Nice head fake, Arnold!
Damn, Arnold fooled me, maybe fooled you, he certainly fooled many people. Most thought he wasn’t going to run for Governor. Now it’s clear that his apparent decision not to run was quite probably a ploy to keep Democrats off guard and lulled into false security.
The final deadline to file for Governor is Sat at 5 pm. This means the Democrats have three days to decide whether to run a major candidate in the election. Arnold kept them guessing and now it’s crunch time.
And “sources say”, Lt. Gov Cruz Bustamente, a Democrat, is considering a run too.
Update: Cruz Bustamente is indeed running, and fellow Democrat Insurance Commissioner John Garamendi is seriously considering a run. As predicted, the Democrats have broken rank and are sacrificing Gray Davis.
Grab the popcorn, folks!
