Larry Elder Speaks After Being Assaulted in L.A. on Wednesday-ss-Featured

Larry Elder, a conservative radio host who many think would replace Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom in California after a recall election this month, released a response following him and his security detail being attacked and assaulted while in Los Angeles on Wednesday.

Elder was touring Venice Beach’s homeless encampments with his campaign and security when the attack against his group happened.

A video that was posted online shows two hecklers shouting racial slurs against Elder repeatedly. After that, a white woman wearing a pink gorilla mask on a bike appeared and tossed an egg at Elder, which almost hit his head.

More footage showed the masked woman attempting to hit one of Elder’s security personnel, slapping him in the face. Another person hit the same personel a while later. After that, a white SUV can be seen approaching and Elder’s group ushered the candidate into the vehicle before it drove away.

“Today I kicked off the Recall Express bus tour. Before we even left Los Angeles, my security detail was physically assaulted, shot with a pellet gun, and hit with projectiles. The intolerant left will not stop us. We will recall Gavin Newsom. We will save California,” Elder wrote on Twitter on Wednesday.

 

Elder decided to join the race back in July.

In a statement on his campaign site, he said he ran for governor “because the decline of California isn’t the fault of its people.”

He went on to say: “Our government is what’s ruining the Golden State.”
