Governor Newsom is easily one of the most powerful governors of one of the most powerful states (in terms of economy, progress, population, social programs, etc). As a Democrat, he holds his ground against the pathetic, petty, and hypocritical Republicans who are hellbent on destroying our Democracy as we know it. Having beat back a wasted recall election that never should’ve happened, he can devote more resources against Republican BS across the nation.
As Republicans pass voter suppression laws, anti-LGBTQ+ laws, they have finally gotten to being able to ban abortions, now that the Supreme Court is dissolving Roe v. Wade it after decades of it standing. Roe v. Wade was supposed to be codified, but ‘senator’ Joe Manchin refused to end the filibuster, allowing the 6-3 Trump majority Supreme Court to do as they please.
