Gavin Newsom’s Wife Had to Get Him off the Debate Stage

NR reports:

“If you want a sense of how well last night’s debate went for Gavin Newsom, consider how it ended, per Dasha Burns and Nnamdi Egwuonwu of NBC News:

According to four sources in the DeSantis camp — one who witnessed the moment in the room and three others who were standing backstage (where there was no press or live studio audience) — Newsom’s wife, Jennifer Siebel Newsom, came into the debate room on at least two occasions to raise some objections. She also made her way to the stage during the break after the candidates agreed to extend the debate and put an end to it. A fifth source on the ground, unaffiliated with either campaign, confirmed that Siebel Newsom ended the debate on her husband’s behalf, saying, ‘We’re done.’

The Newsom camp is, of course, denying the report.”

Just this week Americans said goodbye to former First Lady Rosalynn Carter. Much attention was paid to how influential she was both in former President Jimmy Carter’s career and especially in the White House.

This quick look behind the scenes at Mrs. Gavin Newsom perhaps reveals the role she would play in a Newsom presidency.
