DGA Statement on Gavin Newsom’s Victory in the California Recall
DGA Chair New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham released the following statement on California Gov. Gavin Newsom’s victory in the recall election.
“Congratulations to Gov. Gavin Newsom on his victory in the Republican recall election. Gov. Newsom is a bold leader who has courageously navigated California through unprecedented crises while successfully fending off dangerous distractions by the far-right.
“Tonight, California voters chose progress over a completely out-of-touch Republican agenda. With his victory, Gov. Newsom will continue to lead based on science and facts while championing progressive policies like creating good-paying jobs, increasing access to affordable housing, funding public education, and taking action on climate change.
“The DGA was proud to be one of the earliest and largest funders of the Stop the Republican Recall effort. As we continue to fight for progress and opportunity for all, we are thankful to have Gov. Newsom as part of our strong coalition of Democratic governors.”
