(Los Angeles, California) The official Recall Campaign against California Governor Gavin Newsom has now gathered 2,117,730 signatures in the historic grassroots campaign to remove the highly controversial and divisive political figure.  This figure is expected to grow as all County Receipts are tallied.

Additional signature totals are still being tabulated.  More updated figures will be announced over the next several days.

1,964,203 signatures have been pre-verified from an independent third-party vendor who specializes in getting ballot initiatives to qualify for election here in California.

1,497,000 valid signatures are needed to force a special recall election per California Elections Code.

The announcement was made during an online meeting with campaign leaders and volunteers late Wednesday, March 17th.  Media members throughout the nation also watched the historic announcement.

 Orrin Heatlie, Chairman of The California Patriot Coalition, RecallGavin2020 Committee, made the following statement:

“The People have spoken.  Politics as usual in California are over as we know it to be,” said Heatlie. 

“Governor Newsom has ignored the People’s Recall for months; he can no longer put this head in the sand, “ Heatlie said.

“Under state law, the recall ballot will ask voters two questions: Do they want to recall Newsom, and if so, whom do they want to replace him.  It is that simple,” said Randy Economy, Senior Advisor and Official Media Spokesman to RecallGavin2020.

Newsom cannot appear among the recall candidates.

Lead co-proponent Mike Netter also said the following: “Governor Newsom is now having Democrats, such as Elizabeth Warren and Stacey Abrams,  as well as Bernie Sanders to attack The People’s Recall here in California, so bring it on.”

The California Patriot Coalition/RecallGavin2020 is the official committee responsible for the recall campaign.
