CNN projection: Newsom defeats recall

California Gov. Gavin Newsom survives GOP-backed recall effort and will remain in office after a majority of voters voted “no” in Tuesday’s recall election, according to a projection from the CNN Decision Desk.

California voters were asked just two questions on the recall ballot: First, “yes” or “no” on whether they want to remove Newsom from office. 

Newsom will now finish out the remainder of his term.


The Nevada County election results are here. Newsom defeated the recall in our County too. The margin was narrower than the statewide number but still decisive.

In Truckee, Measure T — a Truckee Fire Protection District measure — was winning.

  1. Another example of the useless Republican Party trying to game the system. All they have for an agenda to offer the American public is “Democrats are bad.” They have nothing else of any substantial value. Thanks again to the 12% of voters who signed the recall petitions and wasted $270 million of taxpayers dollars.
