Gavin Newsom holds onto his job as California governor, CNN projects

California's Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom has defeated the effort to remove him from office, according to a projection from the CNN Decision Desk, capping off a recall effort that was born in partisan anger over his pandemic response but ended with a vote of confidence in his strategy to combat it.

Ohh so important. Hey what about the covid pandemic Aren’t foreign affairs outside state governors scope of duties? Parents in FLORIDA need to start asking questions sooner than later their babies are at stake. New disaster movie coming soon: 'DeDantis meets Nero' Let’s all have ice cream while people are sick and dying, the mans a mental midget!!

...and, there are multiple genocides going on in Asia right now, but people here want to fixate on news articles about mis-gendering microaggressions: what's your point? 🙄 As his constituents die in record numbers, DeSantis has to really reach to find culture wars issues to distract his surviving supporters.

When you have no solution to a serious crisis? Pick a culture war issue to appeal to your base! Copying TX governor Abbott. Shocking, right? You have to get your priorities straight I suppose lol Just because u r a ivy league grad, does not mean u have common sense.

DeSantis blames media for ‘hysteria’ over Covid surgeGov. Ron DeSantis lashed out at the media, accusing news organizations of engaging in “hysteria” over the new surge in coronavirus infections Rage filled tirade from Politico. I still refer to them as 'facts'. Florida residents should be afraid. They lack a leader who is committed to stopping the pandemic that's infecting and killing them by the tens of thousands. This mess is on RonDeSantis and FloridaGOP, not media.

This guy always looks like someone who’s about to go “ Duh I don’t know? “ When dealing with these types of issues. desantis is concerned with Israel not having ice cream instead of his people not having vaccines. Madness. He is going after “woke” companies. Meanwhile his entire state is trying to wake him to the reality of the covid situation. DeathDeSantis

Way to prioritize, DeathSantis Geez, I mean, they make ICE CREAM. Whatever they do, they alone are not exactly gonna bring peace to the Middle East. I appreciate their good intentions, but let's get real here. I'm tired of hearing about it. Meanwhile … Mo_Ron2024 🐴🤡 Maybe it will keep him busy long enough to run him off
