RIVERSIDE, Calif. (CNS) — Reform California will host a pair of "YES on Recall" rallies in Riverside County Saturday to persuade voters to vote yes on the upcoming recall election to try to oust Gov. Gavin Newsom.

Reform California will host rallies Saturday in La Quinta and Temecula to support recalling Newsom in the Sept. 14 recall election.

The Reform California rallies will feature guest speakers and will begin the group's door-to-door campaign in Southern California.

The La Quinta rally will be held at 3 p.m. at the East Valley Republican Headquarters in the 78870 block of CA-111, and the Temecula rally will be held at 9 a.m. at the Temecula Duck Pond and Park, off the 28250 block of Ynez Road.

"With Gavin Newsom sitting on millions in special interest campaign cash, we know we will be outspent on expensive TV ads," said Reform California chairman Carl DeMaio, "... but we won't be outworked on the ground with our growing team of grassroots volunteers."

Reform California cited rising taxes, justice policies, homelessness and what it called a failing school system as reasons for its recall campaign on its website.


Although the group advocates for recall of Gov. Newsom, it did not endorse an alternative candidate.

Newsom, meanwhile, will be barnstorming the state over the weekend to campaign against the recall effort. He began the effort Friday in San Francisco, saying the stakes of the election are "profound" and again condemning the recall effort as a Republican power grab.

Newsom is expected to hold campaign events in Los Angeles and San Diego on Saturday, with additional events expected Sunday.

During his San Francisco event Saturday, Newsom said he anticipates President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris to both make appearances on his behalf in the coming weeks. Biden issued a statement in support of the governor on Thursday.
