WASHINGTON (Sputnik) - More than half of residents in the US state of California — slightly over 65% — voted against recalling Democratic Governor Gavin Newsom after 67% of ballots were counted, according to a projection from the CNN Decision Desk.
With more than 5.6 million California residents rejecting the recall effort, nearly 35%, or some 3 million people, sought to remove Newsom from office.

'We Said Yes to Science': Gavin Newsom Gives Remarks After Holding Off California Recall Vote
In April, California residents, upset over Newsom's lockdown and draconian measures to curb the coronavirus pandemic, as well as economic policies and other issues, gathered 1.6 million signatures on a petition to recall him. The state's Elections Office set 14 September as the date for the gubernatorial recall election.
California is the only US state that has ever succeeded in recalling its governor — in 2003, Gray Davis was replaced by actor Arnold Schwarzenegger.
