California Voters Reject Recall Effort for Newsom

Sacramento, Calif. (AP) -- Californians voted to keep Gov. Gavin Newsom in office on Tuesday, ending a statewide recall election that saw some Republicans again float unfounded claims of voter fraud.

That language was lifted from a petition circulated to help former President Donald Trump's effort to overturn last year's presidential election results.
