Media poll, grabbing the support of 16% of voters.
