LOS ANGELES (AP) — Democrats have an early edge in the California recall election that could remove Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom from office.

State figures show Democrats are returning mail-in ballots at more than twice the rate submitted by Republicans.

Not every Democrat will be voting to retain Newsom. However, the trend is worrisome for leading Republican Larry Elder and other conservatives who hope to drive Newsom from office.

Meanwhile, a new poll by the nonpartisan Public Policy Institute of California shows 58% of voters oppose the recall, with 39% saying they want Newsom removed. Campaigns are trying to turn out voters with texts, emails and digital ads.

Dense fog has developed across parts of northern California Monday morning and the potential for light showers will return today. We'll dry out and warm up on Tuesday, but more cool and wet weather is expected mid week. A more substantial wet system is currently projected to move into our region this weekend.
