Support Grows For Schwarzenegger

Two prominent Republicans have thrown their support behind Arnold Schwarzenegger in the gubernatorial recall. Conservative businessman Bill Simon announced thursday he is supporting Schwarzenegger. And a Republican source says Congressman Darrell Issa, who financed the gubernatorial recall, will announce his support for Schwarzenegger Friday.

Schwarzenegger also was backed today by the California Republican County Chairmen´s Association, a group of Republican committee leaders from California´s 58 counties. The group, which has ties to grass-roots activists, does not normally endorse. The endorsements appear to step up pressure on state Senator Tom McClintock to leave the race to replace Davis if he is recalled, but the conservative Republican legislator said flatly today he won´t quit.
