Republicans are already claiming fraud. This is from a website paid for by Elder’s campaign.

"statistical analyses used to detect fraud in elections held in 3rd-world nations (such as Russia, Venezuela, and Iran) have detected fraud in California resulting in Governor Gavin Newsom being reinstated as governor."

First they wasted over $200 million of tax payer money setting up a recall one year before elections. Now they are saying the election is fraudulent.

Of course they're claiming fraud. Their policies and leadership are wildly unpopular, so they've lost all chance of winning elections in progressive states and are quickly losing ground in strongholds like Texas. They have to resort to voter suppression and claims of fraud if they want to continue their minoritarian rule.

Be warned, their faux news brainwashed minions will be along shorty to scream about hunter biden, fake pandemics, and how California is a failed state. Fake controversy and vitriol are all they have left.
