Jeremy White, co-writer of Politico's California Playbook, returns to Hometown California to share his insights about the effort to recall California Governor Gavin Newsom. Our host, Paul A. Smith, RCRC Vice President for Government Affairs, dives in to find out how a gubernatorial recall—an idea that was once seen as outlying political chatter — has become a real and present threat to Governor Newsom’s political future.

  • Is this recall going to happen?
  • What are the origins of the recall effort and what makes this effort feel real?
  • Where is the money coming from?
  • Does the Governor have a strategy for overcoming this?
  • What are the political implications if the recall effort is successful?
  • Is this indicative of a national trend, or is this unique to California?
