How mad is your county at Gavin Newsom? Here are the numbers.

California Gov. Gavin Newsom is facing a likely recall amid growing criticism of his handling of the coronavirus pandemic and two economic shutdowns.

Organizers of the recall campaign announced earlier in February they reached 1.5 million signatures which, if validated, would put Newsom on the ballot before 2022.

With more than 600,000 signatures on recall petitions having been verified, we’re now getting a better look at where the anger at Newsom is originating.
