‘Recall Newsom’ effort surpasses goal of 2 million signatures

California

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (KRON) – The effort to recall Gov. Gavin Newsom has surpassed the goal of 2 million signatures days ahead of the deadline.

Supporters say the count now is at 2,060,000 signatures, enough to offset the potential 25% rejection rate of verified signatures.

This effort needs about 1.5 million verified signatures. Of the total, the group says more than 1.8 million signatures have been pre-verified internally through an outside third-party vendor.
