Tracking Gov. Gavin Newsom's Campaign Promises
The Newsom-Meter will measure whether Gov. Gavin Newsom is able to accomplish what he told voters and ultimately rate each promise as ‘Kept’, ‘Broken’ or ‘Compromise.’ It's the same process PolitiFact used with the Obameter to hold President Obama accountable and is currently used with the Trump-O-Meter to track President Trump’s commitments.
