Recall Gavin 2020

February 11th, 2021, 7:15 pm

A new thread to follow this event.

The first milestone, which requires approx 1.5 million signatures by March 17, 2021 to trigger a 2021 special election, looks very likely to be reached

More as things develop ...

RecallGavin2020 reaches 1.5 million checkpoint ...

With one month to go, should mean a very nice safety margin in the final count!

So, as expected, the recall will make it to the ballot.

Very favorable to the governor is the covid situation in California: excellent stats and the state will open up "fully" on June 15.

There are infrastructure issues that could still bring him down (the utilities turn off people's electricity for fire risk), and legacy covid response issues such as the unnecessary loss of many small businesses due to excessive lock-downs. But, my guess at this point in time is that he will survive the recall.
