CALIFORNIA GOVERNOR RECALL
By Liz Kreutz
Monday May 10, 2021 4:27PM

SAN FRANCISCO -- With the recall election of California Governor Gavin Newsom all but inevitable, supporters of the effort have now entered what they're calling "phase two" of the campaign -- the period where they hope to finish the job and successfully remove Newsom from office.

ABC7 News was first to obtain a 12-page document that outlines how "Rescue California," one of the groups behind the recall, hopes to do it.

The prospective document, which has been circulated among some high-level Republicans and potential donors, and confirmed by "Rescue California," shows a campaign underway to weaken Newsom and generate support for the recall through a variety of strategies. Among them, to create a "Volunteer Citizens Brigade" that will identify potential supporters, "ballot harvest" Republican votes, and target Latino, APPI and Independent voters.

4. "The total proposed budget for their efforts: $15 million."

gee, I wonder what else they could possibly do with 15 million.

I think this is all because he went out to dinner at an expensive restaurant. (they really "owned" him with that). They bring this up at every chance . It is even mentioned twice in the commercial for that John Cox guy who is trying to run for governor . John Cox has a 1000 pound bear in his commercials and he has drawn the ire of many animal rights groups for it.

His ad mentions the bad job Newsom did with the pandemic yet California has very good numbers now dealing with the virus/vaccination rates. His ad says Newsom is the beauty and he is the beast.

Us Californians better get the hell out and vote.

6. What a stupid ad. Who would be convinced to vote for "the beast"?

Although... it is appropriate that a Republican equates himself to a Russian circus bear.
