Trump’s former intelligence chief, Richard Grenell has finally made a decision on if he will run for California governor. Grenell told Fox News host Sean Hannity that he has decided not to enter the recall race.

According to The Washington Examiner:

“The deadline is tomorrow, and I’ve made a decision not to run,” he told Fox News host Sean Hannity.

He cited two reasons: He wants to remain “available to push forward” former President Donald Trump’s “America First agenda,” and he wants to prioritize “structural change” in California “because we are headed in the wrong direction.”

Grenell, who said it will take “many years” to turn things around, referred to work he still plans to do with Fix California, his nonprofit group that has already gotten to work to “clean up” voter rolls.

Grenell served as U.S. ambassador to Germany and acting director of national intelligence during the Trump administration. He became the first openly gay person to hold a Cabinet-level position. Grenell was also a special presidential envoy for Serbia and Kosovo peace negotiations.

So far, there’s a crowded field of candidates ready to challenge Governor Gavin Newsom.

On Thursday, Los Angeles County announced it’s reimposing its mandatory mask mandate regardless of vaccination status.

  1. I would hope that Rick would want to help Elder in his campaign to replace gruesome. These are two people that know what CA needs in order to get it back on track.

  2. Ric has alot of knowledge and ability, lets hope he helps a true Conservative win the Governorship and free the people of California from their oppression under Newsom.

  3. Changing the governor without wholesale change in Sacramento will fail just like Arnold did. Without the change in Sacramento the democrats will just run out the clock.

    1. Arnold was not the strong conservative who would be able to influence other state officials. There is much more at stake now, and much more ammunition to use in setting CA on the right course, although it will definitely take a long time. Larry Elder has the energy needed and the knowledge of what is needed. With Grenell’s help he could make serious inroads against the socialist state.

      1. If not I will be leaving this place, my lifelong home heading to a RED state!! Cannot take much more of this bull!! Ridiculous being ruined by a lunatics’!!

  4. I really like what he said about helping Trump to continue his America First program and campaign!! He’d be a solid team member for Trump – and I’d love to see him in an important role!

  5. Clean up the voting Rolla in CA. 1.8 million dead people or Illegals vote in CA elections. .this needs to be fixed ASAP.

  6. I worked and lived in Bosnia, Kosovo for over 6 years and I can tell you nothing during the Clinton, Bush and Obama administration ever was accomplished. In fact conditions worsened after that fool Clinton bombed the Serbs for trying to defend their country and borders. After Trump was elected and appointed someone (Richard Grenell) who was competent with good diplomatic skills was something sorely needed. Things are actually improving now and I salute Grenell for hisservice.

  7. thank you, Mr Grenell thank God there are still some people left who can find much to do ‘behind the scenes’

  8. A team of honest Doctors, Virologists and Scientists in California went over 15000 so called “Covid Tests” Not 1 was actually Covid. Not 1 They tested them in various Universities in California. All it showed was old bacteria from flu! And Commie Newsome kept the entire State in Lockdown for so long for NOTHING
