Gavin Newsom Announces Campaign To Promote Liberal Agenda in Republican States Across The U.S.

Governor Gavin Newsom (D-CA) announced a national campaign to fight in red states, increasing rumors that he is running for president in 2024.

Newsom said that the new political action committee, “Campaign for Democracy,” would focus on promoting a liberal agenda in local and state races across the nation.

The PAC is reportedly funded with $10 million from Newsom’s previous campaign to fight a failed recall effort in 2021.

From The Blaze:

"The problem in our country right now: authoritarian leaders who are so hellbent on gaining power and keeping it by whatever means necessary that they're directly attacking our freedoms in state after state," said the 55-year-old Democrat in a campaign video for the PAC.

The ad specifically cited Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and Texas Gov. Greg Abbott as two Republican targets for the campaign.

Newsom is also going on the road in a "listening tour" of states, including Arkansas, Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida. He's reportedly also going to visit Indiana, South Carolina, Ohio, South Dakota, and Texas.
