The overwhelming rejection of the effort to recall California Governor Gavin Newsom is a powerful message for those Republicans who think their future lies with Donald Trump and Trumpism.
The vote was roughly 2-to-1 against the recall. That’s a landslide by any measure.
Larry Elder’s mammoth defeat a repudiation of Trump Dumb!
For Republicans who backed the recall, that’s a clear repudiation. And what makes it even more significant is that Newsom did some things as governor that stirred anger and resentment.
What made Newsom especially vulnerable was his arrogant and foolish decision during the pandemic last year to have dinner in a Napa Valley French restaurant without a mask.
