Facing a recall election Tuesday that could soon leave him without a job, California Gov. Gavin Newsom has been pointing to Texas as an example of where the Golden State is headed if Republicans take over, according to a report.
While campaigning last week, Newsom, a Democrat, made reference to a new Texas abortion law that many liberals fear could lead to the U.S. Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade, the 1973 decision that legalized abortion in America.
“The whole idea that a constitutional right, the right to choice, the right to reproductive freedom, rights of women, now are under assault – what a remarkable moment it is in American history,” Newsom told a campaign crowd, FOX 11 of Los Angeles reported.
But ironically, while Newsom and other Democrats portray Texas as a nightmare, Texans note that more Californians and California businesses have been relocating to the Lone Star State, seeking relief from California’s taxes and regulations, according to the report.
