California GOP Tries To Unify At Spring Convention, Looking Ahead To Newsom Recall
California Republicans gathered (virtually) this weekend for the party’s Spring Organizing Convention.
Party leaders expressed confidence that the current effort to recall Governor Gavin Newsom would make the ballot this fall, and they talked about plans to win back more seats in the state’s congressional delegation to help flip the House in favor of Republicans in 2022.
Jessica Millan Patterson also won a second term as chair of the state GOP, emphasizing party unity.
“Our California Republican comeback is just getting started,” she declared. “This fall we must — and I mean must — recall Gavin Newsom to save our great state.”
Sponsors must have close to 1.5 million signatures submitted and verified by state election officials by March 17 to trigger a recall.
The most recent report from the Secretary of State’s office shows that as of Feb. 5, the campaign had submitted 1.1 million signatures, and just over 668,000 of those have been verified.
