Change of Heart

Gavin Newsom to Run for Lt. Gov

In January, San Francisco’s charismatic young mayor Gavin Newsom told Maureen Dowd that he was quitting politics. Apparently, he’s had a change of heart: Newsom will announce on Friday that he will run for lieutenant governor of California. Originally, Newsom had planned to run for governor but he folded his campaign when he couldn’t raise enough money to challenge Jerry Brown.
