Former GOP Rep. Doug Ose enters California recall race
Former Rep. Doug Ose (R-Calif.) announced Tuesday he's entering a recall election bid with the goal of ousting California Gov. Gavin Newsom.
Why it matters: Wednesday is the deadline for organizers to submit signatures for the proposed recall of Newsom. They say they have collected over 2 million signatures since last June — more than enough to put the proposal before voters, per AP.
The big picture: Ose is the third Republican to join the race after former San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer and businessman John Cox, who was easily beaten by Newsom in his 2018 election win.
- Newsom launched a campaign this week to counter the Republican-led recall effort.
