The Recall of Gavin Newsom Just Became Official; Over 1.7M Signatures Against California Dem Governor Verified; Newsom Recall Date Could Come Soon as Counties Update Signature Totals, and related stories

The Recall of Gavin Newsom Just Became Official:
It’s now official: Democratic California Gov. Gavin Newsom will face a recall election.
The California Secretary of State’s office confirmed on Wednesday that the recall effort had met the legal requirement of 1.5 million signatures on a petition calling for Newsom to be removed.
Only 43 of the more than 1.7 million signatures added to the petition were withdrawn, with the final count exceeding the amount needed to trigger a recall election, according to Fox News.
Under California law, those who had signed were given a 30-day window to withdraw their signatures, if they so chose. That period ended on June 8.
The next procedural steps are for the state to estimate the cost of the election and set a date for the vote, which must be held within 90 days. --->READ MORE HERE

California’s effort to recall Gov. Gavin Newsom has succeeded in forcing a new election within 90 days following the validation of more than 1.5 million signatures, according to state officials.
The California Secretary of State’s Office confirmed the move Wednesday evening.
The recall petition garnered over 1.7 million signatures, of which only 43 were withdrawn, leaving the effort well above the 1.5 million threshold.
"A sufficient number of verified recall signatures had previously been reached by recall proponents in April," the Secretary of State’s office announced in a statement. "However, in accordance with California election law, voters were given a 30-day period from April 26 to June 8th to request county officials remove their signatures from recall petitions." --->READ MORE HERE
