Rescue California – Recall Gavin Newsom

Rescue California is back! In 2003 Rescue California was credited with recalling Governor Gray Davis. Today, it is led by Former California Republican Party Chair Tom Del Beccaro, whose PAC was a major funder of the committee formed by the original proponents of the Newsom Recall. Joining him in this important effort is: Orange County Supervisor Don Wagner, a former State Assemblyman, former Mayor of Irvine and leader in OPENCALNOW, who serves as Honorary Chair. Other California leaders of Rescue California include Former CAGOP Chair Frank Visco, Los Angeles GOP Chair Richard Sherman, San Diego GOP Chair Tony Krvaric, Orange County GOP Chair Fred Whitaker, State Senate Republican Leader Shannon Grove, CAGOP Vice Chair Peter Kuo, as well as numerous volunteer organizations, elected officials and community organizations.

The purpose of Rescue California is to augment the current recall efforts by circulating petitions and validating signatures to ensure the qualification for and scheduling of a special election to recall Governor Newsom. All signatures will be validated and returned to the original proponents for submission to the county registrars.
