CA Gov Gavin Nesom (new pic)A California-based conservative activist believes enough momentum is building to force a recall election against California Governor Gavin Newsom (D).

As of recently, RecallGavin2020, which has been spearheading the recall effort, has collected more than two million signed petitions, which is more than enough to get the measure on the ballot. The group believes Gov. Newsom has failed at his job, destroying the lives and businesses of too many hardworking Californians in the process. RecallGavin2020 cites unaffordable housing, record homelessness, rising crime, and failing schools as Newsom's failures, combined with a draconian lockdown of the population while prisons are emptied because of COVID-19.

Jesse Lee Peterson, founder and president of the Los Angeles-based Brotherhood Organization of a New Destiny (BOND), believes Newsom will ultimately be recalled.

"It's kind of a wait-and-see attitude about that, because the Democrats are learning now that they can steal an election, and they will do anything in order to do it," Peterson adds. "I believe that the folks in California are fed up with Gavin Newsom and the Democrat-controlled state, so I think they will go out and vote."

On that note, former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger recently told Politico that this recall effort is not a "power grab" from the GOP. "These are the signatures of the ordinary folks," he said, adding that "people are dissatisfied."

But even if there are no shenanigans when the vote takes place, the BOND president recognizes that California is top-heavy with Democrats, and he admits he does not know what the end result will be.

"Right now I don't see any strong Republicans in California that can run and take back the state," he laments. "Hopefully somebody will pop up, but as of this day, I don't see that person."
