Husband to @JenSiebelNewsom and father. 40th Governor of California. Former Lt. Governor of California. Former San Francisco Mayor. Personal account.
California is the true freedom state. Protecting liberty from a rising tide of oppression taking root in statehouses. Weakness, masquerading as strength. Small men in big offices. Freedom is who we are – anyone from anywhere can accomplish anything here.
Monterey Park should have had a night of joyful celebration of the Lunar New Year. Instead, they were the victims of a horrific and heartless act of gun violence. Our hearts mourn as we learn more about the devastating acts of last night. We are monitoring the situation closely.
Every country struggles with mental illness. But the USA has a gun homicide rate 26 TIMES HIGHER than our peers. The difference is how the @GOP have bowed down to the gun industry. The difference is how easy it is to access to guns and high capacity magazines in our country.
This is what a hero looks like. Brandon did what no one should ever have to do -- stopped a gunman at his place of work from killing countless others. Forever grateful for your courage, Brandon.
Abortion is legal in California. It will remain that way. I just signed a bill that makes our state a safe haven for women across the nation. We will not cooperate with any states that attempt to prosecute women or doctors for receiving or providing reproductive care.
California is going to make its own insulin. It’s simple. People should not go into debt to get life-saving medication.
What @GovRonDeSantis and @GregAbbott_TX are doing isn’t clever, it’s cruel. I’m formally requesting the DOJ begin an immediate investigation into these inhumane efforts to use kids as political pawns.
