After California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) survived the Republican-led effort to remove him from office, recall candidate Larry Elder conceded on Tuesday night but told his supporters to "stay tuned," AP reports.

Why it matters: Elder's concession speech suggested that the recall campaign may not be his last, potentially setting up another race between the two men in 2022 when Newsom faces reelection.

What they're saying: Elder, a 69-year-old radio host, told his supporters that "we may have lost the battle, but we are going to win the war," according to AP.

  • "I can't think of anything that this man has done in the last two years that suggests he deserves another day in office," Elder said, referring to Newsom.

  • Elder last week declined to say if he would challenge Newsom again in 2022.

The big picture: Newsom received more than 5.8 million votes ( 63.9%) against the recall with all precincts reporting, per state figures.

  • Elder performed ahead of the other candidates who had hoped to replace Newsom if the recall succeeded.
