CAGOP Launches Digital Ad Campaign to Recall Governor
In addition, they highlight the billions of dollars fraudulently paid out by his Employment Development Department and the bungled vaccine roll out that puts California near the bottom of states in treating their population.
One ad shows Newsom dining at the high-end French Laundry restaurant while asking families to forgo their indoor holiday gatherings. Another shows empty playground swings to illustrate closed public schools while Newsom sends his kids to private school.
The California GOP has fully committed its resources to recalling the Governor, according to newly appointed Recall Committee Chair, Lindsey Stetson. The CAGOP has activated its 44,000 volunteer network to make over 1.1 million phone calls urging Republicans to sign the recall petition. In addition, the CAGOP has deployed its staff and field offices to support the signing, gathering and return of recall petitions.
CAGOP Chairwoman Jessica Patterson and California’s Republican National Committee members were able to generate $200,000 in additional recall funding from the RNC. $125,000 was contributed for paid signature gathering and the remaining $75,000 funded digital advertising and a texting campaign to support the signature gathering efforts.
The CAGOP has also been actively promoting the recall campaign via email and social media posts. This campaign has included 1.5 million emails as well as numerous tweets and posts on Instagram and Facebook.

Jessica Patterson Reelected as CRP Chairwoman
Bay Area’s Peter Kuo Reelected as Vice Chair; Jonathan Madison as Regional Vice Chair
by Roger Riffenburgh
At the California Republican Party’s recent online state convention, Chairwoman Jessica Millan Patterson won a solid reelection victory. She received over 62% of the delegate votes. She campaigned on her success both in partybuilding – recruiting 42,000 volunteers and raising $36 million, as well as election results – taking back four of the congressional seats that Republicans had lost in 2018. She also laid out her priorities: “This fall, we must recall Gavin Newsom to save our great state, and next year, we must retire Nancy Pelosi to save our country. That is our focus, and we will not be divided or distracted.”
Statewide Vice Chairman Peter Kuo also won reelection at the convention, with nearly 77% of the vote. Peter is a delegate from Santa Clara. Asked about his plans going forward, Peter said, “I look forward to two more years of growth of our Party’s base by attracting new immigrants, hard working middle class folks, people of faith, people who want to defend the police, people who want their children to go back to school and re-open our businesses. We the people deserve a better Governor and legislators–the Democrat Party has failed the people of California. It’s time for a real change.”
Bay Area Regional Vice Chair Jonathan Madison won a second term at the Saturday morning regional meeting with 83% of the vote. Jonathan is an attorney who lives in Alameda County. He said, “I plan to lead Bay Area Republicans into a more prominent role in the Recall Newsom effort. We need real leadership at the state and local level. It’s time for Republicans to lead that effort for our state and nation.” He also plans to continue coordinating with the six county Party chairs in the region as well as doing more of his innovative outreach events.
In the Central Coast Region, which includes Santa Cruz, Monterey, and San Benito Counties, among others, Lindsey Stetson was reelected as Vice Chair and appointed by Chairwoman Patterson to head the Recall Committee. In the North Region, which includes Napa, Sonoma, and Solano Counties, Matt Heath was reelected.
The next state convention is planned for September 24-26.
