Gavin Newsom Warns What Could Torpedo Democrats In 2024

via Fox News

Governor Gavin Newsom expressed concern about the impact of third-party candidates in the 2024 election, emphasizing the need to focus on voter turnout and control what can be controlled.

He cautioned against efforts to suppress choice and voice, suggesting that such actions could backfire.

Newsom also discussed his approach to addressing challenges posed by red state governors, indicating a shift in his perspective on the Biden administration’s efforts.

“How worried are you about a third party? There will be multiple third party candidates. So, it doesn’t take a lot. I know a third party candidate isn’t likely to be elected president, or beat either one. But I mean, how worried are you —” Jon Karl began.

“Spoilers,” Newsom cut in.

“Yeah, how worried are you about that?” Karl asked.

“I have to be, I’m worried. But you know what? You’ve got to control the controllables. Got to control what you have to control. Right now, it’s getting the vote out,” Newsom said.

“Do you think it’s a mistake then for Democrats to try to keep these third party candidates, No Labels, and the others off the ballot? We’re seeing an effort —” Karl said.

“I —” Newsom began.

“To —” Karl cut in.

“Yeah, I think when you — again, when you try to suppress choice and voice, it tends to backfire,” Newsom said.

“Especially when you’re talking about the importance of democracy, you try to keep people off the ballot,” Karl said.

“Yeah. So, I don’t get consumed by that. And I’m not here on behalf of the Biden administration thinking about that. I’m a simple guy, and —” Newsom said.

“But —” Karl said.

“But what I mean by that is I look at — for example, let’s look at No Labels. I took the time. I encouraged people to talk — look up what are they for? And I thought, wow, this literally reads as the accomplishment list of the Biden/Harris administration. So, I — they’re a solution in search of problem I respectfully submit,” Newsom said.

“You — you’ve taken on this fight with some of the red state governors, obviously, Ron DeSantis,” Karl said.

“I appreciate you noticing,” Newsom said.

“And you said you did it because you didn’t Democrats were fighting hard enough. Does that include the Biden administration? Biden —” Karl said.

“It was a year, it was a year and a half ago, and I don’t feel that way anymore. Absolutely not,” Newsom said.
