More than 70 Californians have announced their run for governor as the state’s gubernatorial approaches, with more anticipated to file for candidacy before the July 16 deadline.
Article by Vanessa Serna from our partners at The Epoch Times.
“It’s very simple to get on the ballot,” former senator John Moorlach told The Epoch Times.
California’s Secretary of State Office outlines that in order to run as a replacement candidate in a recall election, an individual must be a U.S. citizen, a California registered voter, and never have been convicted of a felony.
If a resident meets the requirements, they’re eligible to file with their county election officials and declare candidacy once receiving 65 to 100 nomination signatures and paying a filing fee of $4,194.94.
As of July 2, more than 70 candidates successfully filed to have their names on the ballot, including former San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer, and former gubernatorial candidate John Cox.
The last time a governor was recalled in California was in 2003 with Gray Davis.
In the 2003 recall election, 9.4 million voters showed up to the polls which was an 11 percent increase in comparison to the 2002 governor election.
Residents voted yes on recalling Davis by 55.4 percent and choose one of 135 candidates on the ballot to replace him.
Former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger won the election by receiving 48.58 percent of the vote with Cruz Bustamante following behind at 31.47 percent.
New Conservative Network Seeks Crowdfunding Help
They say we have to go big or go home. We’re trying to go big and bring the patriotic truth the the nation, but we need help.
Readers may or may not realize that over the past year, we’ve been bringing more conservative news and opinion outlets under our wing. Don’t take our expansion as a sign of riches; all of the “acquisitions” have been through sweat and promises of greater things to come for all involved. As a result, we’ve been able to bring together several independent media sites under a unified vision of preventing America from succumbing to the progressive, “woke,” Neo-Marxist ideologies that are spreading like wildfire across America.
The slow and steady reopening of America is revealing there was a lot more economic hardship brought about from the Covd-19 lockdowns than most realize. While we continue to hope advertising dollars on the sites go up, it’s simply not enough to do things the right way. We are currently experiencing a gap between revenue and expenses that cannot be overcome by click-ads and MyPillow promos alone (promo code “NOQ” by the way).
To overcome our revenue gap and keep these sites running, our needs fluctuate between $3000-$7000 per month. In other words, we’re in the red and hemorrhaging.
The best way you can help us grow and continue to bring the truth to the people is by donating. We appreciate everything, whether a dollar or $10,000. Anything brings us closer to a point of stability when we can hire writers, editors, and support staff to make the America First message louder. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal as well.
As the world spirals towards radical progressivism, the need for truthful journalism has never been greater. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report and the other sites in the network going.
Thank you and God Bless,
We Often Feel Like David Taking on Giants
Today’s Goliath is the Mainstream Media Industrial Complex that brainwashes the masses.
Our mission is very straightforward: To counter the false narratives and nefarious agendas destroying America today. It isn’t easy for obvious reasons; despite incredible growth over the last year we are still a very tiny fish in a huge media pond. But we’re fighting and we will continue to do so, Lord willing, for as long as we possibly can. The battle for America’s present and future is too important for us to back down to the giants that stand in our way.
We need help. I don’t want to say “desperately,” but the need is definitely great. If you have the means, please donate through our GivingFuel page, PayPal, or our brand new GiveSendGo page. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
