Auckland – Republican congressional candidate Darrell Isa and a Conservative group are able to block California’s passage to the November election through the mail.
They are legally challenging Governor Gavin News’ directive that election officials send every registered voter ballot for the November election, making California the first state to go to the polls by mail because of coronavirus problems. Newsom called the move a necessary response to the pandemic, as voters in crowded polling stations could be exposed if they cast their ballots.
Newsom’s move won praise from Democrats last week, including former senator and presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. However, Republicans saw it as an attempt to interfere in the November election, and the Republican National Committee said it was weighing its legal options following Newsom’s executive order.
The Conservative Judicial Group has filed a lawsuit in the Sacramento District Court to block Newsham’s executive order on behalf of plaintiffs, including Isa, a former Republican congressman who joins this year to return to the Chamber to represent the San District. Diego.
The complaint alleges that Newsom’s order violates the electoral provisions of the Constitution and constitutes an “illegal attempt to replace and replace California’s electoral law” by creating an “entirely new system” that is incompatible with existing state law, the California Act. voter selection, which sets out the requirements for counties wishing to send ballots to all voters.
He warns that the election results may be invalid, especially referring to the 50sDad A district competition in which Isa is the Republican candidate. And the complaint alleges that Newsom’s order confused Issa’s campaign, forcing it to “re-evaluate its election strategy” and increase campaign costs.
Issa “is registered to run for office based on the electoral system established by California law,” the complaint said. “Now he has to develop a new strategy.”
California Republicans also opposed Newsom’s e-mail voting order, saying he had mismanaged his executive power in making a general election change through Fiat.
President Donald Trump has repeatedly criticized mail ballots for undermining Republicans and calling for fraud, often insinuating without evidence that the California election was distorted by an incorrect vote count.
