Former California Governor Gray Davis Has a Message for Newsom

Former California Governor and Loeb Of Counsel Gray Davis spoke to Politico about the recent September 2021 recall election of current California Governor Gavin Newsom.

Davis, in an interview with Politico days before the recall vote, was circumspect about the recall process that has now resulted in two California governors facing a race for their political lives in less than two decades. Activists circulate recall petitions against every sitting governor, but so far, they have only caught fire — and money — against two governors.

“A recall election is a strange duck," Davis said. “It’s different ... and this one is being held at a time when a lot has been asked of Californians — to get inoculated, to wear masks, to social distance, to safely send your child back to school. There’s a lot going on. So, I am not popping any champagne corks, I just think you have to keep the pedal to the metal through election night, and just see how it turns out.”
