Organizers behind the effort to recall California Democrat Governor Gavin Newsom said late on Wednesday evening that they have reached the number of signatures required to force a recall election this year.
The multi-million dollar movement to oust Newsom from office comes in response to his handling of the coronavirus pandemic.
