Republican John Cox is making another $1 million personal contribution to his campaign for California governor.

Fox News reported that the businessman was expected to make the second personal donation on Thursday. Cox is looking to succeed Democrat Gov. Gavin Newsom, who is facing a possible recall for his handling of the pandemic in the state.

According to the news network, Cox is worth more than $200 million. He is an accountant, attorney, and developer.

Cox will be a candidate in the proposed recall election this year, if it qualifies for the ballot, or will run against Newsom when he is expected to seek a second term in 2022.

Cox was the 2018 Republican gubernatorial nominee in California. He recently spent seven figures to run a TV campaign commercial statewide in California.

“I’m a businessman, not a politician,” Cox said in the ad. “It’s time for a fresh start.”

Fox News noted than organizers of the Newsom recall say they’ve already collected more than the 1.5 million signatures needed by March 17 to force a recall election later this year.

Cox also contributed $50,000 to the recall effort.
