San Diego voters were on a path to soundly reject the recall effort against Gov. Gavin Newsom in early returns Tuesday from the Registrar of Voters.

Almost 61% of voters voted no on the question of recalling the governor. More than 39% supported Newsom’s recall.

Statewide, nearly 70% of voters rejected the recall, with nearly 12% of precincts reporting.

Early local returns include the 875,000 ballots county voters turned in leading up to Tuesday’s official Election Day.

Among the 46 candidates seeking to replace Newsom, talk show host and author Larry Elder led the field with 43% of the vote, far outpacing former San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer, at just short of 17%. Both are Republicans.
