Consider this today from the San Fransisco Chronicles political scribes Phillip Matier and Andrew Ross in today's Chronicle, or is it "Wrongicles" ??
No go Antonio: Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa isn't going to run for governor - at least not in 2010.
Our sources in L.A. say Villaraigosa has come to the conclusion that the time is just not right for him to make a state run - given that he hasn't even been sworn in yet to a second term, and that he's facing bloody political fights at home.
With Villaraigosa out, it's going to be an all-out brawl between San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom and California Attorney General Jerry Brown for the Democratic nomination.
Is Villaraigosa in or out?
People close to Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa this morning dismissed a report in the San Francisco Chronicle that he had decided not to run for governor in 2010.
Villaraigosa insiders said the mayor has still not made a decision.
Chronicle political columnists Phillip Matier and Andrew Ross today reported that their sources had told them Villaraigosa had decided not to run, in part because he was facing “bloody political fights” at home.
.....and those political fights will commence soon.
