    Number of Radical Left Lawmakers Rises Under Governor Newsom’s Administration

    by Luke Schneider 

    Alexandria, VA—California politicians are becoming more radicalized and leftist, according to new analysis from the American Conservative Union Foundation (ACUF), host of the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC).

    ACUF analyzed the voting records of all 120 California state lawmakers and found that 73 lawmakers (or 60%) qualified as members of the “Coalition of the Radical Left” for opposing the conservative position on at least 90% of issues. The group of leftist lawmakers has grown since 2018, when the California Legislature included 71 lawmakers who qualified as leftists.

    “It’s no wonder so many Californians were desperate to recall Governor Gavin Newsom when the issues he prioritizes are attacking private businesses, locking down the state, and restricting important constitutional rights,” said CPAC Chairman Matt Schlapp. “California is crumbling because of Governor Newsom’s leftist policies, and it’s only getting worse because a growing number of California lawmakers have become infatuated with socialism.”

    The leftist lawmakers supported, and Governor Gavin Newsom signed into law, the following bills:

    • (AB 2218) Force taxpayers to fund sex-change operations and “therapeutic arts” for those who identify as transgender.
    • (AB 685) Permit OSHA to raid and shut down private businesses if OSHA believes the business exposes workers to risk of covid infection.
    • (AB 860) Require the state to send unsolicited mail-in ballots to all registered voters.
    • (AB 2847) Restrict Second Amendment rights by outlawing 496 styles of handguns.
    • (AB 2405) Declare a “right to housing” and force taxpayers to commit $10 billion toward “free” housing.

    One proposal that Newsom signed, known as ACA 5, was rejected by voters by a 57% majority when it reached the November 2020 ballot. ACA 5 would have permitted state government to discriminate in hiring and contracting on the basis of race, sex, color, ethnicity, and national origin.

    ACUF’s Ratings of Congress and Ratings of the States are initiatives of ACUF’s Center for Legislative Accountability (CLA). These ratings are designed to reflect how over 8,000 elected officials across the nation view the role of government while illustrating the differences between chambers of the legislature and revealing lawmakers’ positions across 186 policy areas that directly affect citizens.
