The required amount of signatures to recall California’s liberal Governor Gavin Newsom has officially been reached and the vote will move forward. California Secretary of State Shirley N. Weber said that the threshold of verified signatures reported by counties — set at 1,495,709 — had been met. According to the secretary of state’s office, the effort reached more than 1.6 million total signatures.

Fox News reports:

“This now triggers the next phase of the recall process, a 30-business-day period in which voters may submit written requests to county Registrars of Voters to remove their names from the recall petition,” Secretary Weber said in a statement. “A recall election will be held unless a sufficient number of signatures are withdrawn.”

If after those 30 days the effort retains enough signatories, the Department of Finance will be given 30 days to estimate the cost of the recall election, and after that a budget committee will have 30 calendar days to review those estimates before the Lieutenant Governor sets the date for the election.

The recall ballot would ask voters to choose “yes” or “no” on the question of removing Newsom from office, followed by a selection of replacement candidates. More than 50% of voters would be required to “yes” to remove him. Then, the candidate with the most votes is elected governor.

According to data from the California Secretary of State’s office, there have been 54 previous attempts to recall governors. Only one was successful – the recall of Gov. Gray Davis in 2003. Former bodybuilder and actor Arnold Schwarzenegger was selected as his replacement.

So far, former Olympic athlete and reality TV star Caitlyn Jenner, businessman John Cox, former San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer, and former Rep. Doug Ose have all thrown their hats into the political ring.

Yesterday, California Democrats were dealt another blow as census data revealed the Golden State would be losing a House seat.

  1. California, the once greatest state in the union (and could still be) has been completely destroyed by the left. Instead of realizing their error. The left is now actively engaged in spreading this same Design for Disaster to the rest of the nation. They had to steal an election to get it done. But they are well on their way to accomplishing what no foreign enemy has ever been able to do.

    1. The Founding Fathers provided a last barrier against tyranny. Its called the Second Amendment.

  2. Time to find a strong conservative Republican and make a run at the state. In today’s political climate you never know.

    1. If there is a serious recall in CA, that means there are survivors of the left’s racist agenda! Go conservatives still surviving in CA.

    2. Here is the problem: now you have Bruce (I refuse to call him and her) Jenner running for the republican spot. He murdered and innocent man in broad day light with his car and got off scott free. It would be between him and Gavin. I doubt Cox will run again with how much the Satan and his liberal media ran his poor name through the mud.

  3. They’re dragging it out, months on top of months, next they’ll find another excuse, and so on, and so on, that’s the democrook way!

  4. California needs to rid their state of the cancer of liberalism if they ever want to see it great again….stop voting for liberal Democrats!! Are you all really that stupid or are you just godless in which case the Lord with blind your eyes to your destruction! Get on your knees and give praise and glory to the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob and tear down your Hollywood idols and burn them!!

    1. They need to rid the state of all the illegals that are voting too. Send them packing to whence they came.

  5. I wonder how many petitioners would have their names unknowingly removed in order to defeat the recall. I seriously doubt that the thieving Democrats won’t use every devious method possible in order to thwart the will of the people.

    1. Let me move out first. I’m getting ready to sell, pack, and move after a life time here.
      They have taken over my once pleasant smaller town, I can’t get them out so I’ll have to go after a lifetime of living here!!! But that’s OK..

  6. So about 90 days form now Newsom could be removed. Good!!! And Caitlin Jenner wants to be governor. Don’t you mean Bruce Jenner? He is no female as proven by his genes.He has major malfunctions! He is a mixed male and is not needed in state or Federal government.

  7. I lived for decades in California. I would never live there again as long as the Democommies control the government and the jungle primary exits which leads to a guaranteed one party political system. The state has been ruined by these communists.

    1. CA…is my home state, and still holds about 3-4 generations of my family,
      but as long as the left has control of CA……I will not return, not even to visit.
      Gov. “Gruesome Newscum” has worked very hard to ruin the Farmers in
      the San Juaquin Valley by cutting off irrigation water…over a non-native
      and a very invasive fish!! That’s only a small part of his crimes against CA,
      but it’s one of the most impacting….and therefore…..highly noticeable.

  8. Gov. Gruesome needs to be thrown out of office and never be allowed to run for any public office again. He is a pure disaster! He sucked as an S.F. Council Member, as S.F. Mayor, and now Governor. This Dirtbag is so corrupt, Californians had better make certain that the Recall Election is secure and that votes are well protected. Remember, this Scumbag is Pelosi’s nephew and has Getty Oil money behind him. Believe me, a corrupt election on the Recall is already being planned.

  9. The Dems are so embedded in California because their “elections” are rigged before hand. MadMax should never have been “re-elected” since she doesn’t even live in L.A. & ‘the kid” who ran against her was a “kid” living in L.A. when she first got in! That was 30?yrs. ago? Pelosi’s San Francisco smells like a cesspool.Hollywood IS a cesspool. When’s the last time “something” came out of Hollywood that did not involve drugs, sex, crime, cop hating, incest, LBGT & Marxist leanings. The whole state is a demoralized mess of putrified,venomous brain dead humanity. Most animals could show them how to behave better.

    1. EXCUSE ME! The coast are the elitists. The further east you go the redder it gets. Why do you think Democrats made it a “Sanctuary” state when it is against the federal law? LA county has 1.6 million questionable voters. Judicial Watch forced them to clean up their voter rolls. There are 11 counties with similar problems. American citizens are outnumbered by Democrats and illegals BUT so many people have left California we may begetting a foothold to win again.

  10. Good move Cali. Keep those officials accountable in making sure nuisance is out. And get a strong red blooded conservative person in there please

  11. That dictator Gavin Nancy piglosee’d nephew is a criminal and should be on prison. Recalling him is not good enough e needs to receive the harshest punishment what he and his evil demon-rats have done to our state.

  12. Gavin Newsom is garbage. The California politicians have all but destroyed that state. If you look at the people California has elected it looks like “Roll Call” at the insane asylum.

  13. Headlines are false and just baiting the hook to tune in. I hope they really do get rid of him but there are still mountains to climb and Democrats will be blocking every move for many months.

  14. Will they ever learn? Newsom didn’t learn a thing from Gray Davis. He is about to learn though, the hard, painful, & embarrassing way. Newsom needs to go back to his vineyard & pick grapes.
