Elected Governor

Gavin Newsom
Democratic

The 2018 California gubernatorial election was held on November 6, 2018, to elect the 40th Governor of California. Incumbent Democratic Governor Jerry Brown was ineligible to run for reelection for a third consecutive (and fifth non-consecutive) term due to term limits from the Constitution of California.

The race was between the incumbent Democratic Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom and businessman John H. Cox, a Republican, who qualified for the general election after placing first and second in the June 5, 2018 primary election. Newsom easily won with 62% of the vote, the biggest victory in a gubernatorial race in California since Earl Warren won reelection in 1950, the first time Orange County has voted for the Democratic candidate since Jerry Brown won it in 1978 and the first time Democrats have won three consecutive gubernatorial elections in the state's history.[1] Newsom assumed office on January 7, 2019.

Candidates[edit]

A primary election was held on June 5, 2018. Under California's non-partisan blanket primary law, all candidates appeared on the same ballot, regardless of party. Voters may vote for any candidate, regardless of their party affiliation. The top two finishers – regardless of party – advance to the general election in November, regardless of whether a candidate manages to receive a majority of the votes cast in the primary election.

Results[edit]

Newsom won the general election by the largest margin of any California gubernatorial candidate since Earl Warren's re-election in 1950. In addition to winning the traditional Democratic strongholds of the San Francisco Bay Area, Los Angeles County, Sacramento, and North Coast, Newsom performed well in the traditionally swing Central Coast, San Bernardino County, and San Diego County, as well as narrowly winning traditionally Republican Orange County - the latter voting for a Democrat for the first time in a gubernatorial election since Jerry Brown's first re-election in 1978. Cox did well in the more rural areas of the state, even flipping Stanislaus County; Stanislaus is the only county that voted for Brown in 2014 but flipped to Cox in 2018. Cox also narrowly won Fresno County and handily won traditionally Republican Kern County in the Central Valley, and narrowly won Riverside County in the Inland Empire.
