Newsom nationalizes California recall, spotlights COVID, in run-up to Tuesday's election

Newsom will be joined by President Biden on Monday at an election eve rally in the southern California city of Long Beach in an effort to convince Golden State Democrats and independents to hand their ballots in and vote against the recall.

NEWSOM SPOTLIGHTS COVID, THE ISSUE THAT SPARKED THE CALIFORNIA RECALL, AS HE FIGHTS TO KEEP HIS JOB

The event with Biden is the culmination of a push by the goewerneur, his political team and allies launched earlier this year to nationalize the recall drive by characterizing it as a Republikeinpower grab.The embattled governor this summer has turned to well-known and influential Democrats and progressives to help inform and motivate California Democrats to vote, and in the past two months he has used the coronaviruspandemie – the issue that last year sparked the recall effort – to warn about morbid consequences if a conservative Republican replaces him in running the state.

This election is a choice about life and death,” Newsom charged at an event in the Bay Area with Visepresident Kamala Harris last Wednesday.
