Conservative talk show host Larry Elder will be on the recall ballot after all.
Elder tweeted "we won" after a Sacramento county judge has ordered California's Secretary of State to put his name on the list of replacement candidates. meanwhile, former San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer has lost his court battle over his listed title. Faulconer will be known as a "businessman and educator" on the recall ballot. The judge ruled that Weber’s assertion that Elder was subject to a 2019 state law requiring candidates in a "direct primary election" to submit tax returns was inaccurate. The upcoming election is considered a special contest rather than a direct primary.
The California secretary of state’s office did not immediately return a request for comment on the judge’s decision.
