SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) – Gavin Newsom will remain the governor of California.

KRON4 followed today’s gubernatorial recall election that decided the fate of Gov. Newsom.

Californians cast their ballots to decide whether Gov. Newsom will continue to lead or if the nation’s most populous state veers in a more conservative direction amid anger over his actions during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Earlier Tuesday, Gov. Newsom made his final anti-recall campaign stop in San Francisco, where he met with volunteers who have helped get people out to the polls.

He was most recently in San Francisco for his campaign exactly one week ago, surrounded by longtime political allies like Mayor London Breed, and even past opponents. Newsom was elected mayor in 2003 and re-elected in 2007, before becoming Lt. Governor of California.
