RT @GavinNewsom Is In via Twitter,YT, FB & HuffPo
To the surprise of no one, San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom “officially” declared himself a candidate for governor today, with a media avail at Facebook HQ and a three-minute YouTube on Huffington Post in which he cheerfully tries to sprinkle dirt on Jerry Brown’s political grave.
Here’s his Tweet:
GavinNewsom It’s official- running for Gov of CA. Wanted you to be the first to know. Need your help. Check out video: http://tr.im/iOCN and ReTweet
Watch the video and hear these little nuggets from 41-year-old Prince Gavin:
“I’ve seen what can happen when we stop looking back and start looking for solutions . . . We can’t afford to keep returning to the same old tired ideas and expect a different result. We need new ideas, bold, fresh, innovative solutions to get out of this mess.”
Gee, Gav, we wonder which 71-year-old Democratic rival you might be suggesting is old school?
Question to R&T: I gather from this item that he made no substantive comment about any issue of importance to Californians?

Controversy sells, but I’m afraid that the Newsom anouncement statement is so vague that it’s hard to find much in the way of an attack there, much less a pro-Newsom platform. So if he want to play new Obama …
Speaking of the real Obama, who I picked out early on, he won because he’s a very compelling figure with a strong message. And not really because he did Facebook and Twitter.
I defended Gavin strongly when folks were jumping all over him for the affair with his staffer who was married to his campaign manager. I thought he was still a promising figure.
But he needs a lot more if he’s going to run for governor, much less be a California version of Obama, especially since he was a national co-chairman of the Hillary Clinton campaign.
Right! “A candidate in his own mind”! Suspect his support shall be limited to a select few in the Bay Area, only! That’s if they turn-out to cast votes. ‘He ain’t no Harvey Milk’. Harvey had couth and charisma, both sadly lacking in this aforementioned gent in SF Mayor’s office.
