Gavin Newsom, the Democratic governor of California expectedly won the recall election on Tuesday even in the face of Republicans making every effort to remove Newsom.
The total number of votes Newsom got in the votes was 5,562,954 or 66.6% compared to 2,787,227 votes or 33.4% of the voters who chose to remove him as the governor of the most populous state of US.
This was the second time on record that a recall vote was held against a Californian governor.
What was the strategy of Newsom?
The recall election shows that Newsom’s campaign was far beyond effective in demonizing the Republicans, giving him a secured seat in the governor’s office. Newsom used two main strategies to defeat his enemy efficiently.
One was branding the Republicans as an entity that abuses power. Newsom had described his attempted removal by the Republicans as an effort of power-grabbing and subverting the fundamental human right of voters to vote who they want in the position for a specific period of time. The second strategy of Newsom raised questions about who out of his 46 opponents in the election should replace him as the governor.
How did this recall election come about?
The call for recalling the governor of California had startedafter nearly 1.5 million Californians signed a recall petition. These people had frustrations over multiple issues such as health orders and the appearance of a maskless Newsom at a dinner party and the high number of Covid-19 cases.
Still, his sustained campaign helped him to secure 2 votes to 1, as he retained his position.
Given the non-palatability and the lack of experience of the other alternative candidates, voters apparently were convinced that Newsom was the only candidate they had who would continue improving California’s efforts in dealing with the pandemics and making the economy stable and flourishing.

On the Caspian shore of Russia, thousands of dead seals have washed up
Officials announced on Sunday that over 2,500 dead seals had been discovered near the Caspian Sea coast of Russia.
Authorities in the Russian province of Dagestan stated that the cause of the shocking mass deaths was unknown and that they believed it was probably due to natural causes.
The number of dead seals discovered off the coast on Saturday initially appeared to be 700, but later rose to 2,500, according to the Russian Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment.
The Caspian Environmental Protection Center’s Zaur Gapizov stated in a statement that the seals had probably been dead for a few weeks. He claimed that there was no evidence that they had been killed or caught in fishing nets.
According to a statement posted on the Telegram messaging app by the Dagestan natural resources ministry, samples taken from the seals’ internal organs did not contain any traces of pollution.
A North Caucasus fisheries official was quoted by the business newspaper Kommersant as suggesting that the seals may have perished due to protracted storms, although the news website Fontanka.ru suggested that the mass deaths may have been brought on by a natural gas leak from the sea’s abundant resources.
The Dagestan ministry stated after this incident that there was still a stable number of Caspian seals in the region, “ranging from 270,000 to 300,000.”
According to RIA, the seals are at the top of the food chain and have no natural enemies as adults. They can grow to a length of more than 1.6 metres (5.2 feet) and a weight of up to 100 kilogrammes (200 pounds).

man who killed 70 years old Massachusetts couple over a barking dog was found in Florida.
Police stated that they had apprehended the fugitive suspected of fatally murdering an elderly Massachusetts couple during a dispute about a noisy dog in Florida.
The Plymouth County District Attorney’s Office reported that Christopher Keeley, 27, was apprehended Thursday at 8:20 p.m. in Miami Beach, approximately 1,500 miles from the Marshfield home where he is accused of beating Carl and Vicki Mattson, both 70, to death.
The couple and Keeley allegedly got into a fight about a barking dog, according to the police.
According to court documents obtained by CBS, the alleged brute had been staying in the Mattson’s Gotham Hill Drive house as a courtesy to a family member but had just been ordered to leave.
According to Keeley’s arrest on a warrant as an out-of-state fugitive, Miami-Dade County jail records show this. It was unclear at first if Keeley had hired a lawyer.
Questions were not immediately answered by representatives of the Massachusetts State Police and the Miami-Dade Police Department. It was impossible to speak with a district attorney’s office representative for Plymouth County right away.
A dog that had been reported missing earlier was also discovered dead inside the home, according to the DA. It’s unclear to whom the dog belonged or how it passed away.
This would not be the first time Keeley had turned to murder after a dispute.
In a dispute over a phone charger when he was 18 years old, Keeley broke his grandmother’s vehicle window, according to The Patriot Ledger. He was accused of intentionally causing damage to a vehicle.
According to Keeley, he attacked the couple after a dispute about a barking dog.
At least two further significant run-ins with the law involved Keeley. According to the publication, he was detained in 2016 at the age of 21 for organising and carrying out a group beating of a man with autism before snatching his cellphone and wallet. According to reports, a court in Massachusetts deemed Keeley “to be dangerous,” and he was subsequently given an 18-month prison term.
Keeley was recently charged with narcotics possession after it was claimed that he was found driving about with marijuana and Xanax. According to court documents obtained by The Ledger, he was charged with drug offences.
