OAKLAND, California – The White House publicly stated Tuesday that President Joe Biden is opposed to the recall of California Governor Gavin Newsom, signaling that the campaign is increasingly attracting national attention.

Opportunity to consider earlier in the day, White House spokesman Jen Psaki said he “did not talk to the president about the recall” and said the Biden government “worked closely [Newsom] and his office ”on a number of issues. He was more powerful in a follow-up tweet.

“In addition to sharing commitment on a number of issues @GavinNewsom from tackling the climate crisis to keeping the pandemic under control, @POTUS is clearly opposed to efforts to recall @GavinNewsom, “Psaki tweeted.

Newsom officials did not answer the question of whether the California governor’s team contacted the Biden administration to take a position on the recall. Newsom joined the other governors to brief the coronavirus vaccination earlier in the day.

Efforts to drive Newsom away from a long-fired conservative dream in recent weeks have become a direct threat as organizers get closer to collecting the required 1.5 million valid signatures by mid-March. Frustration with Newsom’s coronavirus treatment spurred up the recall momentum and worsened the Democratic governor’s approval rating in two polls released last week.

Attention was drawn from national donors, the press and political actors. The recall effort was recorded by Fox News, in addition to criticism of Newsom’s pandemic restrictions.

While most of the campaign’s relatively tight budget so far has come from California donors, former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee recently stepped in and joined President Donald Trump’s famous California supporters. Republican National Committee Chairman Ronna McDaniel weighed in last week, suggesting the national party could join the California Republican party to support the pressure, although it inferred the inaccurate approval rating from much lower than last week’s polls.

Newsom firmly declined to discuss the recall and again resolved an issue on Tuesday by focusing on fighting the coronavirus. But California Democrats have mobilized to protect the governor and have repeatedly praised Newsom’s praise at press conferences in recent weeks.

“I think he acted in good faith and in his heart in the best interests of California. He did nothing close to justify the recall campaign. , Said Senator Steve Glazer, a Democrat who has occasionally criticized Newsom for introducing fairly strict coronavirus rules. He also called on the people of California to refuse to sign the “Distraction and Destruction Fool’s Case”.
