Gerry Parsky might try his own hand at politics

SACRAMENTO (AP) __ The man who coordinated the Bush campaign in California says he might try his own hand at politics __ as governor.

Gerry Parsky says he´ll explore a run next year if current Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger decides not to run.

Schwarzenegger has said he´ll make that decision in the spring. Parsky is chairman of the University of California Board of Regents. He´s also a multi- (M) millionaire with close ties to the White House.

But he´s unpopular with some California Republicans because he testified against Schwarzenegger´s plan to privatize public employee pension systems.
