Earlier this month, the Los Angeles Times reported a Republican-led effort has ‘raised more than $2.5 million’ and that the ‘minimum amount’ and there’s nearly enough ‘valid signatures to place the matter on the ballot.’ 

Last week, a petition to recall Newsom reached more than 1.4 million signatures and was only 100,000 names off triggering a mid-year election.

The 54-year-old star of the Democrat Party has seen his approval rating dive because of the state’s oppressive Covid restrictions and a botched vaccine roll-out.

More than a third of voters said they would oust Newsom at the ballot box if the recall qualifies, a survey by UC Berkeley revealed.

Newsom, once widely tipped for a future White House run, is facing criticism from within his own party as the GOP-led campaign to recall him steams to a conclusion. 

Earlier this month, White House press secretary Jen Psaki tweeted that Newsom and President Joe Biden both have a ‘commitment to a range of issues’ and that Biden ‘clearly opposes any effort to recall’ him.
