Conservative talk show host Larry Elder is joining Republican candidates in the California recall on Monday to replace Gov. Gavin Newsom, according to Politico. “Maybe, just maybe, I can do something about this,” said Elder, who is 69. “The target is Gavin Newsom. It is time for this man to go.” Elder says he will focus on crime, homelessness, housing costs and school choice during his campaign to replace .

Newsom has reportedly raised at least $20 million. Elder said “we’re going to need so much money to compete.” There are reportedly more than 90 potential candidates who have expressed interest in the Sept. 14 special election. Elder has over 875,000 Twitter followers and nearly an equal number on Instagram as well as a national media presence. Elder is known to his fans as the “Sage of South Central.”

More from Politico:

Elder charged that President Biden has “declared war” on small businesses in America and that Newsom has “done the same thing by clamping down on small businesses, while keeping his own open” during the Covid-19 pandemic. While that attack has circulated among conservatives on social media, The Sacramento Bee in April determined that the allegation about Newsom’s Plumpjack Winery was false… Elder also charged that Newsom is “beholden to the teachers union” and has failed to re-open California schools in a timely manner. The California Teachers Association endorsed Newsom in June after battling the governor over his attempt to reopen schools in late winter.

Several Republicans have entered the ring in the last few days, including Board of Equalization Member Ted Gaines and state Assemblymember Kevin Kiley. They face an uphill battle in a state where Democrats have roughly a 2-to-1 registration advantage and voters overwhelmingly opposed former President Donald Trump in 2020. Newsom and his campaign team have tried to tie the recall to Trump supporters at nearly every turn… Elder said Monday that as a Republican, he does not apologize for supporting Trump last yer. But “Gavin Newsom will not be running against Trump,” he told listeners. “I’m my own man.”

“Larry is known nationally… and he’ll have a national finance base,” thanks to his radio, TV and social media clout, said Louis Barnett, who will serve as Elder’s campaign manager. The campaign spokesperson will be Ying Ma, who served as spokesperson for GOP presidential candidate Ben Carson.

NEXT STORY: Tucker Carlson Delivers on His Promise, Releases Explosive Evidence of Fulton County Election Fraud

Tucker Carlson delivered on his promise and investigated voter fraud in the Georgia election during a segment on Fox News. Tucker said, “At least 36 batches of mail-in ballots from the November election were double-counted in Fulton County, that is a total of at least 4,000 votes. How’s that possible? I don’t know.”

Tucker continued, “Every American should want to know, because the answer gets to the heart of the integrity of our elections, otherwise known as our democracy. We’re not talking about a couple of ballots here. We are talking about a lot of ballots, at least hundreds of ballots involved. Enough potentially to affect the outcome of the election. How is that not flat-out criminal fraud?” Tucker asked. “We’d love to know. Because it certainly sounds like flat-out criminal fraud.”

Becker News dived into the story further:

As reported earlier, an independent election audit team poured through ballot images in Fulton County, Georgia and found numerous examples of fraudulent ballots double-counted in the election. The forensic auditing team found double-counted ballots from the 2020 election and showed them in a video release… The ballots scanned were identically marked in their entirety. The issue with double-ballot counting is that it circumstantially corroborates video-recorded evidence that appears to show Fulton County election workers running stacks of ballots through tabulators.

A video recording taken at State Farm Arena late election night showed election workers dragging out boxes of ballots from under a table after election observers were wrongfully sent home early. Then they ran stacks of ballots through tabulators multiple times for unknown reasons… Contrary to widespread media myths, as the Federalist’s Mollie Hemingway rightly pointed out, the State Farm vote-counting video has not been “debunked.” After the release of thousands of ballot images under a Georgia state law that has made them available to the public, the mainstream media has finally conceded that hundreds of double-scanned ballots were cast in Fulton County in the 2020 election.

NEXT STORY: Watch: Biden Sparks Mass Outrage with Remark about Trump Supporters, Compares Them to Slave-Owning Confederates

Joe Biden has sparked outrage by comparing slave-owning Confederates to Trump supporters who were at the Capitol in Washington D.C. on January 6th, according to The Philadelphia Inquirer. Biden said, “We’re facing the most significant test of our democracy since the Civil War. That’s not hyperbole — since the Civil War.”

“Confederates back then never breached the Capitol as insurrectionists did on Jan. 6,” Biden added. This comment has sparked widespread outrage and backlash, including a response from Kipp Jones at Western Journal.

Jones responded, “Democrats have spent half-year convincing themselves that the Jan. 6 Capitol incursion was the worst moment in American history, and on Tuesday, President Joe Biden lowered himself to equating conservative Americans to slave owners.” Jones continued, “Biden was speaking at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia about Democratic efforts to federalize elections and to stop states from asking people to prove who they are before they cast ballots. While speaking, he attacked voting integrity laws and compared people who no longer trust the untrustworthy battleground state election systems, such as the one in Pennsylvania, to slaveholders.”
