California lawmakers are being given the green light to fast track Governor Gavin Newsom's recall election. This comes as Newsom is riding high in the polls. The Democrat has already signed the bill that eliminates a legislative review of election costs. The move speeds up the election date by thirty days. Many Democrats at the Capitol believe an earlier election can enhance Newsom's odds of winning the recall vote and staying in office. Under the new rules, the recall election could be held as soon as September. Republican lawmakers are frustrated by the vote.
