Inyo and Mono Counties Help Keep Gov. Newsom in Office

News reports, as late as two weeks ago, on Tuesday’s recall vote made it sound like Governor Gavin Newsom may need to pack a bag and head back to San Francisco. But, based on results at 10:30 last night, the votes against the recall came in at 66-percent of the total. Newsom’s safe.
The first sign, at least for political junkies, Newsom would come out on top came just an hour after the poll closed when MSNBC’s Steve Karnaki, the cable news’ political numbers guy, looked at early results from the more conservative enclaves of the state: San Diego and Orange counties. It was no contest; the “no” votes were running close to 66-percent of the early totals.
Both Inyo and Mono county voters ended up on the winning side, though the vote spread to keep Newsom in Sacramento was far wider in Mono County.
First Inyo numbers: No: 2,275; Yes: 2055. Larry Elder, who bought a lot of air time and followed the Trump political philosophy, led among the potential Newsom replacements with 1,538 votes.
Mono numbers: No: 1,945; Yes: 1,208 with Elder getting the nod from 867 of the “no’s.”
KSRW will check in with both county’s registrars to get the final numbers later this week.

The problem was that Trump 45 was RAW and Spoke from his Heart . Over the last 50 plus years many minorities in the United States have been sheltered and coddled into a sense of being so (SPECIAL) that their needs and lifestyles should take priority over the Majorities needs… Read more »

This is laughable. Trump never spoke from his heart, nor told any truths. He spoke what he though would benefit him at the moment, and often changed is statements. This is an immoral egotist and you along with many were swayed by his “tweets” and inane speeches. Sigh. Again- they… Read more »

Name one? How about two, Kennedy and Hoover both donated their salaries. That aside, yes he donated his $400,000 annual salary to various government agencies, (which are not charities.) Many of those same agencies saw their budgets cut by FAR more than what he donated to them. Meanwhile he visited… Read more »

You should issue a correction to this article. The numbers used, for Inyo at least, were the preliminary count. The final count has a different result in Inyo.

Genius move by California’s far right to trigger a no-chance-to-win-recall that forced the public to spend $260,000,000 on the election rather than spend that money on schools, hospitals, roads, bridges. Who needs that stuff anyway?

What was the alternative, Larry Elder? A Trumper who thought that slave OWNERS were owed reparations? That’s the best the Republican Party could come up with in a deep blue state? And you’re surprised by this? What a joke.

This morning the SOS is reporting Inyo went YES by less than 100 votes. Mono is still NO. There is over a month to complete the final certification, but later this week we should have the final numbers.
