Conservative radio host Larry Elder is leading the field of candidates running to remove California Gov. Gavin Newsom from office by way of a recall election scheduled to take place on Sept. 14, according to a new poll released Wednesday.
The Inside California Politics and Emerson College poll found California voters favored Elder by 10 points when asked which of the recall candidates they planned to support.
Speaking with KRON-TV Wednesday evening, Elder said he announced his candidacy earlier this month, and has thus not been a candidate in the race to recall Newsom for long. Elder credited his public profile as a nationally syndicated radio host with his showing in the poll.
