CA Gubernatorial candidate John Cox presents himself as the ‘beast’ to Gov. Newsom’s ‘beauty’

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Two Republicans running for California governor have pitched themselves as “the beast” and a “compassionate disruptor” in new campaign ads.

Businessman John Cox lost to Gov. Gavin Newsom in 2018 and launched a campaign bus tour on Tuesday alongside a live Kodiak bear.

He’s painting himself as the beast to Newsom’s “beauty,” saying he can bring bold change to Sacramento.

Former Olympian and reality TV star Caitlyn Jenner calls herself a “compassionate disruptor” in her video.

Its release marked her first time speaking about her candidacy since she entered the race.

The videos mark a new phase in the recall election against Newsom that’s expected later this year.
