Republican gubernatorial candidate Arnold Schwarzenegger has gotten a vote of confidence from one blue chip Republican. The Schwarzenegger campaign reports a one-thousand dollar donation from former President George H.W. Bush, whom Schwarzenegger served as chairman of his physical fitness council.
Meanwhile, former state Republican Party Chairman Mike Schroeder says SchwarzeneggerÂ´s camp has tapped a longtime conservative operative to help muster backers for a show of support this weekend at the party convention in Los Angeles.
But Schwarzenegger campaign spokesman Rob Stutzman downplayed the role of the operative, saying the campaign had many volunteers working to gather support from different groups.
