California Gov. Gavin Newsom beats back GOP-led recall (https://apnews.com/article/joe-biden-donald-trump-california-climate-elections-a590782877be099d44f1766b2d138394)

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — California Gov. Gavin Newsom on Tuesday emphatically defeated a recall aimed at kicking him out of office early, a contest the Democrat framed as part of a national battle for his party’s values in the face of the coronavirus pandemic and continued threats from “Trumpism.”

Newsom bolted to a quick victory boosted by healthy turnout in the overwhelmingly Democratic state. He cast it as a win for science, women’s rights and other liberal issues, and it ensures the nation’s most populous state will remain in Democratic control as a laboratory for progressive policies.

“‘No’ is not the only thing that was expressed tonight,” Newsom said. “I want to focus on what we said ‘yes’ to as a state: We said yes to science, we said yes to vaccines, we said yes to ending this pandemic.”

With about 60% of ballots counted, “no” on the question of whether to recall Newsom was ahead by a 2-to-1 margin. That lead was built on votes cast by mail and in advance of Tuesday’s in-person balloting, with a strong showing by Democrats. While likely to shrink somewhat in the days ahead as votes cast at polling places are counted, Newsom’s lead couldn’t be overcome.

There’s nothing media enjoys like a spectacle. Coon Elder spent his credibility in California and has little to none left... The recall attempt cost roughly $300 million, money that could have gone to hospitals, schools or water infrastructure. It was a GOP political stunt that backfired...

Yup, this was pointed out last year. What a waste of money.

Elder will be back.  Republicans do not or rarely care about credibility, hyprocrisy or how they look.  They are power hungry and care about power first and foremost.  Elder may not run for governor but will be back in one way or another on the national scence.

- He will probably just move to texas or idaho, or some other red state and start over, just like that guy ( retired army lt col ), that moved from fl to tx, got a spot in the tx gop, and three weeks ago, he and his wife got their negro call reminder, when she was stopped for erratic driving.

He'll be back, because Republican koons are a rare breed in California.  He's milking the crap out of what's left of the Reagan and Nixon Republicans in California.

???…..bruh, I understand what you’re saying here, but I honestly think Larry has now been exposed as a complete and utter fraud and joke.

It’s one thing to spew all of his self-hating bashing of black folks over the broadcast radio waves, much to the never ending delight of bigots/white supremacists. But Larry mistakenly believed he could parley his “koonery” into being the blackface to take down a VERY skilled political operator like Gavin Newsome.

I suspect now many of the white folks who have funded and supported Larry’s foolishness over the years will now divert their dollars and attention to some other nucca koon. Larry has now been exposed as a stupid loser, and I won’t be surprised if Newsome privately unleashes some of his political operatives to further diminish Larry.

The age-led maxim applies here: If you’re gonna take down the “king,” you damn well better be successful, or YOU will be the one going down.   :shrug:

Texas has become a magnet for koons chasing behind Republican corporate dollars, but I doubt Larry Elder will move there.  I think he loves being the crazy odd ball koon in California. He has been in the kooning game for a long time now.

5 takeaways from Newsom’s big win in California’s recall election

https://www.latimes.com/politics/story/2021-09-14/5-takeaways-from-the-recall-election-newsom-blowout?utm_source=pocket-newtab

A recall campaign that at one point appeared poised to upend Democratic politics in sapphire-blue California concluded Tuesday with the status quo preserved, as Gov. Gavin Newson handily beat back an effort to oust him from office.

A strong GOP showing at the polls on election day could not match Democratic dominance in early voting. Concerns among Democrats over the summer that their party’s voters were more apathetic than highly motivated Republican ones resulted in a torrent of spending on television and outreach efforts to every part of the traditional Democratic coalition, including labor, minorities and women.

The emergence of conservative talk radio host Larry Elder in July provided the perfect foil for Newsom. The governor went from casting the recall as a naked Republican power grab to hammering on a one-on-one contrast with Elder, his decades-long record of inflammatory remarks and his plans if elected to office.

The result was that the California electorate reverted to form and voted as it has in recent gubernatorial elections, giving the Democrat a double-digit victory, with nearly three-quarters of the vote counted.
