Californians vote to keep Democratic governor: US media projections

LOS ANGELES (HRNW) – Californians voted overwhelmingly to keep their Democratic governor Tuesday, roundly rejecting a Republican attempt to unseat him in a special recall vote spurred by mask mandates and Covid lockdowns.

Gavin Newsom handily survived an effective confidence vote that could have seen him replaced by a Republican with only minority support in one of the most liberal parts of the United States.

With more than 60 percent of the votes tallied, NBC, CNN and Fox News said that Newsom was set to prevail, with two thirds voting against the effort.

“‘No’ is not the only thing that was expressed tonight,” Newsom said in Sacramento moments after the race was called.
