California Recall Heads into Final Stretch

The recall election of California Gov. Gavin Newsom will be decided tomorrow. Polling suggests he will keep his job while top opponent Larry Elder has a bone to pick with the media.


Tomorrow’s California recall vote will decide whether the state’s voters fire Gov. Gavin Newsom and pick a new governor, which would be considered a “political earthquake.”

Author’s Take

New York Magazine and RedState’s coverage are two sides of the same gross, hyper-partisan coin. The fawning over Newsome as a pseudo-style icon while having to battle what the Los Angeles Times calls “the black face of white supremacy” is no better than RedState positing the notion that Newsom is letting the state burn so he can prevent those who may be dissatisfied with him from voting.  Both outlets need to do better.
