Midterm elections 2022 are here, and you may be surprised that California Governor Gavin Newsom is up for reelection.
You could be forgiven for not knowing since most of California is laser-focused on the hotly contested LA mayor race.
But as it turns out, Gavin Newsom is running against someone named Brian Dahle.
Dahle is a farmer from Lassen County who carved his name into a cornfield trying to get recognition out there. But it doesn’t seem to be working. Ask most Californians who Newsom is running against, and many people will say, “I didn’t realize he was running this year.”
Does that mean Newsom is a lock for reelection? Given how far left California tends to lean, Dahle has a serious uphill battle.
I’m a dem and I voted for Brian. Had too. Sorry man.
