Today, Whitman, the former President and CEO of eBay, was seeking support from Republican Legislators in the State Capitol.
Whitman, a Republican, was meeting today with members of the GOP caucus not yet aligned with anyone in the 2010 governor’s race.
They’re harder to find than you might think, as Insurance Commissioner Steve Poizner has stumped hard among Republican lawmakers for their support.
Poizner, who first won elective office in 2006, has already garnered the support of 31 of the 44 GOP state legislators.
It seems non-productive and down-right destructive for two well financed GOP players to face each other in a divisive primary election for Governor.
Might Meg Whitman be persuaded to run instead for the U.S. Senate against Barbara Boxer?
