Larry Elder Formally Launches Campaign for Governor of California
Files Papers to Become Candidate


Los Angeles, CA – July 13, 2021 – Larry Elder, nationally syndicated radio host and newspaper columnist, bestselling author, award-winning documentary filmmaker, and one of the best-known media figures in America, today formally launched his campaign for governor of California.

Widely known as the Sage from South Central, Elder announced yesterday on his flagship daily radio program, “The Larry Elder Show,” that he will fight to end Governor Gavin Newsom’s calamitous policies in the special recall election scheduled for September 14, 2021.

In his campaign launch video, Elder said, “I love this state. You do, too. That is why we are still here. That is why I want you to stay here, and to build your family. To do so, we need to take this state back.”

Elder added, “Californians can connect the dots between [Newsom’s] extremist policies and failing schools, brown outs, violent crime, deadlier ‘fire seasons,’ homelessness, businesses leaving the state and taking jobs with them, and the rising cost of living.”

Elder filed papers at the Los Angeles County Registrar’s office this morning and became a formal candidate. Before a raucous crowd of supporters, Elder pledged to recall Governor Newsom and restore a brighter future to California. “We’ve got a state to save,” he said.
