Conservative talk show host Larry Elder has been endorsed by the LW Republican Club for the upcoming recall election.
“Elder, whose show is nationally syndicated, is a regular guest on Fox News. In an interview with The Associated Press, the 69-year-old attorney said he initially was reluctant to become a candidate in a state where Democrats hold a grip on power in Sacramento. However, he decided to run thanks to supporters who encouraged him, including fellow conservative radio host Dennis Prager,” according to the article.
“I know it’s a long shot,” he said, referring to Newsom’s ability to raise funds. But he said he was driven by a “fire in the belly to see if I can do something … to move the needle in the right direction,” the article said.
According to the article, Newsom’s popularity suffered from a multibillion-dollar fraud scandal at the state unemployment agency and fallout after being discovered dining out with friends and lobbyists at an exclusive restaurant last fall, while telling residents to stay home for safety.
