Times Of San Diego-
Undaunted by two recent failures, opponents of Gov. Gavin Newsom have launched a recall effort that includes a rally Sunday in San Diego.
Signature drives by GOP congressional candidates Erin Cruz of Palm Springs and Dr. James Veltmeyer of La Jolla fell well short of the needed 1.5 million verified names of registered voters.
But retired Yolo County sheriff’s Sgt. Orrin Heatlie, listed as “lead proponent” of the new recall bid, has crafted a pandemic-era strategy of 71 “community” Facebook groups, with a petition deadline of Nov. 17, 2020. Heatlie also was active in the Cruz recall drive, which sputtered in February and raised only $10,000.
