Assemblymember Kevin Kiley Looking Into Running for Governor


State Assemblymember Kevin Kiley joined Carl DeMaio on his radio show (The Demaio Report, AM 600 KOGO) to discuss his request for an explanation from Governor Newsom about his ongoing state of emergency order. While discussing the matter, Kiley also stated he was “looking” at a possible run for Governor.

Governor Gavin Newsom has responded to the COVID-19 pandemic with a controlling, micromanaging leadership style that is unmatched by any other governor. And even though Newsom has declared that the state will be "reopening" June 15th, he announced Friday that he won't be declaring an end to the emergency and will not be surrendering his emergency powers.

Yesterday, Assemblyman Kevin Kiley, Assemblyman James Gallagher, and Senator Melissa Melendez sent a letter to Governor Gavin Newsom requesting an explanation for his recent decision to extend the State of Emergency beyond June 15, 2021.

While speaking with Carl DeMaio about the letter, draconian lockdowns, and Newsom’s partial backtrack of a promised “return to normal,” Kiley was asked if he was thinking about running as a replacement candidate in the upcoming recall election of Gavin Newsom.

“I’m looking at it,” State Assemblymember Kevin Kiley stated.

“Some of the leaders who have been involved in the recall are going to be forming a group to provide me some advice on whether that would be the best thing for the recall and get Newsom out of there,” Kiley continued.

“I can tell you right now that there would be a very favorable reaction from Reform California and all Californians statewide,” DeMaio stated. 

“Stay tuned,” Kiley concluded.
