Peter Ueberroth is deciding who he wants to endorse as a replacement for California Governor Gray Davis — and it may be the Democratic lieutenant governor.
Ueberroth, a former candidate in the race, met privately yesterday with fellow Republicans Arnold Schwarzenegger and state Senator Tom McClintock. After the meetings, he told reporters heÂ´s impressed with both men, but still wants to sit down with Lieutenant Governor Cruz Bustamante before deciding who to endorse.
Ueberroth gave no details about what he discussed with the two candidates, saying that he just wants to know who has the best plan to bring jobs to California. He said he did not ask McClintock to drop out of the race.
Ueberroth and McClintock both denounced the appeals court ruling that could postpone the October 7 recall vote.
