Democratic state Treasurer Phil Angelides is poised to announce that he will run for California governor in 2006, launching an early assault against Republican Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger more than a year before the primary election.But only in California could you see something like this:
A Field Poll released last week showed Schwarzenegger holding a 15-point lead over any potential 2006 challenger. In a hypothetical match-up, the poll found Angelides would place third in a Democratic primary behind Atty. Gen. Bill Lockyer and Rob Reiner, the actor and director known for promoting early childhood education.And Sally Struthers for Attorney General, perhaps? Reiner has said he's not interested in running.
