California will maintain its gubernatorial recall race on Sept. 14, state officers introduced Thursday, giving Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom’s potential challengers simply two extra weeks to throw their hats into the ring.

Lt. Gov. Eleni Kounalakis selected the date hours after the California secretary of state’s workplace licensed the recall, which required simply shy of 1.5 million signatures to make it onto the poll. The date of the recall vote have to be inside 60 to 80 days of the certification date, in response to state guidelines.

“Although the window of time from which I could select a date was narrow, I believe we have chosen a fair and reasonable date for this election to take place,” Kounalakis stated in a press release. “It has always been my intention to choose an election date that gives election officials and the public ample time to ensure a smooth election with broad participation.”

The recall, which is able to ask voters in the event that they wish to hold Newsom in workplace or exchange him with one other candidate, will value the state $215 million, officers stated final month.

Newsom, who is sort of three years into his first time period as governor, has no severe contenders from his personal occasion competing towards him within the solidly blue state. But a variety of Republican challengers have emerged because the recall effort first picked up steam final winter ― together with former San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer and athlete-turned-reality star Caitlyn Jenner.
