Newsom, D-San Francisco, has the endorsement of more than 30 California Democrats.
The former congressman has been one of the state’s most prominent politicians since he took office in 2018.
But he is also one of a handful of elected Democrats who have not held statewide office since 2016.
A political novice, Newsom has served on the San Francisco City Council since 2014.
He has won two statewide elections and served on both the San Diego County Board of Supervisors and the San Bernardino County Board.
His political rise has been overshadowed by his time in office, which included his decision to retire from Congress.
Newsom’s political ascent in the state has been bolstered by the presence of Democratic Gov.
Gavin Newsom in the Golden State.
He was the lone Republican on the board of the National Association of Secretaries of State from January 1 to June 30, 2018.
But Newsom’s popularity is being overshadowed by the ongoing political scandal that has engulfed his administration.
His administration has been accused of improperly coordinating the state budget, which is one of California’s biggest in the nation.
The Democratic Party of California, which has endorsed Newsom for governor, has endorsed him for a second term.
It has called on voters to reject Newsom.
The party has also endorsed Democratic U.S. Rep. Mike Honda, who defeated Newsom and Lt.
Hannah-Beth Jackson in 2018, as well as Democratic U-S.
Sen. Kamala Harris, the top Democrat in the Senate.
Ahead of Newsom announcing his run for governor in 2018 on Tuesday, a spokesperson for Newsom did not immediately return a request for comment.
