San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom announced this afternoon that he is withdrawing from the California governor's race.
More to follow.
Another fraud out of the way. This guy is truly an empty socialist can
Does that mean that Governor Moonbeam is in?
Perhaps this gov race is between Whitman and Poizner?
Moonbeam is in like Flynn, unless DiFi throws her hat in, I guess.
Wow, I thought he was in it for the long haul.
The actual text of his concession speech: “I’m withdrawing, whether you like it or not!” (thunderous applause)
Hmmmm, Mabye his skeletons in the closet were rattling around and making too much noise!
Not sure if Moonbeam is ‘in.’ When more is revealed about him, he may be ‘out’ of the race as well.
That phone call taping business, and the personal life issues (though most in leftist CA wouldn’t care much about that) could cause him some trouble.
San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom, who has been seen as a leading contender to be the next governor of California, announced today that he is quitting the race.
Newsom is withdrawing from the Democratic primary amid lackluster poll numbers and meager fund-raising receipts. His withdrawal leaves state Atty. Gen. Jerry Brown, who is expected to run even though he has not officially entered the race, with little opposition in the Democratic primary.
Although Newsom had been effectively running for more than a year, his campaign never gained much traction. Even in his hometown, which Newsom touted as a model of cutting-edge policies, his candidacy was widely derided among civic insiders.
Newsom had repeatedly told those close to him that he did not want to embarrass himself in the governor's race.
"With a young family and responsibilities at city hall, I have found it impossible to commit the time required to complete this effort the way it needs to -- and should be -- done," Newsom said in a statement.
He did not know he had a family before he announced he was a candidate?
My guess he is stepping out of someone's way. Probably Di Fi, or possibly Pelosi?
Hate crime, hate crime!
That’s my guess.
What’s he been caught doing this time?
Moonbeam is 100 times preferable to this Newsom scumbag. May even be preferable to RINO Meg Whitman.
