Democrats, unions pour cash into California recall fight

National Democrats and California’s most powerful labor unions are pouring late cash into the race to save Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) from a recall election he faces next month as Newsom’s team floods the airwaves in a last-minute blitz.

Reports filed with the California Secretary of State’s Office show the Democratic Governors Association has given Newsom’s committee $5 million since the beginning of August, including another $1 million infusion on Tuesday.
