It is his Democratic Party.
Newsom is betting that he can turn the recall election into a referendum on the Democratic Party. He is playing off of what he thinks are two very bad things happening in the state:
1) The Democrats have lost control of the legislature and are being held hostage by their own members.
2) The Democrats have lost control of the executive branch and are being held hostage by their own governor.
This is a very risky bet, but at least Lewisburgowitz has been able to accomplish something in his first term as governor: He has kept himself in office, which is more than can be said for his predecessor, Kathleen Blanco, who was recalled in September 2006 after she refused to take responsibility for Katrina’s devastation. It may be possible that Newsom will become an example of how you can successfully fight back against a recall campaign. His strategy may well work, but it would be nice if he could get some cooperation from some of his fellow Democrats.
Last stops at the border today included a tour along the Rio Grande River and the border wall- with visible gaps in it where construction has stopped.
We must work together to complete the wall & reimplement policies like ‘Remain in Mexico’ that will end the #BidenBorderCrisis. https://t.co/fodEEcGdNq
Florida has done better than most in dealing with Covid, but @GovRonDeSantis' methods don’t align with the left’s talking points—so their friends in Big Tech censored a discussion he had with doctors. YouTube’s censorship policies are ill-conceived and expose their political bias https://t.co/hnRan8Iu1m
When Biden’s “American Jobs Act” puts more money into electric cars than the roads they drive on, it’s time to rethink our priorities. We need to take a common-sense approach to repair our aging infrastructure & cut all the frivolous spending in the Democrats’ $2 trillion plan. https://t.co/728xQ1NKvo
