Prominent California Democrat backs Republican Larry Elder over Gavin Newson in recall election

Gloria Romero, former Democratic leader in the California state Senate endorsed Republican candidate Larry Elder in a video released Monday.

“Our public schools need big change. I’m Gloria Romero; I was the majority leader of Democrats in the state senate. I believe in charter schools and school choice. So does Larry Elder — but not Gavin Newsom. He shut our public schools while he sent his kids to private schools,” Romero says in the video.

“Yes: I’m a Democrat. But the recall of Newsom is not about political party. It’s about Newsom. Larry Elder for governor,” she adds. Her endorsement comes as polls show a tossup race between Elder and Newsom ahead of the state’s Sept. 14 recall election (FOX).

Elder currently leads the pack of Republican candidates looking to replace Gov. Newsom in the Sept. 14 recall election. Elder has emerged as the frontrunner among  Republican candidates and has been sharply critical of Newsom (CP).
