Governor Newsom Shoring Up Support To Oppose Recall Effort
(Sacramento, CA) — California Governor Gavin Newsom is circulating his own petition to oppose the recall effort. It’s not an official petition. Rather, it part of Newsom’s effort to shore up support among his backers, collect data for political contributions and use the results to defeat the recall. Many campaigns, political action groups, and even political parties ask supporters to sign unofficial petitions. Some political watchers think the practice is misleading, but others say petitions are about getting commitments from voters before a ballot measure sees the light of day.
