Will Nava have to reconsider?

Share: Share on Facebook submit to reddit StumbleUpon Toolbar

Assemblyman Pedro Nava, just re-elected to his third and last term in the Assembly, has had his sights on a campaign for attorney general in 2010. It seems a given that Jerry Brown will give up that post to run for governor, and Nava has some credentials that would make him a viable candidate: a solid reputation in the Legislature and a background as a deputy district attorney.

However, Nava's calculations might have been based on the hope that San Francisco District Attorney Kamala Harris, one of President-elect Barack Obama's earliest and most committed California supporters, would seek a job in the Obama administration.

Instead, Harris announced last week she will be a candidate for California attorney general if Brown vacates the post. Harris may have some liabilities -- she's from San Francisco, and some in the law enforcement community will never forgive her for not seeking the death penalty in a police-officer killing -- but she also has the formidable strength of being a Friend of Barack.

There are likely only a few candidates around the country who earned enough good will in the Obama campaign to get the benefit of Obama's vast e-mail list of supporters and contributors for a 2010 campaign. But given Harris' role in the campaign, she could very well be one.

Quite awesome report. I would second using WordPress. It does so much more than just blogging. I built my own site with it and it was pretty simple to use. I am not that tech savvy and that i figured it out. so most folks should be able to figure it as well.

Over the last 25 presidential elections, Ventura County voters have backed the winner 24 times, or over 95 percent of the time. It is one of only a handful of counties in the nation that has been such a predictable bellwether.
