Some Republican Party leaders and activists say pressure is building on the party to pick one candidate in the October 7 recall election. State Republicans are holding their convention this weekend in Los Angeles.
Some in the party say they donÂ´t want to favor one candidate over another.
Placer County GOP chairman Ken Campbell says the choice should be made by the voters, not party leaders.
In the latest Field Poll, actor-turned-candidate Republican Arnold Schwarzenegger trails Democratic Lieutenant Governor Cruz Bustamante in the race to replace Governor Davis if heâ€™s recalled. In that same poll, when likely voters were asked their preference if Republican Senator Tom McClintock dropped out, Schwarzenegger and Bustamante were in a dead heat.
McClintock has repeatedly said he wonÂ´t drop out.
