Video footage of the launch of Cox's "Meet the Beast Bus Tour" on Tuesday showed a large bear moving in a closed-off area behind Cox as he delivered remarks.

Cox has promised to make "beastly changes" to California if he is elected to the governorship.

"The beautiful politicians have failed California," Cox said. "We need big, beastly changes to save it. I'll cut taxes, make California more affordable, and shake up Sacramento."

California Gov. Gavin Newsom to face recall vote as petition drive hits signature goal

  California Gov. Gavin Newsom to face recall vote as petition drive hits signature goal Organizers of a petition drive to force a recall election of California Gov. Gavin Newsom gathered enough valid signatures to qualify for the ballot.The 1.6 million signatures are about 100,000 more than needed to force a vote on the first-term Democrat. The validation process won't be complete until Thursday, the deadline for county elections officials to verify the validity of any remaining signatures and report the final signature verification.

Cox's campaign, according to the Times of San Diego, is putting $5 million into an advertising campaign that depicts Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom as the "beauty" who needs to be replaced by a "beast."

On Monday, Cox's campaign released an ad called "Meet the BEAST," where the narrator says, "That's our choice, California. You want beauty," which is followed by the sound of a parrot saying "pretty boy," "or a ball-busting beast?"

Cox's campaign trail display comes just over a week after the California secretary of State's office announced that the effort aimed at recalling Newsom has enough signatures to qualify for the ballot.
