California: Second recall effort targeting Governor by former Senate candidate

A second attempt has been filed to recall Governor Gavin Newsom (D), this time by Erin Cruz, who came in sixth in the US Senate primary in 2018.  The recall effort mimics an early one set up by Dr. James Veltmeyer, who lost the Republican primary for a Congressional seat in 2018. The petitions seems to be focused on immigration issues, though there are also claims of capital punishment and the cost of the state wildfires and "medicare for all." There is also a preexisting online petition led by someone else that has 42,000 signers, of which exactly zero would count to a real petition.

Petitioners would need about 1.5 million signatures to get on the ballot.
