Opponents of the Anti-Union Recall

A broad coalition of endorsers are fighting back against the right-wing Recall that is funded by anti-union millionaires and radical Trump supporters. Opponents of the recall agree this is nothing but a Republican power grab intent on replacing the governor with an extremist pro-Trump who will roll back the clock on California’s worker protections.

JOE BIDEN

“Governor Newsom is leading California through unprecedented crises. He is a key partner in fighting the pandemic and delivering economic relief to working families and helping us build our economy back better than ever. Registered California voters should vote no on the recall election by September 14 and keep California moving forward.”

KAMALA HARRIS

“California, voting is underway! Let’s keep Gavin Newsom fighting for Californians in Sacramento and keep the state and nation moving forward.

Vote NO on the recall. Sign your envelope and return your mail-in ballot or vote in person by September 14.”

BERNIE SANDERS

“At this unprecedented moment in American history when we’re trying to address the crisis of climate change, guarantee health care for all, and pass real immigration reform, the last thing we need is to have some right-wing Republican governor in California. The September 14th recall of Governor Newsom is a bold-faced Republican power grab. Don’t let it happen.

Please return your ballot or vote NO in person by September 14th. Thank you.”

ELIZABETH WARREN

“No one has fought harder than Gavin Newsom to keep Californians safe during the pandemic. While Trump made the pandemic worse, Gavin’s actions saved countless lives and delivered billions in relief to help families and small businesses weather the storm. Now the same Republican, pro-Trump forces who lost the White House are trying to recall Gavin and install a Trump protege in the Governor’s office. Democrats — we have to have Gavin’s back. Join me in stopping the Republican recall.”

ALEX PADILLA

“Whatever you do, please DO NOT sit on the sidelines for this radical, right-wing recall effort. If you haven’t already, between now and September 14th, VOTE NO on this attempted Republican power grab. The threat is VERY REAL.”

BARACK OBAMA

“Hello Californians! You’ve got a big choice to make by September 14th. Governor Newsom has spent the past year and a half protecting California communities. Now, Republicans are trying to recall him from office and overturn commonsense COVID safety measures for health care workers and school staff. Your vote could be the difference between protecting our kids and putting them at risk, helping Californians recover, or taking us backwards. Protect California by voting NO on the Republican Recall.”

DORLORES HUERTA

“We can’t forget how the last recall brought us a governor who used ballot measures to attack the rights of workers and vetoed efforts to establish universal health care for all Californians. The Republicans know they can’t win a regular statewide election. So, they are trying to rig the system with this recall to block critical health care reforms, deny immigrants their rights and delay the progressive changes we need to make California a better place for everyone.

We have farm and food workers risking their lives and dying in shocking numbers to feed people across the country. Our focus needs to be on protecting the vulnerable, ramping up vaccinations, safely re-opening our schools and getting Californians safely back to work. The last thing we need is this right-wing recall.”
