The former mayor said Democrats are trying to undermine the petition to recall failed Gov. Gavin Newsom (D-Calif.), which has already gathered over 2 million signatures.
Faulconer is seen as the leading Republican candidate to become California’s next governor.
He went on to say Democrats are trying to intimidate the Golden State’s voters by giving their private information to political operatives.
