Recall Update: More Candidates, Davis Gets a Boost

The number of candidates for California´s governor recall election continues to grow.

Former congressman Michael Huffington is considering running for governor. The Washington Post is reporting that Huffington´s ex-wife, columnist Arianna Huffington, is going to announce that she´s running.

Actor Arnold Schwarzenegger has promised to reveal his political intentions today. Former Los Angeles Mayor Richard Riordan says he´ll consider entering the governor´s race if Schwarzenegger doesn´t.

The filing deadline is this Saturday.

Meanwhile, Governor Gray Davis got a boost from one of the nation´s most powerful labor groups. The AFL-CIO called on Californians to oppose the recall and asked Democrats to keep their names off the ballot to replace Davis if he´s ousted.
