Lockyer to Run for Treasurer, Not Governor

In a surprising twist one of California’s most ambitious democrat’s backs off bid to become the Governor. – LAT

Essentially the article states that Bill sees the writing on the wall and feels he’ll be left our in the cold come the primary or general election. Arnold’s poll numbers, while recently taking a bit of a slump, are still relatively strong. He is still a major celebrity with a lot of cash behind him. Arnold is a major force and the Attorney General does not feel he has the political Capitol to battle Arnold and win.

This raises the stakes dramatically on the treasurer’s race which had been dominated by former GOP Gubernatorial Candidate Bill Simon and to a lesser degree Assemblyman Keith Richman. The other democrats in the race are all relatively unknown democrat legislators with little name ID and fundraising difficulties.
