Following the results of the latest recall attempt on Governor Gavin Newsom, LACDP Chair Mark Gonzalez issued the following statement:
"Tonight, Californians sent a clear message to Republicans and the rest of the nation - we will reject Trumpism at all costs, and will always back those who continue to move our state forward.
For the 6th time, recall proponents have failed in their attempts to oust our Governor - this time using millions in taxpayer money, statewide resources, and mentally exhausting voters at a time when we should all be focused on ending this pandemic and getting Californians back in schools and back to work.
I am proud of the work of all of our grassroots organizations, activists, leaders and more here in Los Angeles County who stepped up to not only protect our county and state, but the future of our nation. I look forward to Democrats getting back to work with Governor Newsom and Democratic leadership on our key priorities including expanding healthcare access, pushing for voter protection reform (including reforming our recall process), climate change initiatives, keeping families and communities safe, and keeping our Golden State the greatest in our nation."
