Sacramento, CA — State controller Steve Westly has thrown his hat in the ring to become California´s next Governor.

Westly made the official announcement Saturday during an on-line chat and conference call with supporters statewide.

Westly says he will try new and innovative programs to bring the state back to its past levels of prosperity.

Westly is the second Democrat to enter the race for governor, which means he will run against state treasurer Phil Angelides for the Democratic nomination.

Governor Schwarzenegger hasn´t said whether he will run for re-election.
