Gov. Gavin Newsom will not appear as a Democrat on the ballot for his recall election this September after a Sacramento judge denied his lawsuit on Monday.

“Governor Newsom does not advance any constitutional claims in his petition and complaint,” Judge James P. Arguellas’ order said.

Newsom filed a lawsuit in June against his hand-picked secretary of state, Shirley Weber, asking a judge to order California’s top elections official to include his party preference on the recall ballot.

According to the lawsuit, when Newsom filed his answer to the recall, his party preference was mistakenly not included. The court order states that the governor failed to designate his party preference on time.

Right now, candidates running against Newsom are able to elect to list their party preference on the ballot when they file their declarations to run.

The recall election is Sept. 14.
