Following months of egregious and hypocritical lockdown measures by far-left California Governor Gavin Newsom, organizers of a recall campaign reached the threshold to qualify for a statewide ballot.
According to Recall Gavin 2020 spokesman Randy Economy, the effort surpassed the legally required 1.5 million signature threshold needed to trigger a special election in the state.
But, they’re not stopping there.
“We’re not stopping at the 1.5 million signatures that we’ve collected thus far,” Economy said in a Fox News interview. “Our ultimate goal is to get…1.8 million to 2 million because we don’t want to leave any doubt in anybody’s mind in regards to the validity and the accuracy of what we’re doing here.”
The goal is to get two million signatures by March 17, as expectations clear that a certain percentage of obtained signatures will be disqualified. Democrats in the state will likely go over each signature with a very critical eye, as reported by BizPacReview.
“We’re not there yet. We wanted to take the opportunity to celebrate the milestone along the way. But our job is not done. We’re working as hard as today as we were yesterday, and we’re going to work harder tomorrow.”
When asked about whether the campaign would make it to the finish line, Economy said he was “100% sure that we’re going to get to that point.”
So, what happens if it does?
If the recall goes forward, voters will be asked two questions: “Do they want to recall Newsom, yes or no? And, if more than 50% of voters say ‘yes,’ who should replace him?
If enough voters answer yes to the first question, the candidate with the most votes becomes governor.
The campaign to recall Newsom gained traction after the governor was caught violating his own stay-at-home order by partying maskless at a restaurant in northern California.
In simple terms, do as he says, not as he does.
“The French Laundry debacle…will go down in his political obituary as probably the dumbest thing any politician has ever done,” Economy said. “He just threw it in the face of every good Californian that he says, ‘Listen, I’m going to put you all under house arrest, but I’m going to go down at the most lavish, most expensive, most elegant restaurant in America. And I’m going to bring 22 lobbyists with me and we’re going to sit and talk about how we’re going to proceed in the future.”
“We’re done. We’re done with them,” he added. “And we’re going to do everything we can to get him out of office as fast as we can.”
