Larry Elder ‘Leads the Pack’ of Republican Challengers in CA Gov Recall Race After Confirmation of Ballot Entry

According to a poll released earlier this week, Larry Elder already has a ten-point lead over two other Republican challengers in the California governor recall election.

Elder led the way with sixteen percent of respondents intending to vote for him, while 6 percent said they’d vote for businessman John Cox and another 6 percent said they’d vote for former San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer.

Caitlyn Jenner, who made a splash in announcing entry into the race, but is currently in Australia forming a celebrity version of the reality show “Big Brother,” got just 4 percent support.

While Elder leads among Republicans, 48 percent of poll respondents said they’d prefer to keep Newsom in office, versus the 43 percent who said they want him out with nine percent are undecided.

Gov. Gavin Newsom’s campaign spokesperson Nathan Click emphasized the importance of voting in the upcoming recall election and urged Democrats not to take the result for granted.

Click insisted, “Californians see this Republican recall for what it is—a blatant attempt by Trump supporters to grab power and impose their Republican agenda on California. Democrats can’t get complacent—we have to vote. If Californians vote, we win.”

Newsom recently attacked those who are not vaccinated against COVID in his state.

“We’re experiencing a pandemic of the unvaccinated. The vaccine is free. The vaccine can save your life. Don’t wait,” Newsom claimed.

Previously, we reported:

Conservative radio host Larry Elder, who recently announced that he was running for California Governor in the upcoming recall election as a Republican, won a victory in court today to have his name appear on the ballot after he was originally denied due to some tax return issues.

Harmeet K. Dhillon reported that, “Judge orders California to include Larry Elder on the ballot in California recall election. Says tax returns were never required in the first place for a recall as opposed to a primary election.”
