Gavin Newsom will remain governor of California

Almost 70 percent of voters voted against the recall of the Democrat in the referendum held in the state.

California voters have spoken out against the recall of Democratic Governor Gavin Newsom.

According to data released shortly after the polls closed on Tuesday evening, almost 70 percent of voters voted against the early termination of Newsom’s powers, and only slightly more than 30 percent supported this initiative.

According to estimates by the Associated Press, CNN, and NBC News, the attempt to recall the governor failed.

Speaking to reporters on Wednesday night after the first results appeared, Newsom said he was grateful to the millions of Californians who exercised their right to vote.

The recall procedure was initiated by Republicans outraged by the strict measures that Newsom took in connection with the COVID-19 pandemic, including the closure of schools and restrictions on the operation of small businesses, including bars and restaurants.

The organizers collected enough signatures of registered voters to include the issue of recall in the ballot.
