Davis Wants Simon To Drop Out Of Race

Governor Davis is calling on Republican opponent Bill Simon to withdraw from the governor’s race.

Simon concedes his allegation that Davis illegally accepted a campaign check inside the state Capitol is, as the businessman puts it, “now in question.” But Simon defends himself for making the claim, based on now-discredited photographs and a letter released by a group allied with Simon. He says in a statement that he had no reason to question the California Organization of Police and Sheriffs´ good faith belief in their charge against the governor.

The governor said on radio in San Francisco today that Simon, as a former prosecutor, should be embarrassed. And, as Davis put it, “…if he had any sense of honor, he would drop out of the race.”
