California Dem Governor Gavin Newsom must believe he is in real trouble with the accelerated pace of the recall campaign against him.
The Biden administration offered their support for the struggling governor Wednesday in the form of a tweet from White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki.
“In addition to sharing a commitment to a range of issues with @GavinNewsom from addressing the climate crisis to getting the pandemic under control, @POTUS clearly opposes any effort to recall @GavinNewsom.”

Newsom is surely feeling the heat from the recall efforts. It would seem that Newsom requested an endorsement in the hopes of bolstering himself.
“When they have to call out the big guns like that it means they know they’re in trouble,” Ann Dunsmore, campaign manager and finance director of Rescue California 2021, told Fox News. “That he had to get them to come out in a White House tweet to say that they don’t support the recall, is more evidence that they’re in trouble,” she said.
Real trouble is right. According to Recall Gavin 2020, the main organizers of the recall, they have collected more than 1.4 out 1.5 million signatures needed to qualify for a ballot measure as of Wednesday. The they plan to collect 2 million additional signatures to offset for any invalidated signatures ahead of the March 10 deadline.
Californians have had it with the disgraceful governor who has mismanaged the COVID pandemic forcing businesses to close with his over the top draconian measures, increased taxes, forest mismanagement and the like.

His constituents are expressing their displeasure not only with the recall movement but actually heckling him during a press conference Wednesday where he was repeatedly interrupted with chants of “Recall Newsom!”
Newsom was making an appearance in Fresno at the city’s fairgrounds to give an update on the COVID-19 pandemic and discuss a new vaccine distribution site in the Central Valley along with negotiating the reopening of schools.
While talking about the vaccine rollout, hecklers outside the fairgrounds could be heard shouting “Recall Newsom! Recall Newsom!”

He’s in the Central Valley talking about vaccine rollout, ongoing negotiations to get kids back to school, youth sports, etc. Says CA has now given 5 million doses of vaccine. @FOXLA pic.twitter.com/CewonYrB8D

It is unlikely Biden’s endorsement will do anything to help Newsom at this point. He made his own bed when he defied his own lockdown orders attending an absurdly expensive birthday gathering at a very posh Napa Valley restaurant with no social distancing, no masks and a complete stab in the back to every other restaurant forced to close indoor dining. He is the epitome of a hypocrite who absolutely should be recalled.
