The race is on and RedState is officially endorsing Assemblyman Kevin Kiley (R-Rocklin) to replace Gavin Newsom as Governor of the great state of California.

Although the this recall election will only be the second of its nature in California history (a victory in and of itself), many people have expressed disappointment at the lack of depth coming from Republican contenders.

For the purposes of ousting Newsom, it didn’t really matter. The recall is a simple “yes” or “no” question. Who replaces Newsom is simply a matter of tallying votes amongst the competition and awarding the governorship to whomever comes away with the most votes in that group. It doesn’t sound inspiring but in California politics it’s what we have to work with.

Until now.

On July 6th, Kiley announced his candidacy to replace Gavin Newsom and while he may not have national name recognition at this point, he is most definitely the most qualified – and yes, inspiring – candidate in the field.

It is also extremely notable that while the legislature has consistently voted for raises for themselves – even as recently as last month- Kiley rejected the 2021 raise, stating that the legislature had done nothing to earn a raise while millions of Californians have suffered loss of income and school shutdowns.

We’re told everything is going back to normal except for the amount of
