SAN DIEGO – Gov. Gavin Newsom paid tribute Sunday to California mothers and caregivers, sharing a recent video in which he expresses gratitude for their sacrifices.

The message, shared in a noon Mother’s Day post on Twitter, called mothers “heroes.”

“I try to do my part as a parent, but my wife does a heroic amount of work,” Newsom said. “And the pressure that we have placed now — additional pressure — on caregivers and parents, particularly on women and moms, is extraordinary.”
