California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) has pointed fingers over the effort to get him out of office. When asked what the consequences of a successful recall would be during an interview last week, Newsom argued they would be negative and warned Democrats the effects would be “felt across the country” if the National Democratic Party did not help save him.

“I can think it will be quite pronounced for many, many years. I think it will be felt all across the country. I think that people really haven’t thought that through,” he stated. “I don’t think they’re asking that question. I don’t think the National Democratic Party is asking themselves that question.”

Newsom claimed the judge who approved the recall as well as TV news networks have been biased against him. He added voters who signed the petition did not read it through.

The governor also tried to justify his record and argued voters should just wait for his term to expire.

“Look, you don’t like me, you have a chance to vote me out start of the primary next year,” he expressed. “We elect people for terms. Two year, four year terms.”

Newsom’s plea for people to hold off until next year could be prompted by a poll released on Wednesday, which showed 51 percent of California voters wanted him recalled. Most cited his poor handling of COVID-19 and senseless business closures.

Meanwhile, out of the 46 candidates running to replace the liberal Democrat, conservative radio talk show host Larry Elder by far leads the pack.
