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?
