It’s official… as of today there’s one less Democrat running for Governor. In this Los Angeles Times article, San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom cites the always popular “job and family obligations.”
What he didn’t cite was the Field Poll we discussed right here on San Diego Rostra on October 9 in my post, “Governor Moonbeam.” Gubernatorial candidate Attorney General Jerry Brown beat the tar out of Newsom in that early October poll. Newsom had gained zero traction while Brown’s star was rising daily. More important, Brown has a fiercesome campaign treasury – as of the last official report, Brown had $7.4 million in the bank next to Newsom’s $1.2 million.
The numbers never lie, boys and girls.
