If Gavin Newsom loses his recall election he is going to have some regrets.
According to Town Hall:
California’s recall election on Sept. 14 is fast approaching, and progressive Gov. Gavin Newsom said if he goes down, he’ll have major regrets about some of his recent policy decisions.
In an interview with The Atlantic, the governor acknowledged that he feels a “weight of responsibility to defeat this” and if he is recalled, he’s “going to own that.”
While he told the Sacramento Bee earlier this month that he will “not ever regret a damn thing,” he struck a different tone in the interview published on Friday.
He mentioned to me some of his recent initiatives, including the injection of billions of dollars of federal relief money into the state budget and signing a bill to expand health care to undocumented workers. “If I do fall short, I’ll regret every damn one of those decisions. And I don’t want to have any regrets for putting everything out there and doing … what I think is right and what I think is in the best interest of California.” (The Atlantic)
Newsom is polling at 50.6% of people want to keep him while 46.3% want him removed.
