Governor Davis insists heÂ´ll enter the recall election “with virtual unanimity in Democratic support” despite calls from some Democrats for a prominent member of their party to put her name on the ballot in case Davis loses.
During interviews and public appearances throughout the day yesterday, Davis fielded questions about three California congressional Democrats who have called on Senator Dianne Feinstein to run on the recall ballot.
At an afternoon stop at a battered womenÂ´s shelter in San Francisco, Davis said heÂ´s had strong support from many Democrats, including Feinstein. Feinstein has said she would not run in the election.
Meanwhile, advisers for Arnold Schwarzenegger say the actor is leaning against running on the recall ballot. That would open the door for former Los Angeles Mayor Richard Riordan, who says heÂ´ll consider running if Schwarzenegger does not.
An official announcement from Schwarzenegger could come later today.
