Villaraigosa to Announce Governor Plans Today
The Associated Press and other sources report that L.A. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa will make an announcement today concerning his gubernatorial ambitions on The Situation Room With Wolf Blitzer. The source for the story is Villaraigosa's City Hall spokesman, Matt Szabo. The CNN program will air at 1 p.m. local time.
Villaraigosa has faced mounting apathy to his hopes to become governor and an L.A. Times opinion poll published this weekend showed lukewarm job-approval -- and even less enthusiasm for a Villaraigosa statehouse bid -- from L.A. voters, who would form the core of the mayor's support in any such race in 2010.
