Newsom derides challenger Larry Elder for website link to report potential election fraud.
The past month has been filled with dreadful news, indeed.
And while I wish I could give you better news from the State of Insanity that is California, I find I cannot. It appears that odds favor Governor Gavin Newsom surviving the recall effort.
California Governor Gavin Newsom is on course to defeat the recall effort on September 14 after his odds of beating the attempt to remove him were slashed over the past week.
Bookmakers Betfair, which operates the world’s largest online betting exchange, puts Newsom’s odds of remaining in office at 1/8, while the odds that he is removed from office now stand at 4/1 on Sunday, September 12. This was a slight decline on odds offered on Saturday, which were 1/18 for him to remain in office and 6/1 for him to be removed.
This means Newsom is highly likely to defeat the recall and remain governor. A Betfair spokesperson told Newsweek that Newsom’s odds of victory have improved significantly over the last week. The odds of him surviving the recall were previously 2/9.
However, his reputation among various reliable Democratic constituencies has taken a hit. For example, many Latinos are less than impressed by his performance.
Latinos who gathered on Saturday in Los Angeles, California, for a rally in support of the recall of California Governor Gavin Newsom told Fox News which issues matter most to them. Many in the group felt misunderstood by Newsom.
“He talks about how he loves the Latino community, wants to help the Latino community but I didn’t see Governor Newsom down here last year when Latino businesses were hurt badly,”
“They make it seem like the only issue we care about is immigration when that is completely false. We care about putting food on the table, having jobs, being able to provide for our families, being able to go to a church that’s open and not shut down,” Samantha Sobarzo told Fox News.
Several of the rally attendees described the importance of family, small businesses, religion, and safety to the community.
Many Asian-American residents are also unhappy with his pandemic decisions.
Phuoc Dam has not forgiven Gov. Gavin Newsom for alleging that the first coronavirus case in California stemmed from a nail salon.
Dam, who owns Queen Nails in Brea, is still reeling from months without income after Newsom closed many businesses to stop the virus from spreading.
He marked his ballot “yes” on recalling Newsom, putting it in the mail weeks ago.
“It’s simple. He cost us our livelihood,” said Dam, 67, a Republican who moved to the U.S. from Vietnam. “We had to shut down for months and months for no clear reason.”
Meanwhile, many Californians are concerned about election fraud going into Tuesday’s recall election. Candidate Larry Elder has an election integrity section on his website, where voters can fill out a form to report alleged incidents of voter fraud and sign a petition to investigate the recall results.
Newsom derided Elder’s approach:
California Gov. Gavin Newsom slammed recall challenger Larry Elder for sowing mistrust about California’s recall election when Elder called on his supporters to report election fraud ahead of September 14, Politico reported.
On his campaign site, Elder added a “report election incident” link that leads to StopCAFraud.com, an anonymously registered website apparently created on August 27th that allows people to submit tips about ballot fraud.
“It’s just an extension of the Big Lie and ‘Stop the Steal,'” Newsom told reporters while voting with First Partner Jennifer Siebel Newsom at the California State Archives in Sacramento on Friday. “We’re four days out, the election hasn’t even happened, and now they’re all claiming election fraud. I think it’s important to highlight that.”
I must ask: If there will be no evidence of fraud to be reported, why the anger at Elder? Indeed, the vote casting associated with this election should be able to stand up to scrutiny.
God have mercy on us conservative Californians if Newsom remains, for the governor shall have none.DONATE
