The California Republican Party has decided not to officially endorse a candidate in the gubernatorial recall election. In a statement released on Saturday, party Chairwoman Jessica Millan Patterson announced delegates approved a motion to table an agenda item to make an endorsement.

According to Patterson, the decision speaks to the strength of the field of GOP candidates running to replace Gov. Gavin Newsom (D-Calif.). She said the party is in an outstanding position headed into the election.

Additionally, the chairwoman named four candidates who had qualified to be considered for an endorsement, including conservative commentator Larry Elder and former mayor of San Diego Kevin Faulconer.

In the meantime, Faulconer recently called out Newsom for suggesting the recall election wasn’t about his performance in office. During an interview published on Saturday, Faulconer said Newsom is trying to nationalize and partisanize the election.

This comes after the Democrat implied to journalists on Thursday that the recall is an effort by the GOP to help their chances in the 2022 midterms. Faulconer contended the recall is a referendum on Newsom’s failures on several fronts, including skyrocketing homelessness and lack of preparedness for wildfires, plus the coronavirus pandemic.
