Gavin Newsom: California's governor faces recall election



Opponents of สล็อตออนไลน์ California's governor have enough valid signatures to trigger a state-wide vote on his leadership.

California's secretary of state said that 1.6 million valid signatures had been verified, some 100,000 more than were needed.

Gavin Newsom, a first-term Democrat, was up for re-election in 2022, but the recall means he will now probably face a vote this autumn.

Among the opponents he may face are reality TV star Caitlyn Jenner.

Should the recall election go ahead, it would only be the second such vote in California, and the fourth nationwide, in US history.

Voters would be asked if they want Mr Newsom to stay or another candidate to take over.

In a tweet, Mr Newsom said the recall "threatens our values and seeks to undo the important progress we've made".

Ousting Mr Newsom may prove an uphill battle in the heavily Democratic state, where he was elected in 2018 with support from more than 60% of voters.

The last Republican governor of the state was actor Arnold Schwarzenegger, who was elected in 2003 following a celebrity-studded recall vote.

Ms Jenner, a former Olympic athlete and a transgender celebrity, will be hoping for a similar result when she contests the next election as a Republican in the state.
