Garamendi Jumps to Race for Congress

John Garamendi

The final tip-off that John Garamendi wasn’t going to run for governor came when Greg Lucas asked him on California’s Capitol this week about his first quarter fundraising and the lite gov gave some weasly, rambling, agri-answer about planting and reaping and sowing and harvesting or some such.

Last night, Garamendi spokesman Peter B. Collins made it official, announcing his guy would seek the 10th Congressional District seat being vacated by Ellen Tauscher, who got tapped for an administration job by Obama.

As for the political implications for the governor’s race of Garamendi taking a hike, well, there aren’t many, as Calbuzz reported a few weeks ago.
