The movement to recall Democratic California Gov. Gavin Newsom has achieved more than enough verified signatures to obtain a recall election.

"This now triggers the next phase of the recall process, a 30-business-day period in which voters may submit written requests to county Registrars of Voters to remove their names from the recall petition," California Secretary of State Dr. Shirley N. Weber said in a statement. "A recall election will be held unless a sufficient number of signatures are withdrawn."

The press release declares: "The valid signatures in the 10th report are 1,626,042, which exceeds the total of 1,495,709 signatures required."
