    Republican gubernatorial candidate Larry Elder could make history as California’s first Black governor if he unseats Gov. Gavin Newsom in Tuesday’s recall election – but the liberal media hasn’t done the conservative radio host any favors.  Elder has been constantly vilified by the press since emerging as the frontrunner among the 46 candidates looking to replace Newsom. The GOP hopeful has been called the "Black face of White supremacy," a "very real threat to communities of color," and even a  a "model minority." Fox News contributor Leo Terrell has called coverage of Elder "disgraceful" and Fox News Fox News contributor Deroy Murdock was particular peeved that that a racially charged attack on Elder went largely unreported by prominent liberal news organizations.  LARRY ELDER BRUSHES OFF LA TIMES COLUMN THAT CALLED HIM 'THE BLACK FACE OF WHITE SUPREMACY' Conservative radio talk show host Larry Elder speaks to supporters during a campaign stop outside the Hall of Justice downtown Los Angeles.

    SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — California’s recall on Tuesday will be the biggest election since Joe Biden became president, and its results may hint at the political trajectory of the country. In a state where Democrats outnumber Republicans 2-to-1, Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom is seen as having the upper hand in his bid to fend off the GOP-fueled recall. Republican talk show host Larry Elder is the leading Republican replacement. But California’s recalls are like no other elections. Voters first have to decide whether to recall the officeholder — in this case, Newsom — and then answer a second ballot question over who should be the replacement. This unorthodox process has had wild outcomes before — it led to actor Arnold Schwarzenegger becoming governor in 2003. Five things to look for in Tuesday’s unusual contest: CAN COVID-19 POLICY SAVE THE DEMOCRATS? The effort to recall Newsom began over his policies on immigration, crime and taxes but gained steam after he ordered restrictions to curb the pandemic and urged Californians to stay home — and was caught going against his...

    Caitlyn Jenner told the Kardashian and Jenner kids to stay out of her campaign to protect their brands as she vies to replace California Governor Gavin Newsom, who is facing a recall election next Tuesday. 'On the family point… is there any friction there because you're so high profile?' California Rebel Base podcast co-host Steve Hilton asked in a taping of the show last week that was exclusively shared with DailyMail.com. 'I told my kids, when you do something like this it's not just me making decisions. Obviously I come first on the decision making but then really the influencing and – I don't know if you know, but I have a very high profile family,' she joked. 'Wonderful family – all of my kids. I mean these kids – I couldn't be prouder, they're absolutely amazing.' 'But I told them – I called up each one of them and said, 'Hey, this is what I'm looking to do,' and I said, 'I want you guys out of it,' Jenner told Hilton and co-host Kristen Garcia-Dumont in the podcast episode...
    He’s not on the ballot in the California recall election of Gov. Gavin Newsom, but former President Trump’s often front and center as the embattled Democratic governor fights to save his job steering the Golden State. Newsom told a crowd at a rally this weekend in Culver City, California, that while Trump was defeated by now-President Biden in last November’s election, "we did not defeat Trumpism." The governor and his political team for months have framed the recall drive against him as an effort by the far right, Trump supporters, national Republicans and conservative media to oust him. So it’s no surprise that over the past month Newsom and his allies have been regularly blasting conservative talk radio host Larry Elder, who’s become the clear front runner according to public opinion polls among the nearly 50 replacement gubernatorial candidates on the ballot. NEWSOM SPOTLIGHTS ‘CONSEQUENTIAL DECISION’ OVER COVID IN RECALL ELECTION Newsom and his team have sent out press releases, fundraising emails, social media posts and indirectly targeted Elder in ads, highlighting his opposition to having any minimum wage, his...
    With less than two weeks to go until the deadline for California voters hand in their ballots in the state’s gubernatorial recall election, embattled Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom is fighting to keep his job. The recall push, launched in June of last year, was fueled by the state's COVID restrictions on businesses and houses of worship, school shutdowns and even opposition to the state's high taxes. WILL NEWSOM'S PUSH TO GET OUT THE DEMOCRATIC VOTE SAVE CALIFORNIA'S DEMOCRATIC GOVERNOR FROM GETTING RECALLED? State election officials began mailing ballots to California’s 22 million registered voters in the middle of last month. While Democrats greatly outnumber Republicans in the heavily blue state of California, the latest public opinion polls suggesting that those likely to cast ballots in the contest are divided on whether to recall the governor. Newsom and his allies acknowledge that they need a strong turnout to counter Republican voters motivated to cast ballots in hopes of ousting the governor. Voters are being asked two questions on the recall ballot. The first question is whether the governor should be removed from office. If...
    California  Republican gubernatorial candidate Kevin Faulconer believes Gov. Gavin Newsom is trying to "partisan-ize" this year's recall election, which is being held on Sept. 14. The former San Diego mayor's comments came after Newsom expressed concern during a virtual interview published Thursday by The Sacramento Bee that his actions and policies as governor have not justified a fair recall and that the effort is being pushed by the right to help Republicans in the 2022 midterm elections. "Gavin Newsom is trying to nationalize [and] partisan-ize the election," Faulconer said in an interview with Fox News. "What he doesn't realize is that this is a referendum on his failures here in California, pure and simple. It's a failure on schools, it's a failure on skyrocketing homelessness, [a] dramatic rise in crime and his lack of preparedness for wildfires."

    Once the $276 million (in taxpayer funds) gubernatorial recall is mercifully over in September, the Legislature needs to seriously address deficiencies in the recall process. In the 92 years since the provision was added to the state Constitution and 2003, there had never been a recall attempt against a sitting governor that qualified for the ballot, despite dozens of attempts. Now, two of the last three Democratic governors will have been subjected to a recall within 18 years. The main reason: California Republicans can’t win a gubernatorial election outright, so they are using the recall as a back-door alternative. When they couldn’t defeat a very unpopular Gov. Gray Davis in the 2002 general election, Republicans came back for a re-do the next year via the recall. (The last time California Republicans defeated a sitting Democratic governor in a regular election was in 1966.) Democrat Gavin Newsom won the 2018 gubernatorial race with 62% of the vote — the largest margin of victory for a candidate of either party since 1950. The recall provision was designed by early-20th-century Progressives as a tool to rid...
    Neither Gov. Gavin Newsom, a Democrat, nor Republican candidates Caitlyn Jenner and Larry Elder will be on the stage next week for the first gubernatorial debate in California’s recall election set for Sept. 14. The debate, which is scheduled for next Wednesday, Aug. 4, at the Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum in Yorba Linda, is being co-hosted by FOX11, the FOX affiliate in Los Angeles. JENNER DEFENDS TRIP TO AUSTRALIA AMID CALIFORNIA RECALL ELECTION Elder will be attending a fundraiser in Bakersfield, California, which his campaign said the conservative talk radio host had committed to before the debate date was set. Elder announced his candidacy two weeks ago, just ahead of the filing deadline to get on the ballot. Jenner, who launched her campaign in April, also has a scheduling conflict. The 1976 Olympic gold medal winning decathlete turned transgender rights activist and nationally known TV personality is currently in Australia, on what her campaign described as a work obligation. But the campaign wouldn’t confirm or deny that the candidate had traveled to Australia for a lucrative deal to...
    A California judge has cleared conservative radio host Larry Elder (R) to appear on the state gubernatorial recall ballot, the Associated Press reported.  Superior Court Judge Laurie M. Earl on Wednesday ruled that state officials could not block Elder from appearing on the ballot for not publicly releasing his tax records for the last five years, a new rule Democrats has passed that was aimed at former President Donald Tump.    “I don’t find that Mr. Elder was required to file tax returns at all,” Earl said.  Earl determined that the new requirement didn’t apply to the recent recall election, according to the AP.  “Victory!,” Elder wrote in a tweet. “My next one will be on Sept. 14 at the ballot box.”  Victory! My next one will be on Sept. 14 at the ballot box. https://t.co/mnvU6s5Wid#RecallGavinNewsom #WeveGotAStateToSave pic.twitter.com/qI2X3IBSHw— Larry Elder (@larryelder) July 21, 2021 Elder, who announced his gubernatorial bid on July 12, joins 45 other hopefuls on the ballot for the state’s recall election, which is aimed at removing Gov.

    Conservative talk radio host Larry Elder told Fox News on Wednesday that California Gov. Gavin Newsom and his Democratic allies are "scared to death" after a judge overturned the state’s bid to block Elder’s name from appearing on the ballot in an upcoming recall election. State elections officials initially barred Elder, a Republican candidate seeking to replace Newsom, from being on the ballot for allegedly filing incomplete tax information. Elder maintained that he filed all necessary paperwork and accused elections officials of failing to provide a clear reason for his ouster. Superior Court Judge Laurie M. Earl determined that Elder’s application met state requirements, clearing the way for him to formally enter the race. Elder hailed the judge’s decision, arguing state elections officials challenged his bid because he represents the biggest threat to Newsom’s chances. "I believe that Larry Elder was targeted by Gavin Newsom in order to keep me off the ballot because I believe I’m the only one that he’s afraid of," Elder said in an interview with Fox News. "I know a lot of politicians say stuff...
    EXCLUSIVE: One of the leading Republican gubernatorial contenders in this year's California recall election is going up with his first major ad blitz in the campaign to oust embattled Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom.The Spanish language commercial by the campaign of former San Diego mayor Kevin Faulconer takes aim at the governor’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic and the state’s expanding population of homeless people. NEWSOM THE 'BEAUTY' AND COX THE 'BEAST' IN FIRST MAJOR AD BLITZ IN CALIFORNIA RECALL "Gavin Newsom has failed us," the announcer in the spot charges. "We’re among last when it comes to school reopenings, he’s freed thousands of violent criminals and his policies have made homelessness worse in California."

To demonstrate to the world that California isn’t a lost cause."

But the campaign didn’t share how much money...
    Some Democratic strategists believe Caitlyn Jenner's candidacy for governor in the upcoming recall election could prove a win for sitting Gov. Gavin Newsom.  Jenner’s decision to stock her campaign full of Trump-era advisors, like former campaign manager Brad Parscale, could tip the scales in Newsom’s direction, Democratic operatives told Vanity Fair for a report published Wednesday.  CAITLYN JENNER RELEASES FIRST CALIFORNIA RECALL VIDEO, SAYING IT'S 'TIME TO REOPEN' Newsom’s recall effort has been compared to the state’s previous recall election, which saw the ousting of Gray Davis after Arnold Schwarzenegger won in 2003.   But some political strategists believe Republicans do not have the same shot this time around.  "People hated Gray Davis at the time, mostly because of the energy crisis and the rolling blackouts," San Francisco Democratic consultant Katie Merrill told Vanity Fair. "Newsom, despite the pandemic and all the challenges, remains very popular."  A poll released in late March found that 56 percent of Californians said they would not vote to recall the governor.  Merrill suggested the tone in California is completely separate from the Davis recall election. IN FIRST MAJOR...
    As Democratic California Gov. Gavin Newsom faces the possibility of a recall election, former Republican San Diego Mayor and California gubernatorial candidate Kevin Faulconer railed against him in a statement to the Daily Caller. Newsom gave his third annual State of the State speech from a near-empty Dodger Stadium on Tuesday, where he admitted his administration “made mistakes” but still touted California’s progress in defeating the COVID-19 pandemic. He also alluded to the recall campaign against him by condemning “critics, who are promoting partisan power grabs and outdated prejudices, and rejecting everything that makes California great.” “Gavin Newsom’s State of the State was nothing more than empty words in an empty stadium,” Faulconer told the Daily Caller in a statement on Friday. “This recall movement is powered by millions of Californians who are stepping up and demanding change. We are committed to ending the failures of this administration and beginning a California Comeback, that’s why I’m running.” However, despite the momentum to push Newsom out of office, a Feb. 2 Berkley IGS poll found 45% of California voters would back him in...
