Following the announcement that proponents have gathered enough qualified signatures to force a potential recall of Governor Newsom, LACDP Chair Mark Gonzalez issued the following statement:
“$400 million on the backs of our 39 million Californians. Republicans are forcing a recall on a governor whose approval ratings are over 50%, and who has proven he can get things done, because they know they can’t win in 2022. Los Angeles Democrats say: Bring. It. On. It's a waste of our time, and tax payer money. This recall will fail later this year, and Democrats are going to remind Republicans, again, why in November of 2022"
