"In his ruling, Fitzgerald wrote that "as a matter of logic and common sense, it simply is not true that plaintiff only gets to vote once while others get to vote twice. Plaintiff and all California voters have the opportunity to vote two distinct issues" — whether the governor should be recalled and for a replacement candidate.
The judge states that the plaintiff appears "disgruntled" that a replacement candidate with a small plurality might replace a sitting governor who, based on a robust "no" vote, might well have beaten that same replacement candidate in a general election.
"As that may be, such disgruntlement raises no federal constitutional issues and certainly does not give the federal judiciary the right to halt the mammoth undertaking of this gubernatorial recall election," Fitzgerald wrote."
I still think it will be hilarious when California's first black governor is a Republican.
