Schwarzenegger To Give Maldonado Boost Over Newsom

Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger plans to defy an apparent decision by the state Assembly to reject his nominee, Republican Abel Maldonado, for lieutenant governor, and swear him into the position on his own. The move will allow Maldonado to run as an incumbent in this year’s election, thereby giving him an advantage over would-be Democratic challengers, including San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom, who is reportedly mulling a run of his own for lieutenant governor.
