GOP’s Faulconer: Governor Newsom Failed California, Needs To Go

LOS ANGELES (AP) – Republican Kevin Faulconer formally rolled out his campaign for California governor Tuesday with a blistering attack on Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom and a symbolic flourish: He arrived in a yellow school bus to underscore the frustration of parents whose kids remain locked out of classrooms because of the pandemic. The former San Diego mayor says Newsom has bungled the state’s COVID-19 response and should reopen public schools immediately. His event Tuesday outside a shuttered Los Angeles school came as supporters of a possible recall election that could oust Newsom from office continue gathering petition signatures needed to qualify the proposal for the ballot.
