Gavin Newsom Launches Exploratory Bid For CA Governor

Rumor has it San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom, who’s famously made news in recent years around gay marriage, launched a 2010 exploratory bid for California Governorship on Tuesday. That move puts him ahead of the Democratic pack to replace Republican Arnold Schwarzenegger, who is term-limited.

I wonder out loud if the Governator would then look to take on Barbara Boxer or Diane Feinstein in a U.S. Senate race, but I get the feeling Arnold would rather be an executive, and not one of a group of 100 senators.

Other Democrats expected to run include Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, who faces re-election in 2009, and may be in for trouble because of his divorce and subsequent relationship to a television reporter.
