The next stage of the effort to recall California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) is set to begin. On Wednesday, supporters are set to submit over 2 million signatures, which far surpasses the requirement by more than 500,000 signatures.

In response, Newsom has begun raising funds to defend his seat in a likely recall election. While speaking in an interview Tuesday, the Democrat voiced his concerns that he may face a strong challenge similar to the one former Democrat Gov. Gray Davis faced back in 2003.

Election officials have until April 29 to authenticate all of the signatures and it could take another several months before an election is formally scheduled.
