To the editor: Harold Myerson suggests that “the way to defeat the recall is to show what happens to California under the Republican Party, which the Democratic Party governs in the spirit of Donald Trump.” (“”Democrats need to scare voters to vote to fight Newsom’s recall, “Opinion, August 2nd)
The former president is not responsible for growing homeless populations, the country’s highest petrol prices, unreliable power grids, devastating wildfires, or poor public schools.
Bad Democratic rule has hurt the Golden State, so it may be time to end one-party rule.

To the editor: I have one question for Republicans running for Governor of California. that is:
“If Donald Trump calls you and asks who he thinks won the 2020 presidential election, what would you tell him?”
I expect many of them to dodge the question.

To the editor: I don’t support recalls, but another reform of the recall process seems to be to replace the recalled governor with an already elected vice-governor.
Why does the California Constitution require a different person to be elected in the event of a recall, even though the Constitution of California provides for a deputy governor to replace the governor who resigns early?
Those elected by recall will probably only get multiple votes. Perhaps even a small vote, the vice-governor has already been elected by a majority across the state.
