The Democratic governor has, for months, characterized the recall targeting his office as an effort driven by Trump supporters.
As the recall election drew closer, Newsom's campaign continued drawing comparisons between recall supporters and former PresidentDonald Trump, a strategy that intensified following the campaign launch of conservative radio host Larry Elder. On the eve of the September 14 recall, the most recent statewide polling results suggested Newsom would defeat the recall but identified Elder as the candidate most likely to replace him if the recall was successful—a factor Newsom focused on during his final days of campaigning.
Newsom is only the second governor in the state's history to face a recall election, and he's the first to defeat one. Eighteen years ago, Democrat Gray Davis was first to battle a recall election and was ultimately removed from office. Davis was replaced by Arnold Schwarzenegger, who ran as a Republican and received more votes than any of the other 134 candidates who appeared on that recall ballot.
Governor Gavin Newsom is projected to defeat the California gubernatorial recall election and stay in office for the remainder of his term.

Though the special election had one clear front-runner—Elder, who ran as a Republican—Democratic political strategists toldNewsweeknone of Newsom's challengers had the kind of familiarity among voters as Schwarzenegger had, a factor that served as
one of several differencesbetween this year's recall and that of 2003.Despite those differences, polling results released shortly after Newsom's recall election date was set suggested voters were split on the decision of Newsom's removal. The California
and several high-profile Democrats from around the country quickly rallied to Newsom's side to motivate voters and encourage turnout, all while reiterating the Newsom campaign's portrayal of the recall effort as one driven by far-right conservatives.Read more: Newsweek »
