Former lawyer and conservative radio host Larry Elder announced on his show yesterday that he will be joining the somewhat crowded recall election in California.
In his announcement, Elder mentions that he was asked to run by fellow radio host and conservative icon Dennis Prager as well as a number of other prominent figures. Elder himself showed reluctance until he could not stand what he called the “egregious” behavior of current governor Gavin Newsom.
Elder also brought up a number of issues that he believes are not being handled correctly, or even given any attention:
We have rising crime, ridiculous laws that allow a person to steal up to $950 a day without being a felon . . . We have an attack on the police, calling the police to pull back. We have incredible homelessness here in California . . .
The recall election itself will be held on September 14th, and while Elder has confidence in his ability to run, he faces a myriad of candidates. Within the GOP itself, Elder is going up against San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer, businessman John Cox, state Assemblyman Kevin Kiley, former Olympian Caitlyn Jenner (formerly Bruce Jenner), and former U.S. Rep. Doug Ose.
