Donald Trump's dangerous immigration ideas would be a disaster for our country. And they're not even feasible!
Gavin gives his reaction to President Trump's inaugural on Facebook live.
It’s still early in the California gubernatorial race for 2018. But the state’s Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom has consistently lead with nearly $3.6 million in fundraising from January to June 2017, according to the Los Angeles Times.
Newsom has held political office since 1997, and gained notoriety as a member on the San Francisco Board of Supervisors. He then became mayor of that city before taking a seat as lieutenant governor in 2010 under Jerry Brown.
Gubernatorial candidate Gavin Newsom called on the National Rifle Assn. to take down a controversial new video that he argued villanizes political rivals and could lead to violence.
“Come after politicians. Come after policy makers. Come after ME,” Newsom wrote on his Facebook page Thursday. But “do not implicitly call for demonstrations of force against your fellow Americans in a country that is already reeling. You are powerful. People are listening to you. And your message could lead to tragedy.”
For John Burton, the question was never about whether he was going to endorse Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom for governor, but only when.
Burton, recently freed from the political shackles of his job as chairman of the California Democratic Party, made that endorsement official this week, giving the former San Francisco mayor his blessing in next June’s crowded Democratic primary.
Only a quarter of California's high schools offer computer science. And sadly, that disparity is punctuated by striking gender and racial gaps. That is unacceptable. California is better than this.
Today, I'm calling for Computer Science For All to make sure every California student has access to computer science education.
Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom on Saturday took to a stage in Santa Rosa before a crowd of leading North Bay environmentalists to tout activism and government policies that have made California a global leader in the green economy.
“California is a climate of hope. If you don’t like the way the world looks when you’re standing up, stand on your head, because remarkable things are happening at the local level,” Newsom said.
SANTA BARBARA, Calif. - Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom paid a visit to Santa Barbara on Wednesday.
Newsom met with voters and grassroots activists at La Casa de la Raza community center. He is acting governor while Gov. Jerry Brown is China on a business trip making plans to combat climate change. But Newsom is also one of four candidates running for governor in 2018.
Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom told California Democrats on Saturday that they must be the resistance to President Trump and offer an alternative vision for the rest of the world.
“We are all Californians. Wear it with pride. This is our moment,” the gubernatorial candidate said to thousands of delegates and activists gathered at the state party’s annual convention in Sacramento. “California Democrats: Let’s show the world that Donald Trump is the last vestige of a darker, obsolete past and offer a bold, new vision for a progressive and prosperous future.”
On Tuesday, the State Lands Commission, an agency that regulates offshore oil drilling in state waters and submerged tidal lands, sent a letter to CEMEX officials demanding that the company obtain a lease from the commission and begin paying royalties, or shut down.
“Stealing public resources for private profit without a lease is a violation of the state constitution,” said Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom, chairman of the State Lands Commission. “This mine is a relic of an era that California and the nation rejected a long time ago, and it is past time that CEMEX engage in a dialogue on the future of operations.”
Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom is releasing six years of tax returns. It’s partly to answer questions about his finances, which are in the 1 percent stratosphere, and partly to pressure his competitors in next year’s race to do the same.
In either case, it’s a welcome move. Voters should know the financial background of candidates, especially in a age in which wealthy contenders seek top elected offices. Where their money comes from, what tax rates they pay and what loopholes they tap are worth knowing. Yes, we’re talking about President Trump and his refusal to divulge his returns.
SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom will visit the Barrio Logan College Institute (BLCI) after school program in San Diego Thursday at 4:30pm.
Located in a traditionally low-income community, BLCI promotes higher education as a ticket out of poverty. It is the only after school program in San Diego that offers college preparation services beginning in 3rd grade, and ensures that 100% of its students enroll in college.
The second-ranking politician in California is calling out the No. 2 official in the federal government for "astounding" hypocrisy after a United States Senate vote on Planned Parenthood funding.
California Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom sounded off on Facebook after Republican legislation letting states deny federal family planning money to Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers squeezed narrowly through the Senate on Thursday. The legislation was rescued by an ailing GOP senator who returned to the Capitol after back surgery and a tie-breaking vote by Vice President Mike Pence.
Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom is maintaining a clear edge over other declared candidates in the 2018 California governor’s race, according to a new poll by UC Berkeley’s Institute of Governmental Studies.
Though he may have been 45 minutes late for his own “meet and greet” at San Benito High School on Saturday, March 4, Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom had to know by the enthusiastic standing ovation from the crowd of seemingly like-minded county residents that he was in a friendly neighborhood. The former mayor of San Francisco and current lieutenant governor made a whistle stop of sorts in Hollister to speak and press the flesh as he campaigns for the governorship. And there was no shortage of eager folks who sought to get closer to the Democratic candidate for selfies and handshakes.
Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom, a leading supporter of Proposition 64, sent a letter to President Trump on Friday, urging him not to carry through with threats to launch a federal enforcement effort against recreational marijuana firms that will be legalized in California.
The letter, which was copied to Atty. Gen. Jeff Sessions, came a day after White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer told reporters, "I do believe that you'll see greater enforcement” against recreational-use marijuana.
Newsom’s letter attempts to persuade the president that a regulated market for adult-use marijuana is preferable to what has existed in the past.
“The war on marijuana has failed,” Newsom wrote. “It did not, and will not, keep marijuana out of kids’ hands.”
Six years into it and aspiring to move over to the governor’s suite, Newsom is using the position of lite guv to be everywhere. As a UC regent, he voted against a tuition hike. That heartens younger voters. As a State Lands Commission member, Newsom is challenging venture capitalist Vinod Khosla’s effort to restrict access over his property to Martins Beach in San Mateo County. That plays well to environmentalist activists.
Mostly Newsom is in the face of President Donald Trump, giving voice to horrified liberals by using the president’s medium of choice to regularly tweet smack to his 1.29 million followers.
As hundreds of outraged protesters descended on SFO last week to protest President Donald Trump‘s travel ban on refugees, they were joined by Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom.
Newsom, dressed in a dark suit and fresh out of a Chinese New Year event in San Francisco, said he didn’t go to the airport as lieutenant governor, but as someone who felt “sick to my stomach” about the travel ban.
Fundraising is already ramping up for California’s 2018 gubernatorial race, and Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom has an early lead over his announced competitors.
According to memo his campaign sent to donors Tuesday, Newsom raised $2.7 million in the second half of 2016, giving him a total of $11.5 million cash on hand. That’s far more than his major announced rivals, who include state Treasurer John Chiang, former Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and former state Superintendent of Public Instruction Delaine Eastin.
Newsom’s camp reported having more than 30,000 individual donors. Thanks in part to winning two statewide races and having a national profile, Newsom also led the field of announced and potential 2018 candidates in a November Field Institute of Governmental Studies at UC Berkeley Poll, with 23 percent of the registered voters surveyed.
California’s public colleges and universities should be declared “sanctuary campuses” and protect law-abiding students from the threat of deportation, Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom wrote in a letter to leaders of Cal State, UC and the community college system.
“We must take urgent stock of current policies and vulnerabilities pertaining to the personal data held and processed by the University of California, to shield students from federal agencies under a Trump administration,” he wrote.
California Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom is the early favorite to succeed fellow Democrat Jerry Brown in the 2018 gubernatorial race, as the state’s second-in-command holds large advantages among Democrats and independents, according to a new Field Poll.
Newsom, leading with support from 23 percent of registered voters, is followed by a pair of rising Republicans: San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer (16 percent) and outgoing Fresno Mayor Ashley Swearengin (11 percent).
As many as 8.5 million American school children may have dyslexia. Here in California, our own Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom has the learning disorder. He spoke with ABC7 News about how he's passionate about raising awareness about dyslexia because it affects him every day.
"I think for me it was two things - one, it was very difficult for me in terms of my own academic experience," he said. "School was a terrible and terrorizing experience. I will just be candid with you -- spelling, reading, writing."
Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom was greeted by raucous applause and blasts of confetti Wednesday as he took the stage to receive his first major endorsement in his 2018 campaign for governor from a labor union representing nurses in California.
The Democratic hopeful was swarmed by dozens of attendees who ran onto the stage to snap selfies as rock music blasted through the conference center ballroom. Newsom joked the scene felt as if he had already won the race, which is three years away.
The endorsement from the California Nurses Assn. was "one of the the easiest endorsements" the union has ever made, said Executive Director RoseAnn DeMoro. She said the union's board did not interview any other potential candidates.
They selected Newsom because he launched the country's first universal healthcare initiative while he was mayor of San Francisco, three years before President Obama's healthcare package was approved by Congress, she said.
