Elizabeth Warren: ‘Trump & Republicans’ Are Attacking 'Right to Vote'
Vote ‘no’ to protect California and our democracy
Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) has blamed the recall of Democratic Governor of California Gavin Newsom on Republicans’ so-called attack on the right to vote and election results.
In a new ad for Newsom, it stated:
"Here’s the deal with the recall of Gavin Newsom.
"We’ve seen Trump Republicans across the country attacking election results and the right to vote.
"Now, they’re coming to grab power in California, abusing the recall process and costing taxpayers millions.
"Here’s how we stop them.
"Every Californian will get a mail-in ballot for the September 14th election. Vote ‘no’ to protect California and our democracy.
"Stop the Republican recall."
Newsom also cast blame on the other side of the political aisle.
“When asked by MSNBC host Ayman Mohyeldin why 25 percent of Californians remain unvaccinated in the face of a Delta variant spike, Newsom pointed to ‘misinformation by right-wing pundits, period, full stop,’” according to Politico.
“I watch them. I listen. I pay attention," Newsom said.
"They are misinforming people. They’re literally putting people’s lives at risk."
"People are dying."
"There’s been a right-wing talking point here, and it’s overwhelmingly coming from certain networks, and it’s having an impact on getting this disease behind us.”
Earlier this month, a judge blocked Newsom from being able to put his Democratic Party affiliation on the ballot.
Voters will decide if they want to remove and replace Newsome in September.
Gov. Newsom also missed the deadline to submit his party affiliation for the election.
Last month, in an effort to add it to the ballot, Newsom sued California Secretary of State Shirley Weber, who he appointed to the position.
Californians are now evenly split on whether to remove Gov. Gavin Newsom from office, according to a new UC Berkeley Institute of Governmental Studies poll co-sponsored by the Los Angeles Times.
“The findings dispel the notion that California’s solid Democratic voter majority will provide an impenetrable shield for Newsom and reveal a vulnerability created by a recall effort that has energized Republicans and been met with indifference by many Democrats and independent voters,” said the Times.
47% of likely voters support removing Newsom, while 50% oppose the move, the poll found.
Despite Newsom's handling of the pandemic with lockdowns and mandates, which has promoted his recall, he has continued to push for enhanced mandates.
Newsom also announced that coronavirus vaccines would be mandatory for state employees, or they would be obliged to undergo routine testing.
Newsom’s office said that the state also “encourages all local governments and businesses to adopt similar measures.”
Newsom even compared the unvaccinated to “drunk drivers” during a CNN interview.
“Is it time governor to bring back a universal mask mandate, regardless of vaccination status there in California?” CNN anchor Victor Blackwell asked.
“Look, we don’t even have to have that debate. If we can just get everybody vaccinated that’s not vaccinated, that’s refusing to get vaccinated, that’s living vaccine free and impacting the rest of us,” Newsom responded.
“It’s like drunk drivers.
"You don’t have the right to go out and drink and drive and put everybody else at risk, including your own life at risk.”
