LOS ANGELES (AP) — The California Republican Party is giving $125,000 to the campaign aimed at recalling Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom.

The infusion of cash comes at a critical time for organizers, who are required to collect 1.5 million valid petition signatures by mid-March to qualify the proposal for the ballot.

The funds will go toward hiring workers to gather signatures. So far, that work has fallen largely on volunteers.

The funds were donated to Rescue California, one of several political committees working to oust Newsom from office.

Newsom's political advisers call the proposal a misguided effort by supporters of former President Donald Trump and other Republicans.

Sunny skies and warmer temperatures are on the way for your Sunday. We'll be mostly sunny and just about as warm on Monday. A modest cooling trend and the chance for Sierra showers is ahead for Tuesday.
