President Biden is heading to Sacramento to tour wildfire damage and rally in So Cal with Governor Newsom.
Republican strategist Tab Berg said Biden’s arrival is more sign that Newsom is worried he could lose. “It’s very clear that the governor’s people are worried — the Democrats — that there’s just not enough enthusiasm for this governor,” Berg said. The presidential input comes after a recent UC Berkeley poll showed Newsom winning the recall with 60 percent of the vote after earlier polling showed a tighter race dependent on the numbers of voters heading to the polls, according to CBS Sacramento. Democrats outnumber Republicans 2-to-1 in California.
The presidential trip marks Biden’s first to the west coast since taking office. He should land at Sacramento's Mather Airport around 1pm this afternoon.
