With a dramatic entrance into the upcoming September 14 statewide recall election of Governor Gavin Newsom (D-CA), Republican radio talk show host, author and lawyer Larry Elder offers ideas about education, crime and the economy that challenge longstanding progressive public policy and that are increasingly advocated by Black GOP candidates nationwide.
A late arrival to the race, Elder first had to secure a judicial ruling overturning the California Secretary of State’s controversial decision denying him a place on the ballot.
With that victory in hand, polls reveal that Elder has grabbed a quick lead among some 46 candidates seeking to replace Gov. Newsom, running ahead of a GOP field that includes former San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer, 2018 gubernatorial candidate and Rancho Santa Fe businessman John Cox, Assemblyman Kevin Kiley (R-Rocklin), and Caitlyn Jenner, the retired Olympian and media personality.
Gov. Newsom faces a serious challenge to remain in office after some 2 million recall petition signatures were gathered from an energized electorate unhappy with his performance.
