Schwarzenegger Departs To China Leaving Political Trouble Behind

Sacramento, CA — Governor Schwarzenegger will leave his political troubles behind when he jets off to China and Hong Kong this weekend to promote trade along the Pacific Rim.

For Schwarzenegger, the trip provides a convenient opportunity for favorable publicity just days after his collapse at the polls when voters rejected all four of his “year of reform” ballot proposals Tuesday.

Schwarzenegger will leave California Sunday and arrive Monday in Beijing, heading directly to a Special Olympics ceremony and an evening reception with the members of his business entourage.

Along with business meetings and forums to pitch California products, Schwarzenegger will attend a film premiere in Shanghai, give a speech at Qinghua University and tour a steel factory.
