I don’t understand what Newsom is doing. Is he setting himself up as a shadow candidate in case a Biden replacement is (unlikely) needed? If he would outright support and campaign for Biden, we’d have this in the bag.
Newsom humiliates DeSantis on Fox News California Gov. Gavin Newsom not only stood up for his state but made a great case for Joe Biden on Fox News
‘You #demean and #humiliate’. Florida's #DontSayGayLaw was discussed alongside the state's numerous book bans, with DeSantis holding up a copy of Maia Kobabe's "#GenderQueer: A #Memoir" by at one point. Newsom blasted DeSantis for using “#education as a #sword for your #cultural #purge”.

The action, which housing advocates allege violated a court injunction, was celebrated by right-wing figures and the tech crowd.

But also funny that #GavinNewsom finally clears out the sidewalks of homeless people to make the state look better, and then this happens.
Here's my #LeftistResponse to @gavinnewsom the @cagovernor about how much he actually cares about Californians. Give it a read and I encourage you to also respond to his hand being out in the same way. 🧊 🔥
Yikes! The San Francisco Chronicle reports on the Biden-Harris mega-donor who pushed Gavin Newsom to veto California's groundbreaking anti-caste discrimination bill.
Gavin Newsom’s Prison Reform Isn’t Progress—It’s a ‘Near Enemy’
By Emile Suotonye DeWeaver
Californians have been demanding a course correction away from mass incarceration for over a decade, and earlier this year, Governor Gavin Newsom announced his “California Model” for the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR), an ill-defined set of proposals sold as a ...

Governor Gavin Newsom signed a pair of bills that will make it easier to force people into treatment. Experts say it could make the overdose crisis worse.

Your latest #ClimateLens podcast is LIVE. Things are hectic, you might've missed #GavinNewsom's California lawsuit but Big Oil surely didn't. We spoke with West Coast Environmental Law's Andrew Gage of the #SueBigOil movement in BC
#California governor #GavinNewsom signs a new law banning red dye No. 3 and other harmful food additives, making California the first state in the U.S. to do so. The law, which affects popular products like #Skittles, addresses health concerns similar to #EU standards, aiming for improved public health safety. Implementation will begin in 2027, potentially influencing nationwide product formulations due to California's economic impact.
Governor Gavin Newsom Signed Shield Law Protecting CA Health Practioners Who Provide Medication #Abortion & Gender-Affirming Care to Out-of-State Patients
With thanks to California Senator Nancy Skinner (@nancyskinnerca) for authoring this bill, and Governor #gavinnewsom for signing it:
As of this post, #gavinnewsom has not yet signed AB 645, Vehicles: speed
safety system pilot program which would allow 5 California cities to pilot speed cameras under strict operating protocols. Cities that are trying to reduce traffic fatalities arising in part from excessive speed. I don't understand why; this seems like an easy one to approve

California governor vetoes caste discrimination bill, calls it 'unnecessary'
Activists in the state are dealt a blow as Gavin Newsom says the state’s laws already offer civil rights protections.
I’m so pissed that Gavin Newsom vetoed the bill banning caste-based discrimination.
This is the definition of a Pyrrhic victory. “Hindu” lobby groups have convinced the public and politicians that Hinduism is inherently bigoted:
“But opponents of the bill said it unfairly targets Hindus because caste is a part of their religion. “
for some reason Governor #gavinnewsom has not signed AB645 - Vehicles: Speed Safety System Pilot Program - which would allow a Speed Camera pilot program in 5 cities that have asked for this. Please let him know at https://www.gov.ca.gov/contact/ that you want him to sign AB645 - that pedestrian safety is important (and it will lower the damage in vehicular collisions as well)
A group of two dozen Democrat and Republican leaders, cities, and think tanks are petitioning the Supreme Court to undo protections for the unhoused.

Dear Demnocrats and Reporters: Can we please move on from criticizing #GavinNewsom for his appointment which was going to piss some group off no matter what he did...I think he kept his promise & did fairest thing for current candidates. Now MOVE ON...there are much bigger hills to climb to save this democracy FFS.
He quickly appointed someone who is a champion for women and labor who will serve us well in the Senate and maintain the majority. MOVE THE FUK ON.

The point above seems to have passed some people by, so let me clarify: we have increasingly more fascists running as Democrats, and some of them are *very popular* Democrats, despite being, at heart, fucking #fascists. See #GavinNewsom not signing a bill to pay unemployment to striking workers because "there's no money for that" right after "investing" over a quarter billion dollars on cops to persecute homeless people.
This thread by Alec Karakatsanis is full of receipts of frankly alarming behavior from California's Democratic Governor, #GavinNewsom; given that he has presidential ambitions, it's really worth paying attention to all the #fascist shit he endorses--especially when it comes to "crime".
In the past few months we've seen THREE high profile Democrats switch parties as soon as they've won an election, lets try to avoid that shit:
Governor #GavinNewsom has signed a bill banning school boards from rejecting textbooks based on their teachings about contributions of people from different racial backgrounds, #sexual orientations & gender identities. He says the measure is “long overdue.”
#Florida Gov. and #Republican presidential candidate #RonDeSantis (R) and #California Gov. #GavinNewsom (D) have agreed to participate in a televised #debate in November that will be moderated by #FOXnews host #SeanHannity.
The debate, which will air on Fox during Hannity’s 9 p.m. prime-time program, will take place Nov. 30, the network said.
"We shined a light on a long-hidden form of discrimination thousands of years old, invisible shackles on the wrist of millions of people," said Ms Wahab, who is the first Muslim and Afghan-American woman elected to the state legislature…
“Some Hindu groups argued the caste system is not a serious issue in North America.
“Some Dalit (formerly untouchables) activists have dismissed those claims, saying they have experienced discrimination from people of a privileged caste.
“In 2020, the technology company Cisco was sued by the state after two high-caste Indian managers allegedly discriminated against a Dalit engineer, paying him a lower salary.”
#GavinNewsom has real skin in the financial effects of the #SAGAFTRAstrike and #WGAstrike. The last writer's strike cost the state of #California $2 billion, and the budget already accounted for a $31 billion deficit due to changes in tech, another big Golden State industry.
If he does, I hope he'll ensure #AuditionPay is remunerated as specified in our existing contract.
He is calling for— raising the minimum age to purchase firearms from 18 to 21, implementing universal background checks, instituting a “reasonable” waiting period for gun purchases and preventing civilians from buying “assault weapons.” #guns #GunViolence https://thehill.com/homenews/state-watch/4040200-california-governor-proposes-constitutional-amendment-to-restrict-access-to-guns/
California is investigating whether Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis was involved in flying asylum-seekers from Texas to Sacramento.
“@RonDeSantis you small, pathetic man. This isn’t Martha’s Vineyard,” Newsom said in a tweet on Monday. “Kidnapping charges? Read the following,” he continued, attaching both a link and screenshot of #California legislature’s kidnapping ordinance. “
3/ And kudos to my governor:
“CEO of Target Brian Cornell selling out LGBTQ+ community to extremists is a real profile in courage. This isn’t just a couple stores in the South. There is a systematic attack on the gay community happening across the country,” Newsom wrote in a tweet. https://thehill.com/homenews/4018653-newsom-knocks-target-ceo-for-pulling-lgbtq-merchandise-from-stores/
#ElonMusk announced during a joint press conference with California Gov. #GavinNewsom that Tesla would be opening a global #engineering headquarters to California, two years after a dramatic exit that saw the electric car company leave the Golden State for a facility in #Austin, #Texas.
Tesla will open up shop in the former home of Hewlett Packard in #PaloAlto, Musk said.
