A Republican-led bid to recall Gov. @GavinNewsom of California ended in defeat late Tuesday, as Democrats in the nation's most populous blue state closed ranks against a small grass-roots movement that accelerated with the spread of Covid-19.
@ShawnHubler@nytimes@GavinNewsom Tough times require tough choices from people who know how to lead, not from phantasmagorical talk show hosts. Newsom made some substantial personal blunders while in office, but he's also led California with strong vision and civic courage. The state's Covid results are proof.
