California governor wins recall voteWorld | AGENCE FRANCE-PRESSE 16 Sep 2021
Californians voted overwhelmingly to keep their Democratic governor, rejecting a Republican attempt to unseat him in a special recall vote spurred by mask rules and Covid lockdowns.
Gavin Newsom survived a confidence vote that could have seen him replaced by a Republican.
Newsom acted quickly as the pandemic took hold of California, ordering people to stay home and shuttering schools. But entrepreneurs blamed him for suffocating business.
