Final Candidate List Released for Newsom Recall

California Secretary of State Shirley Weber has released the final list of 46 candidates who qualified for the upcoming gubernatorial recall election. 

The recall election seeking to remove Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom will take place on Sept. 14, 2021. 

Among the candidates that qualified were nine Democrats and 24 Republicans, including Caitlyn Jenner, former San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer, 2018 gubernatorial candidate John Cox, former U.S. Rep. Doug Ose, and Larry Elder, a Libertarian talk radio host.

The recall election will present voters with two questions. The first will ask whether Newsom should be recalled from the office of governor. The second will ask who should succeed Newsom if he is recalled. 

A majority vote is required on the first question for the governor to be recalled. The candidate with the most votes on the second question would win the election, no majority required.

According to Ballotpedia, there have been 55 attempts to recall an incumbent California governor since 1911. 

The only successful recall campaign was in 2003 when voters recalled then-Gov. Gray Davis, a Democrat. 

Arnold Schwarzenegger, a Republican, was chosen as Davis’ replacement. In that election, 135 candidates ran and the winner received 48.6% of the vote, Ballotpedia said.
