9 Reasons to Vote No on the Newsom Recall Even If You Hate Newsom
The Recall Gavin Newsom election is less than a month away, and you probably already have your mail-in ballot. The whole recall is bankrolled by just a few wealthy Republicans, and that’s just one of the reasons you should vote No on the recall. But consider these nine other absolutely terrible things that would happen to the state of California if Gavin Newsom were recalled as governor.
YOU WILL HAVE A TRUMPER AS GOVERNOR
Republicans in Gavin Newsom recall say they’d end California COVID vaccine requirements https://t.co/RaVkjsiZWw

ALL THE REPUBLICANS ARE ANTI-VAXX AND ANTI-MASK
You want Florida and Texas-level death rates from COVID-19? Because that’s what you get with these Republican replacements, all of whom oppose mask and vaccination requirements.
Project Homekey—championed by @GavinNewsom—has allowed CA to convert motels, hotels & more into much-needed housing. In the Bay Area, we’ve invested $200M into 20 projects.

NEARLY 10,000 WILL BECOME PEOPLE HOMELESS OVERNIGHT
There are currently about 8,500 people who have a roof over their head thanks to Newsom’s Project Homekey, which rents hotel rooms for unshoused people during COVID. Those people will be out on the street if Republicans win the recall.
YIKES — Larry Elder, the conservative candidate considered to have the best chance of defeating Gavin Newsom in the California recall vote, opposes the existence of any minimum wage.
“The ideal minimum wage is $0,” Elder says.https://t.co/fHk9mOoZnK

MINIMUM WAGE WOULD BE $0
“The ideal minimum wage is $0,” Larry Elder recently said. And you know what? That’s exactly what that asshole would do, and many of you reading this would have your wages slashed.
So much at stake for CA’s environment in the Newsom recall election. Please vote “No”.
‘If Newsom is booted from office, many policies could be overturned: a moratorium on offshore oil drilling, orders phasing out fracking & plans to preserve open space.’ https://t.co/saXwc1MaBl

WILDFIRES AND GLOBAL WARMING WILL GET WORSE
Fracking and oil drilling will be out of control under a Republican, and Larry Elder has called global warming “a crock.”
As millions of kids return to school for in-person instruction this month in California, they'll get a free lunch EVERY day! 🥪

6 MILLION KIDS WILL GO HUNGRY
More than six million kids get free meals under a program Newsom initiated last month. That comes to a complete halt under a Republican governor, and literally millions of children will go hungry.
If the Republican recall succeeds, Larry Elder has said he will repeal CA’s vaccine requirements for health care workers and teachers, reversing Gov Gavin Newsom’s efforts to protect kids from the Delta variant.

KIDS WILL DIE OF COVID-19
Every Republican in the race says they will repeal the teacher vaccination mandate. That means more COVID in schools, putting unvaccinated children under 12 at an enormous risk.
Thx to Gavin Newsom's leadership, CA is *only* state to have seen a decrease in COVID cases over last 14 days.
They work: aggressive vaccine roll out, vaccine mandates, mask mandates, etc

COVID-19 WILL GET MUCH WORSE
California is the only state in the U.S. where case counts have gone down in the last two weeks. That will not be the case with a Republican governor, who will probably get COVID like Trump and Ron DeSants, and still not learn their lesson.
It's the Democrats' doomsday scenario: California Gov. Gavin Newsom loses his recall race this fall, and a Senate vacancy is later filled by a GOP governor. https://t.co/c1PfxBde0k

IT COULD GIVE THE SENATE TO REPUBLICANS
Ancient alien Dianne Feinstein could keel over any second, and a Republican governor would pick a Republican replacement. That gives the Republicans the Senate, and monster Mitch McConnell would be back in power.
