SHOCKER!! Gavin Newsom is running for Governor of California. Newsom announced his candidacy over Twitter this morning.
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
Of course, this isn't major news to Projectors. Newsom talked bluntly about his candidacy for the office with contributor Jerame Davis a couple of weeks ago. Newsom backtracked to say he needed to "talk to my wife" before making an official announcement after making definitive statements like, "We're going to need a lot of help - a lot of support. It's going to be a tough race."
