Gavin Newsom to face recall election
Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) will face a recall election later this year, California's Secretary of State confirmed Wednesday.
Why it matters: This will be the second time in California's history that a gubernatorial recall campaign has succeeded in getting on the ballot, out of a total of 55 attempts, per Bloomberg.
The state of play: The effort to recall Newsom has gained speed, with the Republican-led movement reaching enough votes in April to get on the ballot.
