Westly Attacks Governor Schwarzenegger

Sacramento, CA — Democratic State Controller Steve Westly, seeking to unseat Governor Schwarzenegger, says it is a tragedy for California that the governor did not stay on his original bipartisan course.

Now that Schwarzenegger is again courting Democrats, Westly says that no one is quite sure what the governor stands for these days.

Westly is spending about $2 million a week on ads promoting his candidacy and pledges to remain on the air throughout the June 6 election. He says he´ll spend more if State Treasurer Phil Angelides runs television ads attacking him.

Westly refuses to say how he would address California´s current fiscal problems, although he promises to outline his approach to the budget in the coming days.
