Additionally, Piazza said he would go to Dodger Stadium, where he once played, to personally thank all of the Dodger fans who voted to rid the Golden State of the Democrat governor:
Hey guys it’s Mike Piazza, former Dodger and Hall of Famer, get out and vote, get out and vote to recall Gavin Newsom and put Larry Elder in Sacramento.
Here’s the deal: You guys do this I’ll personally come out to Dodger Stadium and thank all the Dodger fans who voted for him and say hi to a lot of friends I haven’t seen in a long time. Larry Elder will bring back the California Dream.
When I got to L.A. that’s all, all my friends talked about was moving to California, and now everyone talks about is moving out of California. Larry Elder wants to change this. He’s a man of deeply loves California and will bring back the California Dream. Vote for Larry Elder.

If a majority of Californians vote “no” on recall, then Newsom will remain in office. However, if more than 50% vote “yes,” the candidate with the most votes will become California’s new governor.
