Well, I’m uncertain if we will get a definite answer tonight regarding those recall results in California. So if you don’t see any updates here on this thread…take a look in the comments. As of the time of writing this post, the polls in California are just about ready to close.
So for the latest information:

Here's what I think – so far – about the Milley business.— Tom Nichols (@RadioFreeTom) September 15, 2021
– Calls for him to resign are stupid.
– Calls to fire him are stupid.
– The call to China was a *good* thing
– It's a legit question about whether he was preemptively countermanding possible orders from the CINC.
This statement is the best defense Mark Milley could ever present for why he was trying to put backstops in place against a Night of Camp David scenario. https://t.co/zTFZBvzJUm— Tom Nichols (@RadioFreeTom) September 15, 2021

I’m glad Milley did what he did.
Lots of focus on Gen. Milley’s concerns about Trump after January 6th as described in Woodward’s book. But the more concerning and potentially explosive revelations – esp to the Jan 6th investigation – are abt Bannon & Trump. https://t.co/Dwvozxbrkq pic.twitter.com/WxPfVAm8sU— Sherrilyn Ifill (@Sifill_LDF) September 15, 2021

In his desperation to remain in the White House after Joe Biden’s win in the 2020 election, Trump reportedly resorted to schoolyard threats against Mike Pence to convince him to overturn the results by rejecting certification. https://t.co/pF5B7m8Bvy— The Daily Beast (@thedailybeast) September 15, 2021

Let’s be honest.
It was NEVER about babies. It has ALWAYS been about control.

$276 MILLION?! Can only Republicans pay for this stupid recall election or now they believe in socialism?— Mexican Judge (@laloalcaraz) September 15, 2021
If I were a voter in California, I wouldn't be celebrating. I'd be angry over tonight. I'd be asking @CAGOP what the taxpayers got in return for the $276 million wasted on this ridiculous recall campaign. Utterly embarrassing.— Charlotte Clymer 🏳️🌈 (@cmclymer) September 15, 2021
These idiots wasted 300 million dollars on this ridiculous thing — and Newsom is up for reelection *next year.*— digby (@digby56) September 15, 2021
Let's hear no more about GOP "fiscal responsibility."
This is an open thread.
