Governor Gavin Newsom will not appear as a Democrat on the ballot for his September recall election after a Sacramento judge dismissed his lawsuit Monday. Newsom filed a lawsuit in June against his carefully chosen Secretary of State, Shirley Weber, asking a judge to order California’s top election official to include his party preference in the recall vote. In response to the recall, his party preference was incorrectly not included. The court order states that the governor has not indicated his party preference in time. Currently, candidates competing against Newsom can choose to state their party preference on the ballot when submitting their declarations of participation. The recall election is on September 14. .RELATED | California Recall Candidates: Who’s Going to Replace Governor Newsom?
