The petition to recall Democratic Governor of California Gavin Newsom has passed the 2 million signature mark, organizers said Thursday.
Organizers of the petition announced Thursday that as of Wednesday night, the move to remove the Golden State governor from office had garnered more than 2,060,000 signatures.
The movement only needed 1.5 million signatures to get the movement on the ballot, but was aiming for 2 million to make up for any invalid signatures.
California Patriot Coalition’s RecallGavin2020 committee chair Orrin Heatlie said Californians are “speaking out loud” through the popular petition and said the winds of change are coming in California politics.

“We have taken another step forward,” Heatlie said. “The politics as usual in California are over as we know.”

“This campaign is not about political brokers, it is about the people, the people and all the people of California,” said Randy Economy, spokesperson for RecallGavin2020.
Measure co-promoter Mike Netter boasted that the movement “built an army of volunteers who defied the [odds]”and that the group” will not rest “until Newsom is kicked out of the governor’s mansion” in this historic move. “
Newsom’s campaign did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.
