>> a talk radio host larry elder did concede his fight to become california's next governor during the recall election earlier this week he indicated at the time that his first campaign might not be his last but in an exclusive interview with inside california politics. it appears it elder may be changing his tune grant lotus is here with details. >> pretty revealing interview today and he was was candid or at least seem to open up about. yes, some of the practical hurdles that he could be facing. >> were he to run. i mean, you know, he got blown out and the quote of the night from larry elder on tuesday. we may have lost the battle, but we're going to win the war. that is what the republican recall contender told the crowd of supporters tuesday night after conceding the recall election to governor newsom but only 2 days later today on inside
california politics. it sure sounded like elder was reversing course on whether he would enter next year's regularly scheduled governor's race. >> it's hard for me to see how the outcome would be any different. west was able to raise at least as much money as he has that. but even then the thing is daunting. when you look at the registration democrat versus republican when gray davis was recalled. it wasn't as nearly as lopsided as it right now. now independents outnumber republicans. so it's hard for me to see that were right to have a rematch. the outcome would be a whole lot different, but i may change my mind over the next coming days. >> so the door has been left open. but it sure sounds like his kind of realized that he got blown out and the outcome next time is likely not to be all that different. here's a list of the gubernatorial replacement candidates. the people who ran against new elder way up top with 47 percent of the vote about 3 quarters of the votes have been counted and he is way
ahead of the 45 other candidates who are trying to replace him. the next republican kevin faulconer, former san diego governor just 8% of the vote. so the 69 year-old elder who is a lawyer and author. talk show host he would have become the state's first black governor were he to have beaten newsome, but. today, at least it seems like he is not leaning towards running next year. but as former president trump whose politics closely aligned with elders was so fond of saying we'll see what happens live in the studio. grant lotus kron 4 news grant, thank you for that. you can catch the entire interview this weekend on inside california politics. >> it airs saturday night at 6.30 and again on sunday morning. also at 6.30. you can watch it right here on kron 4 and on kron on. well, with the recall behind him. governor newsom is getting right back to work. hundreds of bills await his signature or his veto with the deadline fast
approaching our capitol bureau reporter ashley zavala has more. >> about 700 bills. sit on governor gavin newsom's desk proposals that piled up as he faced a recall with an october 10th deadline. newsome has about 3 weeks to sign or veto the legislation part of the push to have the rscall date as soon as possible was in part to prevent governor gavin newsome from having these policy debates with the democratic majority legislature during the special election but with his victory speech over newsome signed legislation that could boost housing production. which state leaders have said california desperately needs in single family home neighborhoods. sb 9 will allow homeowners to build 2 houses or a duplex per one house is currently allowed. he also signed sb 10, which allows local governments to rezone single family areas to allow more units for those in urban areas and those near public transportation, other legislation waiting on his signature a series of police accountability measures, including allowing the public greater access to police use of force records.
