The Business of Political Recalls with Orrin Heatlie

Show Notes

Politics aside, the Recall Newsom Campaign deserves much credit for what it has been able to achieve. According to Ballotpedia, "since 1911, there have been 55 attempts to recall a California Governor. The only successful recall campaign was in 2003 when voters recalled then-Gov. Gray Davis.”
On the heels of the September 14th recall vote, the Recall Newsom Campaign is nearing its final stages. What has made this campaign successful thus far? After all, this is the fifth of six recall attempts filed against Newsom since 2019.
Orrin Heatlie serves as the executive leader of the Recall Newsom Campaign, and he shared some business insights into the recall campaign from following the NIMS management strategy to Facebook marketing to radio advertising to making business decisions and not political ones.
