Another Year, Another Race

Posted by brightcoast on January 6, 2009

As the new year unfolds, I am getting increasingly excited about the race for governor of California. So far as I know, the two main party candidates are Steve Poizner, (R), Insurance Commissioner, and Gavin Newsom, (D), Mayor of San Francisco. I had the opportunity to meet with Mr. Poizneron a few occasions while he was running for State Assembly. He ended up losing to the Democratic incumbent, and later launched his campaign for Insurance Commissioner against the seemingly unanswering Cruz Bustamante. Newsom, however, I have not had the pleasure of meeting in person, but have born witness to several of his programs in San Francisco, and heard stories about back when he was a Poli Sci undergrad just like me at our alma mater (FYI it involved him wearing a pink polo shirt to the San Quentin prison fieldtrip….) Anyway, I am sure that the transition in the media coverage to this head of state will begin to gain momentum soon, and I can’t wait for the propaganda to commence.
