SACRAMENTO, CA – The California Democratic Party (CADEM), the nation’s largest statewide Democratic Party, announced today a contribution of $250,000 to fight against the Republican led effort to recall Governor Gavin Newsom.

“The California Democratic Party unequivocally opposes the Republican attempt to recall Governor Gavin Newsom,” stated Rusty Hicks, Chair of CADEM. “The Republican National Committee, wealthy Trump donors and right-wing extremists have joined forces to disrupt California’s road to recovery. Despite the efforts by the GOP to take us back to some of our darkest days, CADEM is prepared to mobilize our grassroots people power and make it clear to voters that the Democratic Party is the only party focused on protecting the health and safety of all Californians and their families,” continued Hicks.

The Stop the Republican Recall campaign is a diverse coalition made up of Democrats and prominent progressives including Senator Elizabeth Warren, Senator Bernie Sanders, Senator Alex Padilla, Senator Cory Booker, Congressmember Ro Khanna, Congresswoman Katie Porter, and Stacey Abrams.

“Rather than supporting California’s pandemic recovery, Republicans are choosing to shift the focus and attention away from those who need it most. Sadly, chaos is the playbook for the Republican Party – and it’s time for Democrats to unite to forcefully reject the Republican recall of our Governor,” Hicks continued.
