California governor campaigns for Biden in South Haven

SOUTH HAVEN, Michigan – California Governor Gavin Newsom visited South Haven Thursday afternoon to campaign for President Biden.

Newsom delivered a speech to the Van Buren County Democratic Party, touching on a variety of topics, including infrastructure and the economy.

He also spoke about Biden's performance at last week's debate, saying things didn't go as Biden's campaign had hoped, but the president was himself in a meeting with Democratic governors on Wednesday.

Newsom says this is the man he wants to see re-elected president in November.

“I believe in his character. I believe he was one of the most influential presidents in our collective lifetime,” Newsom said. “I truly believe Joe Biden is decent, and I'm old-fashioned. … Results matter. Politics is not just performative. It's not just entertainment. It's about getting things done.”
