Vote No on the Recall: Based on Lies to Steal Your Vote
In 2016, we elected Josh Newman, a United States Army veteran, community leader and successful businessman, as our State Senator. Six months later, the same special interests and extremists who opposed Josh’s campaign began trying to remove him from office — with a costly, misleading and unnecessary effort that isn’t in the best interest of our communities.
The truth about the recall is:
- It’s a boondoggle that is costing $1 million in taxpayer money
- It’s based on lies and meant to steal your vote
- Its proponents have been purposely misleading voters — which is why it is being investigated for fraud
- It will not help repeal the gas tax as proponents promised
- It’s an attempt to overturn the 2016 election and replace our democratically elected State Senator
- It would wipe out your vote – and the vote of over 160,000 of your neighbors
- It was led by a San Diego politician and radio shock jock whose career was halted because of sexual misconduct to reestablish his own career
- It is a partisan power grab by extremists and special interests
Join a bipartisan coalition of voters, veterans, families and more in voting NO on the Recall.
