The recall targeting Governor Gavin Newsom is escalating in California. Although the effort is unlikely to succeed, it has the potential to oust Newsom before the end of his first term. It comes as the California Department of Public Health officially lifted the regional stay-at-home orders that were affecting the majority of the state, and as the pandemic continues to damage the state’s economy, many residents are wondering if more relief is on the way under a new administration. President Joe Biden’s immigration plan is also expected to heavily impact the state’s economic outlook.
