A grassroots organization nearly has enough support to disqualify a Democrat of his responsibility to sign bills passed by the California state Legislature.
The California Patriot Coalition/RecallGavin2020.com committee confirmed it only needs another 100,000 signatures before Gavin Newsom can officially be removed from the governor’s office of the Golden State.
At the time of publication, more than 1.4 million supporters had signed the online petition to recall and remove Newsom for introducing excessive government restrictions to contain the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) Virus.
“We are in the red zone at the 10-yard line,” campaign Senior Adviser Randy Economy said in a statement.
Slightly fewer than 1.5 million signatures are needed to compel California Secretary of State Shirley Weber to declare the governorship vacant and announce a special election to appoint a replacement.
The milestone came after campaign organizers embarked on a “Recall Road Trip” to 16 different cities across the state. Former Republican House candidate Joe Collins will collect signatures throughout the 28-day road trip, and residents have already welcomed him because they are tired of Newsom’s “lack of leadership.”
“Gavin has been less than mediocre for California,” Collins told Fox News. “Instead of giving money to illegal immigrants, he should have given back to small businesses … he should have been transparent on why he chose to shut down California.”
Collins believes the Newsom administration’s decision to shut down businesses did not stop the number of CCP-Virus-related deaths from soaring across California. At the time of publication, more than 3.3 million people have been infected and 42,960 died, according to the Worldometer website.
He also questioned the Democratic Party’s lack of public consultation.
“Instead, shut down targeted public areas,” Collins said. “I think a better solution is to listen to what people want.”
The committee now hopes to attract at least 1.8 million signatures before March 10.
“This past week, more than 100,000 registered voters in California have signed Gavin Newsom’s pink slip,” campaign lead proponent Orrin Heatlie said.
The Rescue California movement, which is also campaigning for Newsom’s removal, believes the Democrat’s extreme response to the pandemic is killing business. Employers of all sizes are relocating their operations to other states in response.
“He is going to be putting mom and pop businesses out of business—he already has, and those that have slightly survived this turmoil are fleeing this state,” Rescue California Campaign Manager Anne Dunsmore told “Fox and Friends.” “Even the corporate giants are leaving. It is not sustainable. It is going to end up hurting us.”
Dunsmore revealed Newsom is not only making the Golden State a less attractive place to do business but he is also destroying revenue streams for the state budget. She believes these are signs a communist-style of governing has influenced Newsom.
“His tax base is basically being obliterated, and he is being pulled in a lot of different directions, and I think what you are starting to see is that he is being pulled by the left very far to the left, and it is not working for him,” she said.
