Gubernatorial candidate Gavin Newsom votes in Larkspur

Bay Area

California Democratic gubernatorial candidate Gavin Newsom has cast his ballot in Tuesday’s election.

Newsom arrived at a Masonic lodge in Larkspur, north of San Francisco, with his wife Jennifer and four children. Newsom held his 2-year-old son Dutch most of the time he was at the polling site, including while he was filling out his ballot.

He told reporters that he hopes to win the governor’s race but that it wouldn’t mean as much if Democrats don’t take back the U.S. House.

Newsom says it’s not a “gross exaggeration to say that Trump’s declared war on California” and urged voters in the state to make it to the polls Tuesday.

Newsom is the strong favorite to win the governor’s race against Republican John Cox, who’s never held elected office.
