SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — California Gov. Gavin Newsom will face a little-known Republican state senator in the November general election. Newsom overwhelmed the field in Tuesday’s primary, winning about 59% of the votes. Runner-up Brian Dahle got about 15%. Newsom is the overwhelming favorite to win a second term just a year after surviving a recall election. He will run on a progressive agenda that includes stricter gun laws and enhanced abortion services. Dahle, a farmer, says Newsom is out of touch with the struggles of regular Californians. He wants to suspend the state’s gas tax to give drivers a break at the pump, where a gallon of gas is now a record $6.37.
