California: Newsom Sues Secretary of State over failure to list party preference on the recall ballot

A number of stories out on the recall -- none more "own goal" than Governor Gavin Newsom suing Secretary of State Shirley Weber over the listing of his Democratic party preference on the recall ballot. Due to a change in the law in 2019, Newsom is now allowed to list his party on the recall ballot (previously, there was no party listed). However, he failed to file the paperwork that would list his party preference back in February. The lawsuit argues that the narrow timeframe allowing a party preference to be listed is arbitrary. We'll see what happens with this suit.
