Pelosi says Newsom recall is ‘not good for children and other living things’

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi declared Tuesday that California Gov. Gavin Newsom is a “great governor” and that the recall election is not good for “children or other living things.”

Pelosi, D-Calif., spoke during a press conference touting the American Rescue Plan and its billions in federal emergency rental assistance when she was asked to weigh in on the upcoming special election, in which Californians will be asked to vote on recalling Newsom.

“We have to vote and we have to reject the recall,” she said.

Pelosi called Newsom a “groundbreaking” leader on progressive issues and said she’s “very, very proud” of his record.

“He’s been a great governor, and I’d like to see this, shall we say, nuisance — but it’s part of what you can do, so we respect that — but we have to also get out the vote,” she said.

“Reject the recall,” she said. “It’s not good for you. It’s not good for children or other living things.”- READ MORE
