Ex-Mayor Kevin Faulconer Mounts GOP Challenge to California Gov. Gavin Newsom

Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Ex-Mayor Kevin Faulconer Mounts GOP Challenge to California Gov. Gavin Newsom” – below is their description.

Former San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer has announced that he is running for governor of California.

Faulconer is the first major Republican to formally step into the contest as signatures are being gathered for a recall effort against Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom.

The 54-year-old centrist Republican says that California has become a failed state under Newsom, accusing him of botching such issues as homelessness and dealing with the COVID-19 crisis.

Faulconer, who headed Democratic-leaning San Diego for two terms, said last year he was considering entering the race and in January formed a committee to begin raising money for a likely run against Newsom.

Newsom’s campaign said the governor would remain focused on distributing COVID-19 vaccine and providing relief for families and small businesses while Republicans jockey for political advantage.

Faulconer would face an uphill fight in a state where Democrats outnumber Republicans by nearly 2-to-1.
