Follow our live update at California Recall When Larry Elder When Gavin Newsom..
Dozens of Republicans are running to replace Governor Gavin Newsom of California. However, only a handful have registered meaningful support for voting or raised the kind of funding needed to run state-wide campaigns.
They include political veterans such as Kevin Faulconer, the former mayor of San Diego, and Kevin Kylie, a member of the Loughlin legislature. There are business leaders, including John Cox, who has been appointed several times before, and first-time candidates such as talk radio personality Larry Elder and former Olympic athlete Caitlyn Jenner.
Those big differences reflect the disparate nature of the Republicans in California. It is an institution that has been hollowed out for many years and is now so small that it is effectively a third party.
This is a complete list of challengers from the Secretary of State of California.
