Chair of Virgin Galactic and billionaire venture capitalist Chamath Palihapitiya, who has announced a plan to run in a recall, has given $100,000 to the recall effort against Newsom. Notably, rich guy bankrolling recall to run for the position did not work out well last time for Congressman Darrell Issa.
John Cox, who lost to Newsom in 2018, seems to be set to run and is (unsurprisingly) predicting that Newsom will lose the race. Again, notably, while recall reruns have worked fine for many people, not so much in Gubernatorial recalls.
Also, here's a Los Angeles Times column that is focused on me and this blog.
