Tomorrow is the recall election of California Governor Gavin Newsom so we thought it best to consult an expert. And we found the best recall election expert out there: Joshua Spivak. He’s a Senior Fellow at Wagner College’s Hugh L. Carey Institute for Government Reform, the author of Recall Elections: From Alexander Hamilton to Gavin Newsom, and runs The Recall Elections Blog. We learn the history of the modern recall, especially in California, but also in other states and countries, what is different about the recall of Gavin Newsom, his thoughts on the necessity of changing California’s recall laws, and finish discussing his book.
