SACRAMENTO, Calif. (KTXL) – With less than two weeks until California Recall Day, radio talk show host Larry Elder held his first press conference on Wednesday as other candidates have condemned some of his earlier comments.
“The reason I run has nothing to do with Roe v. Wade, has nothing to do with my attitude toward drugs,” Elder said of his previous comments on women in the workplace and his belief that federal and state governments should stop enforcing recreational drug laws.
Elder doubled his stance on drugs, saying they should be treated as a public health issue and not as a criminal justice issue. He also questioned a brand new abortion ban in Texas.
The Conservative acknowledged that there is a 0% chance of making California a lifestyle and said a similar ban is nowhere near his priority list.
“I want to do something about the rise in homelessness, I want to do something about the outrageous cost of living in California, housing prices, water shortages, about the poor forest management,” Elder explained.
Elder is one of more than 40 candidates on the campaign trail who are working to convince Californians to remove Governor Gavin Newsom from office.
Recent polls continue to show that while most Californians do not know who to choose to replace Newsom, the oldest is still the most preferred.
Meanwhile, some have already decided and submitted their votes. Political Data, Inc.’s vote tracking showed on Wednesday that 22% of ballot papers have been returned with white voters and registered Democrats surpassing other groups.
Newsom continues to urge its supporters to leave the candidate replacement section on the ballot paper.
“We’m just settling down the last two weeks,” the governor said. “We’ll bring this home.”
The governor’s campaign confirms that U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., Is to gather for the governor in Los Angeles this weekend.
