Inside California Politics: Bullpen discuss controversy over cancellation of UN Gov Newsom climate conference

“It was quite a logistics nightmare,” Hoeven said. “Right before the governor is supposed to fly to Scotland — just two days before — he abruptly announces he’s not going to go.”

“If they had just been a little more forthcoming initially I think it would have gone a little more smoothly for him,” Sovern said. “A lot of that I think you lay at his doorstep for the way they handled the communication.”

Story Highlights

  • Ultimately it’s up to the governor’s office to be transparent about Newsom’s whereabouts, Sovern said.
