Elder plans to talk about crime in the state, and critical race theory among other topics.

In San Francisco, recall opponents quietly protested Rescue California's support for the recall.

"Yes we need to address crime but we can't do that without social services to address what drives people to homelessness and crime," said recall opponent Susan Solomon.

But Anne Hyde Dunsmore, the campaign manager for Rescue California, countered: "We need to recall this guy because he has no limits on the things that he's doing that makes this  probably the worst states to live in."

President Joe Biden is throwing his support behind Newsom, urging Californians to reject the recall.

In a tweet, he called Newsom a "key partner in fighting the pandemic and helping build our economy back better."
