How much did the election cost taxpayers?

Elections are not cheap, especially in a state like California where the operation requires several millions of people to vote. The state has said that the election cost around 215 million dollars and with Newsom winning by such a large margin, many are wondering if it was worth the price tag.

Which candidate would have replaced Newsom?

While Newsom's victory was clear from the beginning. Larry Elder also garnered the majority of votes in every county in the state. If Gov. Newsom would have cost the recall it would have been Elder to replace him in the Governor's mansion.

While Republicans thought that Elder would be able to rile up the base, he did not. In a more liberal-leaning state, where only 24% of the population is a registered Republican, his Trump-like ideology and rhetoric did not excite voters.

Chris Stirewalt, a Republican analyst with the American Enterprise Institute in Washington DC, reacted to the results by saying that his party "can certainly squander potential opportunities with unsatisfactory candidate selection." 

Towards the end of the race, Democrats doubled down on the comparison between Elder and Trump. During a campaign event the night before the election, President Biden spoke and told the crowd, Elder was "the closest thing to a Trump clone that I've ever seen."
