State Senator Steve Glazer (D) suggests that the Democrats should try to get the recall done early, as the numbers favor Newsom. I throw some cold water on this idea (and maybe will write an op-ed). Newsom's big money advantage is still to come -- why not extend the air war as long as possible.
Richard Louis Brown, the new President-elect of Service Employees International Union Local 1000, California's largest state employee union, said that the union won't back Newsom in the recall after union contract concessions fueled his victory (specifically, Brown said that "we're going to run his ass out of office"). The union board still has to vote on that.
