So what does it mean if Governor Newsom gets recalled?
A successful recall will force an election before Newsom’s term is up.
Voters can them remove Newsom from office through a direct vote before his term is up.
So the extension until March 17, 2021 is a massive milestone!
More details from OANN below:
The recall movement reached a new milestone as Newsom is aiming for a new shelter in place order.
Local CBS Sacramento confirms the monumental “Recall Newsom” campaign:
California’s looming restrictions based on regional intensive care unit capacities are reigniting an effort to recall Governor Gavin Newsom.
Many Sacramento area business owners are now backing the campaign. The campaign was born in June of this year and now has half of the signatures it needs to call for a special election by March.
Small business owners said Newsom’s latest decision was the last straw.
“It’s hard on everyone,” said Crystal Mitchell.
Mitchell was emotional talking about her business, Salon Cuvee, which opened one year ago. The impending stay-at-home order may be a death sentence to her shop.
“How are we going to get through it this time?” Mitchell said.
Inside the salon, you’ll see a sign and petition. Hairstylist Diana Ciocan has been going to neighboring businesses and clients to rally for support to remove Newsom from office.
Ciocan volunteers for the campaign 10 to 12 hours a week. She said more small business owners are joining the movement and getting vocal about it.
“My livelihood is at stake once more, so we need you to sign,” she said.
Orrin Heatlie created the campaign in June.
“They’re not happy with the way he’s managing this state,” he said.
Heatlie called it a non-partisan effort that’s heating up – in part because of support from frustrated small business owners.
“It’s grown exponentially ever since his French Laundry debacle where he attended the birthday party,” he said.
The last time California recalled a governor was in 2003 with Gray Davis, who was replaced by Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Backlash against Newsome continues to grow exponentially in California.

Citizens of California are fed up with Newsom’s draconian policies.
But even worse, Newsom has been a hypocrite.
It appears to be a classic case of rules for thee but not for me.
The New York Post did an interview with a restaurant owner who called Newsom an “a**hole”:
The readers of the New York Post aren’t the only people fed up with hypocritical politicians.
Chef Andrew Gruel said he will keep his LA eateries Slapfish and Big Parm open despite the recent ban on outdoor dining, while slamming California Gov. Gavin Newsom and other hypocritical politicians saying: “I’m not an a–hole – the governor is!”
Newsom has been on the defense ever since he dined maskless and indoors with lobbyists at the tony French Laundry restaurant the same week he warned against Thanksgiving gatherings.
In a video posted Thursday to Twitter, noting “My message for all the haters. Please share the logic. Sorry, haven’t had a haircut since March,” the fed up Gruel said he’d been getting slammed online for keeping his restaurant open and said: “I’ve got everybody blowing up my replies saying I’m a grandmother killer so I’m just gonna address it all right here.”
The frustrated small business owner continued, saying: “Here’s the situation – do we take the pandemic seriously? Of course we do! Am I saying we shouldn’t close outdoor dining? Yes, I am. “
Gruel, who like other restaurateurs struggling to stay open, has bent over backward trying to keep his customers safe at his own expense.
“At every single juncture from the beginning until today we have listened to all of the advice from our government officials only to be shut down over and over and over again and then not compensated for the elements we put in place for our businesses to protect our customers,” Gruel said.
“We shut down indoor dining – no problem. I got a warehouse full of plexiglass right now. We went outdoors – now that’s getting shut down. I just put thousands of dollars into outdoor heaters.”
Gruel’s gripe stem from the lack of scientific evidence linking COVID-19 to outdoor dining.
“There is zero scientific evidence that outdoor dining is contributing to the rise in cases related to this,” he claimed, adding that he was frustrated because people are still allowed to shop or fly on airplanes (in enclosed spaces) but not eat outdoors while socially separating.
“I am only saying we can continue to dine outdoors because I can get on an airplane and I can fly and eat and do whatever I want – and don’t tell me it’s the HEPA filters because that’s not the case. You don’t turn those on until you get on to the plane. Until then everybody’s fornicating on top of each other,” Gruel said. “I can go into Walmart — nobody wears a mask at Walmart! I can get a pink cockatoo for my Christmas tree but I can’t go and dine outdoors at a restaurant. I can go to Target, Amazon is making tons of money — all big business is getting rich. OK! Outdoor dining does not lead to (COVID). Therefore, screw that — we’re staying open. Outdoors. It’s that simple. I’m not an a–hole — the governor is!”
In a follow up Twitter video on Friday titled “Another update from the mind of a business owner being shutdown,” Gruel continued — this time slamming not just Newsom, but San Francisco Mayor London Breed, LA County Supervisor Sheila Kuehl and other politicians for their shameless hypocrisy and “virtue signaling.”
Breed was caught at the French Laundry — a $450-a-plate restaurant — just one night after Newsom, while Kuehl voted to ban outdoor dining in Los Angeles County yet hours later ate outdoors at a Santa Monica restaurant.
“Heres a quick update on my thought process,” Gruel fumed. “We’re being told we cant have people dine outdoors yet … Governor Gavin Newsom is banning dining indoors after he dines indoors with 22 people. He’s banning groups of more than four or five people when once again, he was with 22 people indoors. He’s… virtue signaling tweets out there about eating with a mask on and putting a mask on in between bites when he and those 22 people weren’t even wearing masks. They were basically slobbing (sic) all over each other!
Will the Recall Newsom campaign succeed?
Time will tell.
But one thing is certain.
California citizens are fed up with Governor Newsom!

Just a reminder (as many seem to be forgetting this) this photo of Gavin Newsom dining indoors with 22 people, without masks, not socially distancing, was taken AFTER he banned indoor dining and groups of this size. He lied about it the next day then the photos were revealed. pic.twitter.com/3Ho0Tmpw6n

. @GavinNewsom also said he was there for a friend’s birthday – then we found out he was with a lobbyist.
Did any Sacramento “reporter” ask who paid? And did Gavin report the lobbyist dinner? https://t.co/kGQEA5jHXh
