Larry Elder ramped up the push to recall embattled California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D). Speaking at a campaign rally just east of Los Angeles on Tuesday, Elder blamed Newsom and his policies for the rising crime, high living costs and forest fires sweeping California.
“I’m here to talk about why Californians, almost two million of them, signed a petition to recall,” he stated. “This is not about Washington, D.C. It’s about California.”
The GOP candidate said both Newsom and the Democrat Party have failed the Golden State. He went on to detail Newsom’s mismanagement.
“It’s about California losing businesses. It’s about California losing jobs. It’s about California paying people not to work. It’s about crime. It’s about our poor government schools,” he asserted. “…We’re not managing our forests properly. We’re having rolling brownouts for crying out loud. I can’t think of any front where this man has done a good job.”

Elder went on to say Newsom’s policies have driven unemployment and homelessness over the past three years. He added the governor must be recalled to bring back economic prosperity in the Golden State.
