Sept 15 (Reuters) - A failed effort by Republicans to recall California Governor Gavin Newsom is a "resounding victory" for the state's Democratic leader and a science-based approach to fighting the COVID-19 pandemic, the White House said on Wednesday.

President Joe Biden will speak with Newsom in the near future, White House spokesperson Jen Psaki told reporters at the White House. (Reporting by Trevor Hunnicutt; Writing by Tyler Clifford; Editing by Tim Ahmann)
