    California Governor Gavin Newsom beats back GOP-led recall

    California Governor Gavin Newsom on Tuesday flatly defeated a subpoena aimed at removing him from office early, a contest drafted by the Democrat as part of a national battle for his party’s values ​​in the face of the coronavirus pandemic.

    Newsom sprang to a swift victory, bolstered by a healthy turnout in the overwhelmingly Democratic state. He described it as a victory for science, women’s rights, and other liberal causes, ensuring that the country’s most populous state remained under Democrats’ control as a laboratory for progressive politics.

    “No” isn’t the only thing that was voiced tonight, Newsom said. “I want to focus on what we said ‘yes’ as a country: we said yes to science, we said yes to vaccines, and we said yes to ending this pandemic.”
