Today is the Recall Election in California, where residents will have the opportunity to decide if Governor Gavin Newsom will stay in office. Keep in mind, this is only the fourth recall election in U.S history. Today is a really big deal and will shape the future of the COVID-19 response and more for all Californians. Many are wondering how did this happen? According to multiple reports, it has to do with how Newsom handled COVID-19 in the beginning stages, people were not happy that he shut the state down. His opponents went out and got signatures to make the recall election official.
Fast forward to today, Californians will make the choice between Gavin Newsom or Larry Elder. Newsom has tons of celebrities and even President Joe Biden supporting him, while Elder has less than savory people rooting for him to win. Elder is mostly known for his habitual line crossing when it comes to racism in America, which is very odd since he is a Black man. He's supported slave-holders receiving reparations, wrote a book calling Black men stupid, and the cherry on top is him supporting George Zimmerman shooting and killing Trayvon Martin.
But today, Uncle Steve and the crew let Larry Elder have it, and rightfully so. We have to keep Newsom in office and people like Larry Elder out.
Go vote, California!
