SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — The vote has concluded in California’s recall elections that could remove Governor Gavin Newsom from office.
The race for Tuesday will be determined by how voters evaluate the Democratic governor’s response to the coronavirus epidemic. It also determines if the most populous country will adopt a conservative stance.
Only the fourth governor to be recalled in US history is Newsom.
Larry Elder, a Republican talk radio host, wants to be the state’s first African governor in the event that Newsom is reelected.
For Newsom to remain in office, he needs support from a simple majority of voters.
He will be reelected next year if he wins.
