California’s Newsom, if reelected, vows to serve out his four-year term and denies having any presidential aspirations.

On Sunday, California Governor Gavin Newsom rejected the idea that he was considering running for president and swore, if reelected, to complete the remainder of his four-year term.

The only face-to-face meeting between two candidates before voting concludes on November 8 occurred at a debate with his Republican opponent, state senator Brian Dahle.

If reelected, Newsom pledged to serve full four years when asked directly by co-moderator Marisa Lagos. So defense of his national advocacy, Newsom claimed that he had “barely” left the state in order to fight against national Republican leaders who, in his view, are outlawing books and degrading the LGBT community.

In November, it is anticipated that Newsom, a Democrat leading a state that is solidly under his party’s control, will comfortably win reelection. The election takes place more than a year after Newsom defeated a recall effort motivated by resentment at his pandemic policies, which included the first statewide stay-at-home order in the country.

In contrast to confronting Republican leaders in Florida and Texas who could be his rivals in a presidential contest, Newsom has hardly campaigned in California.

The debate on Sunday was unsurprising in that it generally adhered to the two major political parties in the nation’s messaging. Dahle, a farmer who also owns a trucking company, focused on the economy, specifically California’s high cost of living, which includes gas prices that are climbing by as much as $2.60 above the national average. Newsom focused on climate change and abortion rights.

The debate is likely to be Dahle’s campaign’s pinnacle. He has funded less than $1 million, which is insufficient to broadcast statewide TV advertisements in the most populous state in the union, which is also home to some of the most costly media markets in the nation.
