Anyway we can make all the Dems drop out?
From what I understand, no other democrats have officially announced........yet.
Good, maybe they will go back under their bridges.
Being governor of California is a high profile political job. The governor of California often gets national attention. Could it be that with the enormous problems facing California, that not too many ambitious politicians want to be the governor????
I am not to sure I would want the job. With our Federal Gov, messing everything up, you are going to get yelled at no matter what you do.
would that be the character known as Governor Moonbeam?
The real story behind this is that Newsom brings too much baggage to the train. The public memory of his affairs with his best buddy’s wife and their mutual cocaine use is still a little too current for the dems to risk backing him. I saw on another link that I’m on that the buzz is to wait a few more years until public memory wanes.
Brown...Brown...Brown...wasn’t his father once the Governor??
I agree. Whitman and Brown should follow Newsome.
He cheated on his wife Kimberly Guilfoyle of the FNC. She hosts The Lineup. Very beautiful and smart woman. I will never see what she saw in that sleazeball Newsom. Love blinds the brain.
That may be true of Republican would-be's, especially after the Ahnuld disaster (although Meg Whitman is already running a heavy schedule of radio ads). But this is a situation made in Heaven (and probably Chicago) for Brown. He's been running for Governor ever since he re-entered politics as Oakland Mayor.
His constituency is Obama's constituency. They are both Marxists who are ashamed of American prosperity and want to see us reduced to Third World status. Both are true children of the 1960s' New Left Cultural Revolution. As someone put it in an article I read here earlier, Californians must suffer the fate of living in a state where environmentalism is a religion and economics is a superstition.
