California Governor Gavin Newsome is paying a heavy price for breaking Corona restrictions and being negligent. Opposition parties have acquired the signature of 1.6 million people in the state for removal from the post of governor. Now people in this state of America will vote to re-elect their governor. However, the ballot he will be given will also include the option of retaining the current governor, Gavin Newsome, to the post. It is being told that the signature of the Governor in California required at least 1 million people to be removed from the post, but the opposition parties gathered the support of 6 lakh more people from it.
Why is Newsome being removed from office?
The California governor is accused of being negligent during the Coronavirus epidemic. In November 2020, when the US was struggling badly with the Corona infection, Newsom appeared to be eating at a fancy restaurant for his political adviser’s birthday. He himself went out and appealed to the people to stay in the house.
The campaign started from February 2020
The campaign to oust Newsome began as governor in February 2020. Corona did not have that much influence in America then. The campaign was started by a conservative political group called the Patriot Coalition of California. The group launched a signature campaign in June 2020 to oust Newsome from the governorship. The organization alleged that the governor was in favor of foreign nationals and was opposing the law of the country. Apart from this, he has also been accused of not developing the state and raising taxes.
California Governor is a member of Biden’s party
Gavin Newsome is the newly-elected member of President Joe Biden’s Democratic Party. His term was coming to an end in 2022. But, after this signature campaign, the people of California will now vote for the new governor this year. The great thing is that in this election, reality TV star Katiline Jenner can play the role of opposition candidate in front of Newsome. Jenner is a former Olympic athlete and a transgender celebrity who has a big name in the US.
No governor will be removed for the fourth time in American history
This will be the fourth time in American history that a state will vote to remove its governor prematurely. However, this will be the second chance at California State. Voters will be asked in this election whether they want Newsome to remain governor or another candidate to take over. If people show support for Newsom, then there will be no threat to their chair.
Republicans capture California not easy
Experts who monitor California politics say that it may be difficult for the opposition Republican Party to occupy the state. Because, when Newsome became governor in 2018, he got more than 60 percent of the vote. Secondly, California is considered a stronghold of the Democratic Party. From here, the last governor of the Republican Party was Hollywood star Arnold Schwarzenegger, who was elected in 2003 during a similar recall voting.
