Vice President Kamala Harris is in California Wednesday campaigning for Gov. Gavin Newsom, whose political fate will be decided Tuesday in a special election to recall him from office.

Republicans hope to replace Newsom with a conservative, but even Democratic voters in this deep blue state have voiced their dissatisfaction with the governor's pandemic response and other issues.

Here & Now's Tonya Mosley speaks with Scott Shafer, senior editor for KQED, and Shawn Hubler, California correspondent for the New York Times.

This segment aired on September 8, 2021.
