Gingrich Gives Californians The Boost They Need To Takedown Newsom
Californias are struggling under the rigid lockdown restrictions imposed by Governor Gavin Newsom. So some Californians have decided enough is enough and are petitioning to recall Newsom. So far they have acquired about half of the 1.5 million signatures they need to have the Governor recall put on a ballot. Former Congressman Newt Gingrich aware of the poor leadership has decided to endorse the movement to help the struggling Americans.
"The 'blue wave’ that the left-wing media spent months talking about disappeared in California," Gingrich said Friday in a statement to POLITICO, referring to Republicans taking back four House seats Democrats won in 2018. "This is a direct result of Gavin Newsom’s destructive leadership that has crippled small businesses and sent billions of dollars of California COVID-19 jobless benefits to criminals across the nation."
Gingrich nodded to Newsom's stay-home orders, which now apply to most residents, and recent findings by county prosecutors that crime rings have worked with California inmates to draw hundreds of millions in unemployment benefits.
The Gingrich endorsement was touted by California conservative recall backers as a major breakthrough that will boost fundraising, volunteerism and exposure for their recall effort. California signature efforts almost always rely on millions of dollars to reach voters in a state of 40 million residents.
“Newt Gingrich's endorsement will bring us into the national spotlight,’’ Rescue California Chair Tom Del Beccaro, a leading proponent of the recall movement, told POLITICO. “He’s all in: he will support us through social media, with donor phone calls, zoom meetings and fundraising emails.’’
Californians need all the help they can get. They should have known better than to vote Newsom in to begin with but at least now are actively trying to remove the bad leader. Newsom is killing small businesses with his strict orders and really how are families supposed to keep food on the table if the local govt is killing business.
