California vote seen as a much-needed endorsement of Biden's presidency
Faced with burning issues of a surging covid pandemic gone out of control, the hurricane devastation in south-east, unprecedented wildfires engulfing the western region, and the legacy of an exploding Afghan imbroglio that almost consumed his presidency, the California vote has come as a booster for President Biden.

SACRAMENTO, Sept 15: Democratic California Governor Gavin Newsom survived recall efforts on Tuesday after a majority of voters voted "no" in the election.

"I am humbled and grateful to the millions and millions of Californians that exercised their fundamental right to vote," Newsom told reporters.

“I want to focus on what we said yes to as a State: We said ‘yes’ to science, we said ‘yes’ to vaccines, we said ‘yes’ to ending this pandemic,” the Governor said.

He will have to face another election so soon next year if he wants to keep his seat as his term comes to an end and there will be election to the office. He is in office since January 2019.

The present recall petition was one of six circulated by the Governor's opponents to remove him since he took office in January 2019.

The vote may be interpreted as an endorsement of Democrats' covid restrictions and the first test of popular support for President Biden against a perceived revival of Republican wave led by the unpopular ex-President Donald Trump especially as the mid-term elections are due next year. Of course, Democrats outnumber Republicans in California by half.

The most populous California's electorate is diverse but that did not help the African-American Larry Elder as the Democrats are too many. He made a compromise statement: “Let’s be gracious in defeat.” And that was a far cry from the vitriol he was firing earlier. Even during the campaign and while voting was on, the Republicans insanely levelled allegations of voter fraud, reinventing Trump's propaganda of Biden "stealing' his votes in the last presidential election, bordering on an abnormality.

Newsom has won despite an adverse environment created by raging wildfires and a rampaging pandemic.
