Former California Governor Gray Davis, right, speaks to Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger as former Governor Pete Wilson, left, looks on, during a news conference Thursday Aug. 23, 2007 in Los Angeles. The three along with members of the Voices of Reform Coalition including Common Cause and League of Women Voters met to discuss ways promote a fundamental change in the way political boundaries are drawn to insure fairness and transparency in elections.
Rudy Giuliani expects a plum endorsement this week from one of California’s leading Republicans, former governor Pete Wilson.
The Republican presidential candidate and former New York mayor planned to announce Wilson’s support at a news conference Thursday in Santa Monica, according to several people with knowledge of the endorsement. They spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the matter publicly.
Flap is not surprised by this endorsement since both Mayors have similar social views with strong national defense credentials.
Will this be enough of an incentive for California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger to endorse Rudy?
Remember Schwarzenegger has a goodly number of former Wilson staffers working for him.
Flap thinks it is unlikely that the Governator will this early endorse the Mayor. But, it is possible after January 2008 if Rudy continues to poll well in California.
